Can’t run my ty175 with an airfilter, why ?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I’ve been working hard at restauring a nice ty175B 1975 and after cleaning the carb and changing piston rings, i still can’t get any power after first gear. But if i take off the air filter, I get enough torque to shift and I have great acceleration. What should I do ? I was thiking maybe a mikuni carb fixing kit, new seals and gaskets ?

Just to add, if the air filter is over-oiled you can fix it by putting it between paper towels and running it over with a rolling pin a lot ... I always feel the urge to use too much oil! (same as with shampoo, washing-up liquid, etc, lol)
