Hi guys I had my carb on to clean and the air screw was set too 1 1/2. I read it's 2 1/2. Do I put it back to 1 1/2 or set it to 2 1/2

is it stock, and is the carb a dell'orto or a "spaco" dell'orto?

As far as I am aware the stock setting is 1.5 on the T5, like for the other P series - but the finer threaded spacos should be 2.5 stock.

That being said, it's really about what runs best on your scoot - the difference between 1.5 and 2.5 is relatively modest and you can find which side of that range your idle and takeoff are smoothest
