    They were a Suzuki thing right up through the early 90's at least can't remember others having them.

    although it looks like some yams had them too.

    The fuel tap rubber swelled up, its harder to turn and stopped dripping, fueled up the Xr200 for the 1st time in 16 years and that pissed out the tap for a bit to

    You can get replacement tap rubber from places like weemoto I'd guess but I've seen them locally too. The Honda taps are often riveted but that's not a show stopper. My RZ one leaked a bit but dropped a ball bearing in it and gave it a tap.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    I cannot find a needle valve for the carb, I tried lapping it in with metal polish then Jiff and also hammering the needle into the seat and also re cutting the seat

    Its a big old VM 28 SC Mikuni with septet rate floats

    overkill
    the only time i would ever use a hammer near a carb is to tap the side to seat the needle if it was leaking after the fuel was turned on.
    Most mikunis regardless of age ran similar needles.

    Yep I only tried tapping the needle into the seat as a last resort I removed the seat from the carb 1st.

    My carb has a screw in seat and the needle dosnt have the wire clip thing on the end, I might ditch this carb for a Chinese one

    Probably a cheap knock off, better off buy something complete from the Mikuni guys, they aren't that expensive, in saying that I bought what I later found out was a copy of a Keihen PWK and it works great but a lot of guys have had problems with them

    Made the number boards and used some old brake springs to mound the front of the exhaust, got a needle and seat for the carb but it was wrong so hope to have another next week, fitted a new DID chain, this is pretty much finished now, I think I will sell this and start another project, I really really want a mid 70s Kawasaki KX125 or a mid to late 70s Yamaha DT250, I would use this in a deal if you have something.

    Got the carb parts and got the carb adjusted, thing can get up and go now, power keeps coming, dosnt go flat like a stock exhaust. Gave everyone a good hours worth of 2 stroke sounds, everyone looks fucked off they think it’s ok to chainsaw all day and ride quads
