Why can't I find the correct carburetor?
« on: June 14, 2015, 12:32:26 PM »
I have a mid-2000s TGB Laser R5 49cc 2stroke (belt drive I believe) that needs a new carburetor.  The old one was a Mikuni that was in bad condition.  I ordered one but the air filter mount was way to big.  My air filter mount is about 30mm, with about a 22mm intake.  Anyone know where to find one that fits what I need.  I don't know much about engine terminology so don't go all techie on me.  Thanks, Daniel

yes TGB parts are pricey .
and sorry, no ,the only US distributor
never has parts i need and i have waited
up to  a year for them to get some items...
needless to say i don't do business with them

that being said all 2 cycle carbs are about the same
you need a  spigot mount carb 16mm/17mm
