Nah nothing wrong with them, just checking you ordered the right ones.
They might have needed a signature to drop off your mail, sent registered post maybe ?


That breather that was fitted between the air filter and crankcase is just to keep down emissions.
It's fine to run the breather hose down under the swingarm.


It's a little tricky lengthening a chain without a proper chain link tool, but it can be done, you need a pin punch which is a touch smaller than then pins holding the links in.
And make sure you do it on a something solid, like on top of a workshop vise, only open the vise enough for the pin to push through as you tap it out.

Yeah dude, they wouldnt leave them here unless someone was home, i was in the garage doing the bike so i never heard no one nor did anyone come to my door to leave the package lol but it came tonight cause i got it redelivered by the USPS which is **** SLOW! lol but there here anyways, there lovely pieces nice and heavy duty i love them and i didnt even tighten them i just tightend with my hands and thats it, i got the bike running again and the oil seems to be fine, i hope theres not too much in there but i used about 3 quarters of the bottle (no more left as i topped it up when i first bought the bike) so i hope thats okay to run on, no smoke coming from engine/exhaust or anywhere so thats good and no weird noises, im going to try and adjust the valves again and see if it messes up again if so then just back to standard again.. what i think it may be is the throttle needle, when i turned the bike on after playing/cleaning the carb tonight, the bike didnt wanna move, it bogged opon twisting throttle in gear and it wouldnt ride.. so i took the throttle off, placed the throttle needle to the fouth notch (theres 5) from bottom and the bog went away, amazing how like 1mm can mess with the performance of your bike, but i was wondering, if i set the valves to perhaps hmm... .004inlet & .006 exhaust and moved the throttle needle up to the second from 1sr (top) would it work good?...


what is yalls valves set at (if you have 125ccs/140s) and what setting is yalls needles on? :)

thanks for the whole walkthrough,pictures and advice through out this past few days, i reallllyyy appreciate it guys & girls if any! :D thanks for sticking with me on this! im gonna print all the info through-out this thread and keep it for future purposes!!!

The Mikuni 22's on a 125cc with a #20 Pilot jet, #95 Main jet
some have been a touch rich still, and yeah second notch down from the top is enough to lean them out a little.
The 5 notch's are for fine tuning the main jet, did you notice if your carby still has the Nylon washer in the slide, where the needle goes though?
Some people forget to refit it and the bike starts running a touch lean after they've played with it


Adjusting the valves to a have a bigger clearance will lose a bit of power (eg adjusting them from .003" In, .004" Ex up to .004" In, 006" Ex)
As the valves wont open as much, and can't get as much fuel in or out.

I get mine from China.
That Pilot jet (#20) i linked you to before were only $4 ea in a post above.

You dont need a bigger main jet, especially if you have the clip on the second notch down on the needle.
That is a step leaner on you #95 main jet.

No the #25 pilot jet will be too big as well, going from a #15 to a #25 is 3 sizes up.
A #17.5 would be a touch better, but the #20 would be spot on i'm sure.
Ring TBolt im sure they'd sell you a #20 , they just might not list it.

If that's the Pilot jets then they are the wrong type
You need VM28/486 Pilot jets, the ones that are pictured in that TBolt/Amazon link suit the genuine VM26, your's is a china copy of a Mikuni.
Your Pilot jet is 28mm long, like the ones i linked earlier.

You don't have a VM26, your carby is a Mikuni copy 22/26


No, that manifold spinner has a too small I/D it's 22mm, your carby and manifold are 26mm.
I linked the correct Manifold Spinner (27mm i/d) before in post #35.

This is what your jets look like in your carby-
