    Got a cheapo shit little scooter (sukida sk125t-18) got the honda GY6 cloned
    engine in her arse part, i'm guessing a similar cloned carb to waht ever
    used the 125cc GY6 engines (carby is one of those with the diaphram
    connected to a slider with the needle in it, throttle works a throttle plate
    rather than the throttle pulling on the slider directly)

    Faffing about opening the air box up, different exhaust and all that crap,
    but the bugger is jetted lean to start with, got a 109 main jet in her at
    the moment, and really want to get a selection of jets so i can have a play
    whilst i'm away in europe from next month.

    But all the bike shops around here dont stock any parts nowadays, all order
    them in but as usual, as soon as i mention 'chinese' they dont want to know.

    So, saying i can figure out what carby i have a clone of, where's the best
    place to get a selection of main jets from that delivers fast and are
    cheap/reasonable for the little bits of brass with an ole in it which is all
    a jet is???

  3. Silly question, I've never done carb jets before but I understand
    that they just screw in, can you not get a thread pitch guage to
    measure the thread pitch and some vernier calipers to measure the size
    of the thread? They might be the same size as a mikuni or something.

    Might be worth trying bat motorcycles - I think they used to do a lot
    of business with importing bikes www.bat-motorcycles.co.uk.

    Failing that what about a local dyno/tuner, they deal with jets day in
    day out so they would definately be able to help.

    Additionally, add a link to a load of photos of the carb in this post,
    there is a huge amount of knowledge in the minds of the poeple who
    lurk here!

  4. Some of it gained from the ukrm ffaq, which you appear not to have read.
    Or if you have you have failed to understand. Please **** off and read
    it and please pay attention to the bit about posting styles, in
    particular the bit about leaving in some of the relevant bits you are
    replying to.

  5. Apparently it is a direct copy of a suzuki gn125 which use mikuni
    Same engine is used in the suzuki gs125 and dr125.

    Follow this link - http://www.bikebandit.com/partsbandit/OEM-Parts-Nav.asp

    It's an online parts directory with exploded diagrams etc - should be
    able to identify your carb
