    Hi mate
    You sure youve connected the cable to the carb slide properly ?

    did you set air mixture and slide adjustment back to how it should be ?

    on top of the carb is a screw with a spring on, this adjusts the slide, with the throttle off this shouldnt be completely closed. It needs to be about 1.5mm open or there abouts

    Yeah, if you change the throttle cable the slide can become out of adjustment. So I would take a look at that first.

    What was up with the carb if your throttle cable had snapped?

    That is a joke.
    A brand new carb after needing a new throttle cable? fill us in on more info, what was wrong?
    Next time you need parts for carbs and all that kind of rubbish put it on here before buying a full one.
    Labour, well. Do it yourself lad, fitting a stator and carb wouldn't take much longer than a hour. Maybe an hour and half?
    Service? Was it due one? You could have serviced it yourself. I imagine where you took it said you might as well have one while it's apart?
    Don't wanna sound a cock, but you probs could have saved yourself 180 of that depending on your issues.
