    Hi folks, I have a peugeot elyseo 125 that I am trying to improve. I am opening the bad boy to disassemble and clean the carburettor (first time, I am a noob), and I am having problems in disconnecting the carb from the engine.

    Stopped by my neighbor Jason to remove the Gas tank and carb from this 2002 Honda Shadow Sabre VT1100 so that both the tank and carb could be serviced.

    A few weeks ago I started off on an unexpected odyssey. I was simply going to replace main jets, as per the instructions, to match my cone filters, learn to sync my carbs and drive off into the sunset. I figured four hours to a day max. Well here I am two weeks later and a little wiser. After...
