@DtxPower Best jetting for Athena 170 is 300 main jet on the
standard Mikuni tm28 carb but with the powerjet blocked off. Just cut the rubber tube in half from the float chamber to the powerjet then block the 2 halves of the rubber tube with a couple of 5mm threaded bolts or similar.
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
@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
