I could try that. Actually it has two kick stands and it's only using
the one that makes it lean. I hadn't tried too hard to get it up on
the two-legged kick stand because someone on the scooter webpage
thought that had to be not? deployed (whatever that means) to start
the bike. But a) the generic schematic doesn't show that, and b) now
that it starts easily (after a 10 minute wait ) I'll know if that's
true or not.
No, there's another tube that does that.
This tube it seems was meant to go nowhere. I found on google maps
in an industrial n'hood a place Nnnn Cycle Salvage, and when I went
there it was a dismal warehouse with almost no light, and only about
15 junk bikes afaict, but two were like mine and one still had a
carburetor, and it had the same 2" hose going nowhere. I don't get
I did today, though I haven't put the 90 degree bend in it yet. That
might be necesssary too afaik.
I put my finger on the hole earlier and didn't feel blowing or
It might be hard to feel sucking from such a little hole, but I also
put my finger on the hole where that tube to the auto-shut-off (vacuum
petcock) went, in the intake manifold, and I could feel a little
Earlier I had rolled up a tiny bit of newspaper and stuffed it in that
port, the vacuum porrt , and it ran no better or worse than when the
tube was on it. But when the engine stopped, after the usual 15
seconds or so, the piece of paper shot out 2 feet!!! ???????
It seems good to me. It's not as great as what comes from the hose
directly connected to the tank, buit it has to pass through the
filter, the vacuum petcock and three other short hoses. When I suck
on the petcock vacuum it turns on and when I stop sucking, it stops or
lets a trickle through.
I figured maybe I thought I was sucking for 15 seconds but had really
stopped, so when the engine slowed down, I sucked harder. No change,
still slowing down and dying.
I blew with my lungs but nothing happened. What about an air
