been answered many times before.

but yes it can be cleaned, few screwes to loosen the intake pipe, and a lint free cloth, can use carby cleaner if you need it. also if your on gas, or have an over oiled airfilter, youll need to do this more often.

as for upgrade youve just missed a groupby of larger throttles, but most people wouldnt suggest an upgrade utill your motor has alot of work.

hope it helps

carby cleaner in a spray can with some clean rags works awesome...

you mention over-oiled filter, cough cough.
I've got a 'mate' who seems to have over-oiled his filter :wink: (dont blame him since it was his first attempt), but, is it really sucking much oil through the system and does it have any detriment on components? Should I, he clean it and re-apply oil again.
