How to Remove a Moped Carburetor


Properly removing your moped carburetor will ensure you don't damage the parts connected to the carburetor and allow for a clean and easy re-installation. This takes only a few minutes and a basic screwdriver. Once you have removed the moped carburetor, you can perform any other necessary work.

  • Remove the side covers on the moped. These are the large aluminum or plastic pieces that are on the side of the engine compartment. They should pop off easily. Some may have a screw or two that needs to be removed in order to remove the side covers. Set this piece aside.

  • Locate the moped carburetor. This can easily be done by finding the parts attached to the throttle cable. Also, in close proximity to the air box, you'll find a plastic part that covers the air filter and other components. Pop this air box off and set it aside. While removing parts, check for damage and cracking along the way. If you find a part with damage or cracking, consider replacing it.

  • Notice the moped carburetor is attached to the engine by the manifold. This is done with a crimping mechanism. If you use your screwdriver to loosen the screw on the end, it will allow for movement of the crimping mechanism. You can then pop off the carburetor.

  • Detach the throttle cable by giving it a few wiggles. Allow it to hang in place. Once you have done that, you will notice the fuel line is attached in the back of the carburetor. Detach this and allow it to hang freely also. Now, you can slide the moped carburetor out of its mounting for maintenance and cleaning.
