Just an update.
The bike rides and I've ridden it for about 50km so far.
Just want to post some pictures of the homemade carburetor solution I made. The stock NT carburetor is such bad design, the part that connects to the manifold anyways.
Having no spare carburetors in Kenya and most sites not shipping to Africa meant I had to come up with a solution myself.
I welded a clamp that clamps behind the carburetor and connects to the manifold. I put a rubber gasket in between to prevent any air from escaping. I also have a fiber gasket, but the black rubber one seems better. Anyone have any advise on what gasket to use? More people should be having problems with their carburetor/manifold connection I imagine. Some pics of my carburetor solution.
I put the needle ring to leaner, but still as soon as I disengage the engine it revs much higher than when it is engaged. Any ideas on this?
Here's a photo of the finished bike in the sun.
What's left is the chain guard, and a better kill switch.
