Cheap XR200 carbs
« on: December 01, 2017, 12:33:12 AM »
After a carb for my std xr200A so has anyone found a Chinese replacement carb that works out of the box or do I save my money and buy a gen Honda carb that will cost me an arm and a leg?

OK is it one of those Chinese 30mm mikuni's or one that is a gen mikuni's from hattrick the Aussie mikuni dealer?All I'm trying to find out has anyone found a Chinese xr200 carb that works like the std carb out of the box on a std engine and if so do they have a link to eBay for it,simples!I hate riding thumpers with more flat spots then a 50 cent coin has it just takes the fun out of riding them!Been there done that with TT500's with 38mm carbs on them and harder to fire up cold then a gas Barbi on a windy day!

Must have needed sorting then, they are great when they're set up right.
A VM30 is around $130 and they will jet it for you.

You could try one of these. Listed for Honda TRX250 and others. Tried carbs from here for other stuff and they were ok.

For $38 delivered what could go wrong?

I of the guys over here has been running a oko d slide carb on his xl175 that he uses in both vmx & vinduro for years. They're cheap enough although the chinese knockoffs can vary a lot
