Had the same problem, had to cut the cable and use WD40 and tweezers to free it BUT i'm sure there's a better way.

The Tank is attached to the frame via one bolt under the tank nearest the seat and after you remove the fuel lines the tank lifts up and off, lift seat end up first.

Hope that helped.

My 2004 gs500 been sitting for 3yrs with fuel in it , run only when the choke is on

When petrol is left for too long, part of the fuel evaporates. Even through a tank. it leaves a sticky residue behind that not only won't burn, but will block up the jets in the carb. First try with new fuel mixed with a fuel additive such as Redex. if the problem is still there, you will need to get the carbs cleaned.

I have just bought a 1988 vespa px 125 under the seat there is 2 holes one for the petrol and one that says oil ive put 2 stroke oil in the oil tank and petrol in the petrol tank today i hit 50 and the...

older Vespas without separate Oil-tanks need a premix of 1:50 oil in the gasoline - but yours is an automatic oil-mixer type.
check the oil-level-glass under the seat near the choke.
it must be full of oil - the oil tank can hold about 1 liter of 2-stroke oil. How much oil did you fill in?
Probably the previous owner removed the oil supply tube and filled always an oil-gasoline premix. You better ask him about it. If the tube was removed then there was no oil supplied to your engine and it got stuck and the engine bearings are blown.

Chock stuck open

hi most likely the cable is corroded, remove the cable bar end first then unclip from carb end easy job if the cabe is seized the choke will return to its resting position, in this case replace cable, or free off and lubricate old cable.paul

Motorbike will not start

before you stored it for the 3 months did you drain the carbs and petrol tank... if you havent then your probably right to think that fuel isnt flowing to the engine.. overtime petrol additives eveporate leaving a gunky residue in the float bowls of the carbs and clogging up the jets... so drain all the old fuel, clean the carbs and hopefully that should get you back on the road

How to change throttle cable on 2005 rm 125

The carburator will need to remove the seat and gas tank.The top of the carb will turn off counter clockwise, then you can pull the "slide" up out of the carburator. Note which is the front for re-assemble. There is a spring between the slide and cap, and look into the slide to see if your cable clips in, or may have a phillips screw and plate to remove to get the cable free. I use needle nose pliers to hold the spring back to remove and replace the cable.
The throttle end is easier. Remove the plastic cap and unthread the adjusting worm nut. The cable end "ball" will come out with the help of needle nose pliers also. Pull the cable slack up to rotate the "ball" out of the throttle tube.
Hope this helps!
