mate in a nutshell, do this

1. know what the octopus is. - the pipe thing anti/backfire round ink squirting thing

2. undo the bolts that hold it on.

3. pull off all the pipes.

4. pull off the WHOLE thing

5. do up the bolts

6. plug the two holes left from it. make sure they are AIR tight

7. reconnect your hot start to the inlet of the cylinder

8. rejet to suit

it will cause a..... rich condition on the pilot circuit after you close the throttle.. i think

9. put it in a fish tank and feed it
