Fixin my buddy 125

I bought a little bit of a beat genuine buddy 125. year 2007.

I think i'm making it worse by fixing it, i removed the carb to try and fix the hesitation it has when i give it a handleful of throttle down low, but the carb was super clean. It looks new even.

I removed the carb book towards the engine, and there was electrical tape wrapped around the carb body, never seen that before. I'm starting to think it's not a carb that belonged here.

The buddy was dropped, the forks were tweaked, but i managed to fix it by aligning the forks. But still tracks to the left if i remove my hands off the handlebars.

Just little probs, it rides fine. Stops, honks and signals

Im posting some videos here in case you want to see the progress. If you guys have any ideas let me know. Im all ears :twisted:

Nice videos. You are correct about the carb. The one in your Buddy is not OEM.

Been going at it, luckly it has been fairly easy to fix but it sucks i dont have the stock carb.

Tomorrow im going to ride it to work to see how she behaves.

Are there any better shocks out there? this one is so soft
