it's the same colour as the fuel filler neck , green so guessing from that.
plastic tank too but that's black

i think i have been chasing the wrong problem :headbang: , fucking about with jetting & needle hights
giving a too rich mixture , but i think the float needle not closing would give excess fuel
so give the same result .

reassembled the carb , main needle back to mid position
in line filter fitted (£3 so doubled the value of the scooter )
went out for a 20mile test run , pulled the spark after & not sooty :yup:
first time ever , fingers crossed it was plastic stuck in the carb body that was the issue :mrgreen:
