      Gt125R

      I’m after some help/ advice. Bought a project 2016 GT125R in Feb. Turned out the engine was goosed ( found oil pump teeth sheered off and so was ran with no oil pump 😖) Sourced a running 2nd hand engine. Fitted engine along with upgrade fuel filter, fuel pipes, vacuum pipes and EGR blank. Turns out wiring loom was also bodged/ rotten so that was replaced along with the airbox and starter solenoid. It now starts! But will only start with choke on and with throttle twisted a bit whilst pressing start button. Smokes a bit and smells like it’s over fuelling. BUT if choke turned off it wont start or run. Does it sound like the carb needs overhauling? It also has a full black widow exhaust but not sure if been upjetted etc. Bike had been sat about 8months. If a carb overhaul and new jeta is needed what sort of price is this to have done?

      Pull the carbs, remove every jet, blow carb cleaner through all the ports. Pilot jets are probably cheesed up as they have the smallest orifices.

      Definitely fuel problems, the carbs really need stripping & ultrasonic cleaning.
