Throttle body tough to remove
[SIZE="a"]The throttle body on my '05 C50T won't come off. I don't want to mess with the rubber holding it on too much for fear of ripping it. Thought of using something like WD-40 to maybe seep in there and loosen the bond, but not sure if that will damage the rubber. Agree that it'd be easier if it was out of the way though.[/SIZE][/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]

|Quokimo||Great post. Just bought one with 19k miles on it already. Makes me wonder when the last inspection was . . .|

James P I have to thank you for your informative post. I started to do my valve adjustment, got as far as tank off and chrome covers off and looked at was left to come off and decided against the job. One reason is I have the 2006 c50t raised up on a bike lift, but arthritis in my back gets pretty sore bending over that long.
I have 7,500 miles on it and the valves were done at the 600 mile check up. Im told it is something that must be done. How critical is this. If need be Ill have to go to the dealer. Is there a standard charge for this and if so, what might that be? Thanks again, I really could have used all your experience. Ron

I just did the valves on my 2008 C50T this weekend and it was a pain in the butt! Which raised two questions:
1 - What tool do you use to remove the 8mm bolt on the left side of the front cylinder exhaust valve cover?
2 - and what do you use to remove the 10mm nut on the rear cylinder intake valve cover?
I went to Canadian Tire and UAP NAPA stores to find a tool, but they had nothing that would fit.
There's not a lot of room to work with! I ended up using a socket held by a vise-grip, but it's not practical and I don't like the fact that it damages sockets.
