Hi, was just wondering if anyone knows if this is any good ? I appreciate that its cheap and you get what you pay for... but im just starting out and want the bike running before I spend lots. Any help will be appreciated. Cheers, Andrew.

That was just the carb I think, just cause this one comes as a package thought it might save some hassle, thanks.

Hi, the problem with the the one above is the filter can be a tight fit between the carb and rear mudguard which will most likely need cutting down. A bit more hassle for you?

Ah I see, I've just realised there was a link for a filter seperate to the carb, however, id rather have a cone filter... if theyres a cone filter what would fit that carb that would be ideal ! Thanks.

What mm does the filter need to be. Petrol scooter have cheap filters. I think your being too picky. U said u want it running so take the advice from these other experienced members that have been here for a while and started where u are now.

Or buy a sha 14/14 for 70 and put whatever filter u like on :) :) just joking. I ran a black air box for a while and so did the previous owner of the bike. Had no troubles

Now am just taking a punt at this but if you upgrade to cone filter then would you up jet the carb?
More air (free flowing air) needs more petrol??
Thinking on the same terms as road bikes.
