hey does anybody know what i did wrong?
the other day i broke the throttle cable on my 1978 sear free spirit (made by puch). as a i started to replace the cable i got motivated to do a bunch of other repairs.
while i had my carburator open to replace the throttle cable i tried to clean it out.
then i cut some wires that were too a brake light that didnt work and the horn which i didnt use.
i also put on a new throttle grip and brake lever that came off a garelli.
when i got everything back together my moped wouldnt run at all. i found out i had cut a wire that went to the ignition, so i reconected the wire and my moped started again.
but the problem is now my normally peppy ped is really sluggish. my flat ground top speed used to be about thirty now its only 24-25
could my reconnected wire not be working as well as it should? (or is electric more of an all or nothing thing?)
could my cleaning of the carb mean that my air fuel ratio is off?
is it possible that my new throttle body doesnt pull enough cable to get me to top speed?
also the slide in my carb seems to get stuck in the up (or open) position, does this hurt performance?
any other ideas? im desperate!
