Still haven't cracked the scooter... but I've downloaded and printed all relevant material to do the job right.

All I need is time !!!!!!

Thank you, this is all great info.

I will know more once I crack the scooter in two and get at the carb.

I suspect a good cleaning of the carb and the renewal and correct repositioning of all hoses will go far in getting this scoot to perform well again !!

Quick update on the scooter...

New front fork, brakes and tires are on !!

Followed the instructions on the website for splitting the Riva and working on the carb.

The diagrams worked great !!

I found some disconnected hoses, a cracked hose and one with a broken nipple inside it. I used some JB Weld to fix it and now I'm waiting for that to cure before I re-assemble the scooter.

Re-assembly will follow shortly !!
