Those are so simple you can fix it yourself. What's wrong with it or what's it doing/not doing?

the throttle is not really working. I've contacted a solex builder in new york named Brian. He is a wealth of knowlege and has parts too. He sent me videos on how to repair and adjust the throttle cable properly. Yes your right they are easy to rebuild. I just neede someone to tell me how.

thanks for repling...

Brian is THE man! If he can't get you straighten out no one else can.

Yeah, Brian is a blessing. He is very passionate about the solex line. I'm about to order some parts right now from him. He has hooked me up with video's to put them on correctly too. Could not ask for a better deal.

Hey thanks for your interest and be safe,
