    I am thinking about getting a new carb, performance one, my motor is stock and i think the first thing i should get is a Carby. I am trying to figure out what is the best carb to get for my motor? I have a 125cc

    Sweet, I am wondering with the OKO Flatside carb will it bolt rite up to my stock mani? Or do i have to buy a different kind of mani for it?

    I am also wondering is it real hard to tune getting the jets and everything rite? My bike is completely stock just has a UNI air filter rite now. Will i notice any gains from the carb? I was reading it said top end and mid-range but i was wondering if that is true.

    Is the PE24 or the VM26 a good carb? I seen that they are cheaper

    The current carb i am using now is the stock one.. PZ19

    Are you sure it is better? What all did you notice when you put the oko 26mm on?

    Also will i need to buy a jet kit or will the stock jet be fine?

    Thought so, What kind of jets will i need? Low or High

    The stock jet will not be good enough?

    you will need to buy jets for sure. You get the rubber adaptor for the oko that should bolt up to your manifold. You may need to do a bit of a port matching

    Oh so i will need a rubber adapter + Jets if i get the oko 26mm

    So the VM26 is not a good carb? Because they are cheaper in price

    Hey, so i got a stock 125 aswell and am currently looking at getting a new carbi for it. Mainly because my stock one is useless. anyways ive been looking into the OKO's heaps and was about to get a 26mm flatside from DHZ OKO 26mm FlateSlide Race Carby Kit buuut i just read that they rnt as good for like trail riding and such which i tend to do alot of. would it still work good or should i look into maybe the Mikuni 26mm from DHZ.

    thanks
