comment Aprillia Pegaso 650 won't start after cleaning carbs, what might be wrong?
You say fuel is present in the manifold but maybe 1) it isn't atomizing (jets) or 2) it isn't enough fuel (fuel pump or clogged jets)

When you say you cleaned the carbs, did you clean the jets or maybe replace the jets? What happens if you hold the throttle while starting?

comment difference between mechanical and hydraulic clutches
Can you elaborate on perfromance? Does a cable driven clutch engage/disengage any faster than a hydraulic clutch? Are there issues with hydraulic being sluggish or having delays in disengaging?

when the a/c turns on the IAC will open to keep the car at 900rpm. If the IAC didn't open the car would drop to 500rpm and die.

comment Forced induction and engine braking
It is the Eco version. Previous car was 2006 Kia Rio 1.4l Auto 4sp. Even in 4th gear though, it just keeps going. The car out of gear actually slows down faster (going down hill) then it does while in gear with no throttle. Of course, out of gear means there is no engine braking.

Didnt realize there was that much of a diff from a 1.6 auto to a 1.4 (turbo) 6 speed manual.
