i think soaking it is prob a waste of time

just blow the crap out of all the holes and it should work fine

Well. I just removed the parts from the carb cleaner back. One O ring is about double the size it should be and one plastic diaphragm I didn't see it torn. Hm... Not my best idea.

the o ring might shrink back... wash it in luke warm water or in the sink....

as for the diaphragm you need a new one.

ok i havent exactly been following this thread..... but from the last pics it looks like you have some sort of cat-eye engine.....

does your bike happen to be a X1 or X2 pocket bike?

is the engine 43 or 49cc? do you know?


might want to get the bike identified at pocketbikeplanet.com

Turns out there are no tears in the rubber parts. The carb is all back together and ready to go. Ill be able to try it out soon and get back to you if it worked. Thanks for all your help,
