Whose carbs was I buying?

Post by Cloud. on Sat 11 May 2013 - 15:08

On the old forum someone was selling a pair of GT125 carbs.

I wanted them, but didn't get chance to seal the deal before the old forum "did a Yamaha" and stopped working.

Who was selling them?

I was selling some gt125r carbs off a 07. They work fine, a bit mucky on the outside and need a clean and there are no choke pins but for £40 they are a good price to say a set of ones new will cost a grand and some ones that are more or less mint are on the upwards of £200. I was mainly selling them for the internal parts if you are wanting to strip them.

I was also selling the front tyre and the rear seat.

Ah.
The reason I need new carbs is that my choke rail/pins are broken. So nothing gained by buying an extra pair with the same problem.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly though. The photos you've uploaded have been useful in an "aaaah! that's where that little spring came from!" kind of way.

HAHAHA Very Happy No worries pal. Back into the box they go. It was one of the few MAJOR flaws with the carby hyosungs. There choke pins were shite.

Thats why I was selling them mainley for internal parts. Everything on them is fine apart from the bloody choke pins.

I'm considering EFI for the 125.

I know I'll need the throttle bodies, manifolds, and injectors, as well as the injector control/management unit and relevant hoses. But will the heads need any modification? Does it have a sensor in the exhaust?
What else should I consider?

Thanks.

Dont know about modifying the heads. And yep the exhaust does have a sensor on it but unsure if there is one or two. I think there might be more to it than hoses and manis and throttle boddies. You might need the elecys and bits and bats like the AIS and other related engine bits and bats. You would have to do some serious research.

I'm guessing it's easier to convert a 250 to carbs than to convert a 125 to injection?

Sort of. If you have the 125 it would be easier to put a 250 carby in than convert it to a 125 EFI. If you have a carby 125 then all you need is a 250 engine, carbs, chain and sprocket and you are more or less done.

Plus you get more power.

It's all about reliability.

If I want some quick speed, I have my other bike. The Hyosung's job is to ease the burden of worry that I wont make it, anywhere.

I would personally say that carbs are more reliable than EFI. With carbs it is all mecanical and hyo carbs are made by one of the worlds best carb manufacturers. With EFI there lots of factors that can go wrong like elecys and such.
When carbs fail take em off and you can find the problem easy with EFI you have to many factors that can cause a failure.
