Has anybody tried a bigger Mikuni carb on their TTR 125? I'm thinking of a 26mm one.

Has anybody tried a remote reservior early YZ80 (F or G model (?)) shock?

Bike is 125cc, BBR springs, BBR pipe, lightened flywheel, Powroll cam ..... melted VISA! Used for MX by 14yo.

Works performance makes shocks for lots of stuff. They have remote resevoir shocks for XR100s. http://www.worksperformance.com/main.html

Their web site doesn't list a TTR125 shock but it is a fairly new model. Contact them, they might just have one that fits.

Kalitude. Like your pages!

Do they run the standard tube from the carb to airbox or use a sock type airfilter? I'm tracking down a XR200 carb but have stacks of needles and jets for Mikunis which will make jetting easier for me.

I await your info from Engines Only.

Carb Parts Warehouse sells a 28mm flatslide kit for the TT-R 125.

Running a 28mm carb on a stock TTR cylinder head with the stock cam is a pretty BAD IDEA. The carb to port area ratio doesn't work with a carb this big unless you get the cylinder head to breathe. A 24mm carb is pushing it with the stock setup, a 28mm carb is just a mis-match looking for a place to happen :)

I suspected as much. I guess I could have mentioned it. :)
I think I read somewhere that BBR is running a 26mm carb. Of course, that's along with a more aggressive cam and head work.

I thought that the XR 200 carb was bigger than 24 mm but I just thought that. I used a 24mm Mikuni on a 95cc XR 80 with cam etc but no head work and it flew. I have a 28mm Mikuni and a 26 mm so I will try the 26mm first.

I'm in Australia and USA parts are wow expensive as our $ only buys 49 US cents. The VISA is still smoking from the last order!
