Re: 2003 Targa Lx Problems Help!

does it smoke much when it does run? Did you mix gas and oil in the tank, what kind of oil did you use in the injector, and what kind did you use if you mixed gas/oil

Re: 2003 Targa Lx Problems Help!

hey ray no it doesnt smaoke much and its fuel injewcted so i dont have to i use regualr unleaded gasoline and 2 cycle oil. Thanks .

Re: 2003 Targa Lx Problems Help!

You cant just use regular 2 cycle oil in the oil injector. It has to be special 2 cycle injector oil. Regular 2 cycle is to thick for the oil injector and wont work.

you need to downjet. your probobaly fouling your plug. your burning too rich. you can get jets for a few dollars from mopedwarehouse.

Re: 2003 Targa Lx Problems Help!

hey what is a downjet, what does it do?

Re: 2003 Targa Lx Problems Help!

also ryan i couldnt find any downjets on mopedwarehouse, was i looking it up wrong? Or is there somewhere else?

Re: 2003 Targa Lx Problems Help!

"Downjet" is a term describing replacing the main 'jet' in your carburetor with a smaller one.

Do you know what kind/brand of carb you have?

Any idea of the jet size?
