Re: mikuni 22mm carb setup masai db125h

Ok thanks I've took the jets off and the big one with the screw looks like it says 95 and the small one says 15 too low I'm guessing

Top one is not a real VM22. It's so called "genuine VM22" by many pit bike parts suppliers. Bottom one is a real VM22 which you can find on mikuni website. I have to admit that chinese made a very good carb for money and even use genuine mikuni jets. It works very well. I just bought one myself.
You need 17.5 pilot and 107.5 to 112.5 main depending on your 125 engine setup.
