I'm spending a bit much time fiddling with monobloc needle heights and throttle slides, especially as the oil feed from the tank return to the overhead gear passes right over the top of the carb, so i have been removing the carb. see the pics. NO MORE!

so before I go bending and wrenching this pipe (so i can remove the slide without removing the carb), is there any preferred route this pipe should take, and any method to bending that is less likely to crimp it? i have a small radius pipe bender but it's unlikely to get in those gaps.


thanks

ok nevermind, not too hard to reshape that pipe with careful hands. but now the issue is the choke mechanism makes it hard to get the throttle slide out, tho probably not much to do about that

 Maybe there could be a choice of factory options, but I'd say Irma a personal choice and run it how it suits you.  If the copper isn't long enough, use rubber hose as some models do-  depends how 'original' you want to be. ..?
