No I haven’t tried to choke it at that point. I’ll give it a go, though I’ll have to find a nice quiet stretch of road. Reaching down for the choke and juggling the throttle is going to be fun! For me anyways! I’m no wheelie king zen type 😇 I’ve spent way too many years abusing my centre of gravity!...
It’s a 28mm tm with a 525j needle Q2 needle jet, and a 22.5 pilot. The main was 180 which seems wrong. I put a 220 in but it made no difference (to the missy transition) I haven’t run it over half throttle yet as I’m running it in. I’m @ 222 miles believe it or not...
As for cleaning it, I admit I usually leave my carb alone as much as possible and leave it for those more experienced then I however cleaning it isn’t too hard.
If you can take the carb off yourself then locate someone with an ultrasonic cleaner and Chuck them a tenner, failing that go to your local bike shop.
However there are plenty of extremely detailed and fool proof tutorials on YouTube for the DT125R look this, courtesy of my favourite grumpy old git of a DT enthusiast, Frankie. link text
I would say your best bet for Jetting would be starting with a 210 main jet found in 04 to 07 models. Set the needle clip one up for the lowest position, wind the air mixture screw (from all the way in) to around a 1/4 turn and start from there!
** assuming you’ve got a standard Mikuni TM28 Flatslide Carb!
@Darty Oh, didn't think of the wr inlet thing. I'm actually trying to modify the original inlet boot right now, if the project is successful I'll post some pictures. But thanks for responding. I don't think I have the skills to design something like that but I could try. I just really don't like my pod filter because it gets wet easily and just sucks a bit overall.
@declan yeah my experience with them is the same, thought id post it because some people might not give them a chance because of the price compared to the branded ones that are 3x or 4x the price and think the replicas must be shit since theyre way cheaper and come straight from china, but so far ive heard nothng but good about them so if your looking at a new carb they seem to be a great option
Been thinking of getting myself a replica TM30ss/TM32SS. The angled spigot as taught to me by darty is very helpful if you do any sort of off roading with your bike. However I certain can’t justify £150+ until I know the setup works very well
