    Glad you sorted the throttle problem that you asked about.

    yup it was just a lube issue with the throttle. the spark plug fouled out on me on the way to work lucky for me i had a tool kit and a auto parts just across from where i work got her running in a jiffy :) and she is quite antisocial on the road hates to wait to cross the main drag lol she gets some stares and jumps though ! hehe

    very fun bike still trying to get the hang of clutching a two stroke sense i was riding a four stroke 125 that i have sense parted ways with. this ole gal likes to wheelie if you are not careful with the ole clutch :) though it grips a dirt road very good at 40 lol :evil i love this dt alot more though and 200 bucks plus a title and bill of sale is a great deal

    What's with the front winker? I guess you can't have it all for $200.
    $200, that's 50cents a CC. You can't say fairer than that.

    the front winkers work i had just got the bike home from when i bought it i have sense went through and replaced the spark plugs took the carb off and cleaned it and lubed the throttle . i also need to spray the clutch with pb blaster or something similar and i need to get a manual to go through the winker wiring as the winkers decided to quit working along with the speedometer light and the rpm gauge does not work not sure if its the gear or gauge i will be going through this as i intend to get it street legal again , according to the paperwork it has not been licensed sense 1993 lol
