Re: Bombardier performance (90 cc)
Water in the gas / carb can happen when its tank is 1/8 to 3/4 full, and the weather temps go up / down. Fall and spring is the worst time of year for gasoline "water condensation". To help reduce this natural effect, mix your next tank of gas with gasline antifreeze. (as per its ratio recommendations). This antifreeze fluid helps reduce water condensation.
Another way to eliminate condentation is to keep the mini-gas tank full AFTER every ride. This dramaticailly helps.
If you live in a freezing cold climate (like my family), do NOT use oil down the brake cables. The oil will eventually freeze and/or attract dirt. Thus, "gum up" the cable's movement. For me, I found the best lubricate for cables in my cold area is "gasline antifreeze". It melts frozen water condentation in the cables and helps keep it away - so the cables won't freeze & get stuck.
Hope this helps as well...
