    `Taiwanese carbs dont need any jetting changes at all, and are a straight bolt on replacement for the OE Keihin.`
    Maybe Honda, Gas Gas and all the rest should buy these incredible carbs. I have yet had a bike that came jetted properly, let alone some junk off flea bay!!

    From what I've seen so far, the only "Dark Side" this guy is on is in the shadow of his keyboard.

    I bought one of those Chinese CDI units for about eleven buck, 'cause may be i'm a sucker. But it's a cheap experiment. Haven't installed it yet though. Idid put rim locks on the tires, with a half worn Pirelli MT43 on the back and a new cheap Shinko on the front. Oh, and a number plate.

    The biggest improvement that needs to be made is in my ability to ride it, like turning it where I want it to go. Tricky.

    I weighed the thing on a bathroom scales. Put the scales on a motorcycle jack and jacked it up under the bike. 215 lbs (with 3/4 tank of gas).

    That's 97.5kg - I weighed my TLR200 at 87kg, that's 191lbs. So the alloy stuff on the TLR200 is worth 10kg or about 25lbs.

    I was surprised when a Taiwan made carb, fitted TLR perfectly, and needed no jetting changes whatever. These carbs are available from Shedworks in the UK, who I understand have sold 100s of them! Chinese 5 pin CDI units need wiring connectors altered to fit the TLR loom, so are not a straight bolt on change like the carbs, but do improve running a great deal over the OE units.

    Taiwanese carbs, blah blah blah, Chinese CDIs, blah blah blah. We're still waiting for you to step up and prove you are something other than a Troll hiding behind a keyboard.

    By the look of your TLR, you have little or no interest in trying to make it work better, so cant really see why you are concerned with cheap and effective alterations which improve the bikes tremendously? No problem with that at all, but as the stock bikes are so poor, a fair few owners are interested in improving them, and thats the reason for my outlining a few simple alterations on here.

    `There is no real need to alter the head angle if you are riding easier events..............essentially an Ebay Mikuni pit bike carb, modified stock air box, and a less restrictive exhaust will make a great deal of difference to a stock bike, and cost less than a pair of new tyres.`
    This was a Twinshocker quote from last year. He has changed from ebay to a reputable source in the uk. But cheap, no.

    No worries, almost done.




    Still no pics or proof of your abilities, but another cheap shot lobbed at my expense, eh? I think I (or more to the point YOU) have proved my point. Good job. :thumb


    Methinks I'll go ride my bike today since it, you know, runs and exists and all. I've grown weary of letting this Troll get under my skin, so it's time for some Cycletherapy that only true members of The Dark Side can enjoy. [​IMG]



    NOW I'm done, Nev. :D

    The Taiwan carbs are available from Ebay, and I think cost something like $27. But those sold by Paul are 100% guaranteed to work properly, so for most people the Shedworks carb is the one to choose.

    Anyone who can MIG weld, and has around $100 to spare, can make a stock TLR a great deal better, and I have outlined various ways of going about this in several previous posts.

    Since I had carpal tunnel surgery last week I have'nt done nothing but kick the tires and study how I'm going to change front end angle on the ol TL250, has anyone ever seen online articles about doing this modification? ??
