QT50 easy for beginner October 28, 2018
taco eater : John Swift from Bend, OR United States  
so far so good.  i had issues trying to get the throttle cable length right at first....  idle was waaayyyy too high..  this is my first time actually having to make mess around with cable length.  I had the throttle cable in the wrong position in the cable junction box because i removed the oil pump and cable.  after i realized i was stupid, it works great and is super easy to adjust, even for a beginner.

Slapped this on my stock 2013 ST, fit perfectly. Thing eats gas and air now like crazy! Just ordered a pipe and the 70 kit. Can't wait to see what it does after that!

Bought this for my garelli with a polini kit and matching intake and it helped out and looks really good while doing it, I suggest you get this.

Awesome but fragile June 7, 2015

Super easy to tune. Breaks at the clamp as others have mentioned. This will be my third carb due to breaking. But I just can't get enough!

Buy it! June 5, 2015
taco eater : Matt from Boulder, CO United States  
So I port matched a Mikuni VM18 & MLM intake onto a 1978 Puch 2hp High Torque cylinder I had lying around and HOLY SHIT! This thing is so damn beast! I need a better pipe than a Tecno Circuit to unleash it's true power, but ill get one soon enough. Can't wait to throw one of these on my Maxi and next Hobbit build!
