Sorry I should have been more clear, the main section is "General" discussion and the such, the 2 sub sections are for gas or electrical specific troubleshooting or modification related info, general = random chat, and newbies that want to buy, sub-sections are more for technical support or specific tasks etc...

Thanks for taking the time to ask, and SORRY for the long winded post :D

ah i see. well you can look foward to me blowing up the gas scooter technical section. truthfully ive only owned a 40cc cag bike and a polini banshee rep. i personally dont care for riding a pocket bike with my 6 foot 3 stance its a lil uncomfortable lol. i came to PBP to get info and tuning tips for a couple of cag engines i got off ddm for $25 a pop during one of their sales. on gpn were ive been ousted by the troll moderator ryank i used to try to help and promote engine tuning knowlage. if u do a google search of hand porting a 2 stroke engine my youtube video is the first to pop up. ive been sharing my porting specs and other underground tuning secrets for years. ive built many race motors for many people, i try to stay somewhat low key, i dont do it for the money, i do it with a passon. i annoy myself, lol, by constantly finding myself in my online searches for more info. google polini 50cc 5 port porting...lol

I'm the same way, all the 3D stuff will be just so PBP can be a more unique forum, custom literature and amazing users are all a good forum could ever hope to have!

I could bill $90 an hour, but PBP has not got tons of $$$,$$$ to drop on custom animations, So I'll do them for free, and hope it can help drive our traffic up, then we can get some cool prizes and do more contests.

Kev, we're not going to oust you unless you're being a major-league jerk. Even then, I think I'LL be ousted before you will ... :D

Nice idea for putting in the gas/electric scooters/gopeds section, nick. Now I'll be able to show off a few of my other rides, as well.

this site has more mature members, and a great staff, i dont think ill ever be put in a position to be a major jerk. GPNs biggest problem is the 1 moderator, who trolls and baits you, and trys to provoke you into lowering yourself to his level and get yourself banned. too much drama and kiddies over there.

thank you to the PBP staff for the new forum.

Hi! I just got a nice little 33cc zooms stand up that was beat up and abused, so I road it for a few months thinking it would crap out soon.. but to my surprise it kept on going. I feel in love with it and decided to rebuild the entire scooter, so after many weeks and $$$ later I have the entire thing rebuilt, motor, deck, brakes, the whole nine yards! But I am having alittle trouble tuning the carb, its a 10mm that has the idle needle in the top of the throttle twisty part and another needle sticking out the side of it. I believe it is a direct copy of a walbro WYJ-138?. Thanks guys! First time posting to the site, let me know if I'm fukin up

I'm not familiar with that carb, you could remove the carb needle and shoot some carb cleaner in to clean it, personally I would probably just get a new one from Daves discount motors, also Daves has a FAQ page with carb and engine information I find very useful, good luck

I agree with Blata. Give it a quick clean and then look up a guide for tuning a small engine carb.

Is it a China clone carb or real Walbro. The top brass screw in the hole is the Low speed gas jet, and the side is the High speed jet screw. There control how much gas goes thru the 2 holes in the upper left rear bore, just behind the throttle plate. The top one is epoxied in place, have to break out the epoxy to turn it with a tiny flat blade screwdriver.
The carb sounds like its old, like an old car fuel pump it has a rubber diaphragm driven by the pulse out of the engine cases thru to the manifold or cyld pulse hole, when it gets old it won't pump right or not at all. If you buy one a Dave's, put PBP in the code box for 5% off.
