First build. Carb advice??

Hey. Ive recently started working on my first ever moped. 1980 maxi 2 speed. Have an airsal kit and a boss pipe. ( may swap out later). What size carb would you recommend? The original is pretty bad even after a thurough cleaning so i need to replace anyway?

Would appreciate any carb size/ brand recommendations.

I'd go 15mm bing.

Re: First build. Carb advice??

Yup for first build is do the same. Keep the slide, needle, clip, jet, atomizer, float pin etc from your original carb too

Probably Fred /

14mm bing will start easier and tune in easier then a 15mm, (a circuit or estroil type pipe is a must on a za50 so pitch the boss) metal mesh filter, around 72 jet, Flipped second gear clutch and new shift dampeners are must also,

Servicing and timing your magneto is a must also so read this completely

Re: First build. Carb advice??

I agree with roff just get a 14 Bing. But ditch the boss pipe. You want an estoril.

My old shit brown Magnum ran mid 40s with an airsal 14 Bing and estoril.. flipped 2nd of course.

Shift pucks! Shift pucks! Shift pucks!
