Hey guys and girls,
Past year just before summer i bought a cosa 200
In the beginning i was not planning to do big changements to it just drive it and enjoy
But after coming home with it the fuel line came off so decided to put a new one.
At the same time i decided to clean the carb



And there i did my firts mistake.
When starting the scoot it would go to high rpm instantly and throttle was not responding like it should.
After ascing here and on an other forum poeple told me i bended the carb by overscrewing it
So took the carb back off and put it on a glass surface and yes it was bended.
So took some sanding paper with olil on and started flatting the carb on it with succes.
