I have been noticing that my Derbi Atlantis has been acting as though it is starving for fuel. The take off is decent,but it acts like it hits a wall about 3/4 throttle and will not pick up speed.It has a manual choke and when you turnit on,it immediately gains speed. So, I asked my friend, who is a mechanic, if I could borrow his torch tip cleaner. I removed the main jet and reamed it out with the torch tip cleaner. I kept looking at it as I was opening up the hole and when I felt that it was big enough, I reinstalled it. It ran better than ever!!! The tip cleaner has several very tiny wires that will easily fit some of the smallest jets. I am not sure how much they cost,but I am sure they are well worth the money.
Or, you could just get a cheap set of pin gauges in the range of the jets. I believe a set of about 30 different precision sizes was about $20 back in the day. Just quickly found these on Amazon for $30 for a set of 50 but, I am sure you can find cheaper.
Well,here is my 2 cents....hemostats,reverse drill bits, and easy outs are a must have for your tool kits. Oh and those magnetic tip things for getting lost screwsand metric taps and good metric screws. But first 49cc forum.
Great for cleaning pilot jets is stranded electrical wire. Pilot holes are so small that often times you won't have something handy that will even get into them. Just cut off a short length of stranded electrical wire if you have it handy and start with one filliment, then go to two, then three..
50 razz, 50 ysr, 50 morini, 90 beluga, 170 4T- all junk. only 1 or 2 actually run at any given time
In a pinch you can also use control cables to clean out jets, but they are harder and larger diameter strands than electrical wire. You could scratch up the internal passages of the jets. Unlikely to ruin your jets but may be possible. If you have old broken clutch cables, old brake cables, instead of throwing the whole thing away, cut off a piece and save it just in case you need it for jets.
An electric guitar string (high E in either 10 or 9 gauge) is available at your music shop behind the counter for under a buck. Just poke it out.
or just save the high E string when ya break one or use the trim from when ya restring it!..... on my Martin I buy that string in BULK as I am always breaking the dammed thing....an no I dont use a pick!
