I have the BBR carb and it is a PD97, as far as I know all the XR200 carbs were more or less the same. On the sheet that came with my carb it says as a starting point, to use a #118 main and a #42 pilot with the needle clip in the 3rd position for the big bore kit. Not sure if the BBR uses the same needle as the stock XR200 carb though so you may have to do some jetting to get it dialed in. Hope that helps!

Haha, ya it's kinda nice to have a site where a person can swap info and such, sure saves a lot of time [and money lol!] Yes, my BBR Keihin 26mm also measures 28mm at the engine side opening, Inside where the slide is it gets smaller and becomes oval shaped. The Keihin carb requires the BBR adapter to mate it to the TTR intake so I would suspect that may be why it's more expensive. I got my BBR carb from Procycle http://www.procycle.us/bikepages/10-ttr125-holiday-spcls.html for $279.99 that also included an air filter and extra main and pilot jets. I don't have any experience with the 26mm Mikuni but I do like the idea that it's cheaper :thumbsup:

Thanks again for the help the bike was fast enough to get second in the 100 - 160 TT race hopefully now i will have enough to catch that CR150. I'm not exactly light at 212 pounds should i be gentle jumping it till i can afford a frame cradle?

I wonder why BBR likes the Keihin 26mm over the Mikuni 26mm ?

Good question, I really don't know the answer, I believe they do have the Mikuni available for other makes/models. :thinking:

I haven't had any issues with mine but I primarily use it for super moto, however according to the many people who do jump them, a frame cradle would be a good idea. Great job on the 2nd place, not too shabby for someone who weights more than their bike lol! :cheers:

Well the decision was made easy BBR is a great company but they were out of the Keihin carb kits so my local shop Petes Cycle and Sled told me to call Carburetor Parts Warehouse they are building me a VM 26 specifically for my bike and mods. The kit comes with a throttle, a cable and extra jets. They sound very knowledgeable i will let everyone know how it runs it should be in on Friday.

Nice, I'm looking forward to hearing how it works! You better start making some room to put all the new trophies you're going to be winning!

Hopefully we can have a good run the 100 to 160 class in flat track and TT racing draws 15 to 20 bikes and is the most wild race of the night.
