if you cant find the smell, mix coffee grounds with baking soda and leave it out for awhile. if you know where its coming from, wash the area with white vinegar and hot water.

i had this problem when working on 2 strokes in my bedroom when i was younger. lmao.

went and started my big bore kit scoot today. i was amazed. it started first kick after sitting since october in 14*F. no battery and the enricher is removed.



i plan on painting it, jetting it and upgrading the charging system before the riding season. also thinking about retrofitting a cell phone mount to the gauge cluster. i dont trust the chinese speedo.
