suzuki fa 50

were is the throttle on the carb of a late 80's fa50? my bud bought one w/o a throttle cable and now we have one but cant find the throttle

It's right on top of the carb. There should be little screw on cap that has a small point on the end where the throttle cable goes through.

Re: suzuki fa 50

thank you! i am getting paid $50 to fix it!

Re: suzuki fa 50

wait, could you take a pic of were it is cause im starting to think this is not the original carb so i still cant find it

Re: suzuki fa 50

then it looks to me like you owe brystheguy $25. ha ha.

btw - if you can't figure out how to hook up the throttle cable, the last thing you should be doing is trying to fix it. and the second to last thing you should be doing is charging someone $50 for it.

Re: suzuki fa 50

first - refund the $50.

then -

check out http://www.bikebandit.com for the schematic and see if it's even the right carb.

Re: suzuki fa 50

Re: suzuki fa 50

Re: suzuki fa 50

ah screw it but thanks for your help but it would cost $150 to reapeair a $50 bike so he is gunna look for something like my express

Re: suzuki fa 50

you're going to waste an FA50 because you dont have a $5 piece???

Re: suzuki fa 50

Buy a used carb on ebay for like $25-35 bucks.

IT takes a little work to get a bike going again but it can be fun if you are into it.
