The Jawa comes typically with a [[Jikov]] 12mm [[carburetor]]. Though this unit is an efficient design, the lack replacement parts will be a limiting factor, particularly in the area of [[jet]]s. The answer to this problem is one of the simpler things to improve. A [[Puch]] [[E50]] intake can be modified to fit by grinding down the base, then grinding away the sides of the pipe above the base to allow room for the screws. This can be done easily with a bench grinder and maybe a drill to re-position the mounting holes if need be. The end result is a very standard intake allowing one to choose between a wide variety of carburetors. Many have chosen to run a larger intake and a [[Dellorto]] SHA 15.15 on this setup. The Jawa runs well with SHA carburetors and can be tuned to not only perform nice on the top end but also idle beautifully.

The answer to this problem is one of the simpler things to improve. A [[Puch]] [[E50]] intake can be modified to fit by using a spare cork riser and widening the mounting holes a few millimeters inwards. The end result is a very standard intake allowing one to choose between a wide variety of carburetors. A 14 mm square intake will match the cork risers and intake port perfectly.  Many have chosen to run a larger intake and a [[Dellorto]] SHA 15.15 on this setup.
