Default Re: Motorized black mamba roadster project in Kenya

Well I have managed to screw up the carburettor already! The guy at the shop told me to be careful and I was, but still something went wrong..

The manifold was too wide to fit into the carburettor and so I had to take some metal away with a veil. When carefully fitting it into the carburettor opening 3 of the 4 pieces of cast aluminium immediately broke of. Now only one is left and I'm never going to get the manifold tightly in place.

The design and quality of this Chinese carburettor really is the worst! It would've been better if I could have bolted the manifold to the carburettor the same way the manifold bolts to the engine. Now I have to go and find a replacement carburettor here in Kenya which'll be a challenge to say the least.

There are many Chinese 125cc motorcycles here, is there any way I can fit a motorcycle carburettor to my bicycle engine??

Pictures of the damaged carburettor will follow later.
