Sachs Bing Part Numbers
Sachs mopeds use a square Bing carburetor which differs slightly (other than the shape, obviously) from the round (Puch) Bing. Please note that SQUARE BING JETS ARE NOT THE SAME SIZE AS ROUND BING JETS. Square Bing jets are considered to be rare and hard-to-find. Most people get around this obstacle with one of the following options:
- Substitute a round Bing for the square Bing (may require some modification to work)
- Drill the jets by hand
See this thread for more info and comparisons between the Puch and Sachs Bing carbs.
- Stock on restricted 25mph Sachs models, generally accompanied by a small exhaust header pipe. Main jet #50
- Stock on nearly all Sachs 504 and 505 motors; Westlake, Balboa, Hercules, etc. Main jet #52
- Stock on certain 505 D cylinders; Generally Balboa's; rare. Known for its lack of throttle needle, and improved performance. Main jet #58
- Infamous for existing, but virtually unheard of on U.S. market bikes. Extremely rare.
Solo Bing Carburetor
1/10/112 Type SRB
- This is the only carburetor used on the US imported Solo's. It has both a spin off bowl and slide cover. similar to some "race style" motorcycle carburetors. It's small 10mm bore limits it's usefulness for performance applications. This same carburetor was sold from the factory bored out to 11mm. A 12mm bore is safe as well. Anything over 12mm will result in the fuel bowl vent circuit to become exposed. This can be fixed with epoxy. Theoretically it could be bored to a 14mm, although the slide it self is only 14.5mm and leakage of air around the slide would be likely.
Stock Main Jet #44-021/58
- This is the same jet as the one used on the common Puch bing carburetor. An entire range of larger jets are available.
Stock Needle #46-031
- This is the only needle produced for this carb.
Stock Needle Jet ## 45-141/2.12
- A range of sizes are still available.

Setting Bing Float Height
To properly set the float level remove the float bowl and invert the carburetor. The float is properly ad- justed when the top edge of the float is parallel with the gasket surface of the float bowl on the car- buretor body. This setting is very important and should always be checked when mixture problems are encountered.
