    Hyosung Carb 250 125 GT GV Pilot Jets Main Jet

    How to swap Carb Main Jets on Hyosung 125/250cc v-Twins


    Carb Main Jets one of the most common upgrades to do on these 125/250 carby twins.   This tutorial will show you how to swap carb main jets the easy way.  #SwapNGo!

    First things 1st, if your bike has warranty, consult your dealer before attempting this. This may void warranty on new bikes.

    Anyway, Let’s cut to the chase!


    0. The tools required:
    – Large Mole Grips  (& a small one too)
    – Philips (+) Star screwdriver – Regular Length
    – Philips (+) Star screwdriver  – STUBBY LENGTH (Shortie)
    – A small amount of cooking oil
    – Hex Bits (& screwdriver Bit)  (if you have stainless bolts on the carbs)
    – 10 or 12mm Spanner or Socket Tool.
    – Flat-Head ( – ) screwdriver

     

    1. Whenever you’re ready, unscrew the bolts that hold the side-panels of your bike. Then take off your fairings!

    Owners of Naked Bikes = Skip to #2.  (GT Comet)

    Tip for GTR Owners  = Place a rug under the bike,  and when your fairings drop to the floor as “ONE piece”.  Carefully push one side under the bike, so the whole “one piece” can come out safely off the bike.   One Piece means “left/Right Side Panels & Middle Engine fairing attached as one.”

     

    2.  Get the tank off the bike next…
    * Unscrew #10 (fuel tank bolt) pictured below & lift up the tank “slightly up” so you can see the fuel pipes.
    * Disconnect the fuel pipe safely from under your tank  (marked in red circle!)
    * Don’t forget to also disconnect the “small” vacuum-air hose that is also attached to the tap
    (Some GT Naked bikes use a manual tap on/off Tap instead of a vacuum fed tap)
    *
    When the pipes are off,  remove the whole tank away from the frame. 
    (Watch out for item #3 – These rubber things fall out sometimes)
    (Save Picture to device to view it much larger)

    3.  Loosen the airbox clamps
    On the LEFT side of your bike, directly under the airbox.  Grab a stubby/shorty (+) screwdriver and unscrew loose the 2x clamps on each side of the carb.
    They are marked in the red arrow as reference.  They are black in colour.
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

    4. Remove the airbox away from the bike.
    Take your airbox off & put it aside for now.  Jump to #5 next.
    * Don’t forget to remove the 2 bolts holding the airbox to the frame!
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

    5.  Your bike should now be exposed like this…
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

    6.  Next up, let’s loosen the rubber intake clamps…
    On the red arrows pointed -> unscrew loose the clamps holding the carburetors down.
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

     

    7. Lift up your carbs out of the intake boots   (just a little!)
    Yes leave everything still connected (cables & pipes)
    We still have to drain the fuel out , so jump to #8
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

    8. Get a bowl & do this on a VENTILATED area or outdoors! (Fuel Vapor)
    * On the red arrows , unscrew these 2 bolts about half-way out.
    * Fuel will start dripping down the small pipes under the bolts
    (fuel is draining out)
    * Grab a bowl or bucket and capture the fuel  (watch for spillls!)
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

     

    9. When the fuel is drained completely…
    UnHook the idle-screw adjuster.

    * On the left side of your engine, there is a black “hand” screw that controls idle speed.
    * Unscrew the STEEL bolt that holds it down  (Look at red circle picture)

    GT Comet Owners = Skip to #10.
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

    10. Phew…. Let’s remove the float bowls now!
    You can do this SIDEWAYS  or  FLIP the carbs over a bit, as pictured below…
    Remove the 8 screws that hold the float bowls down.
    * Be warned! = Some original screws can be harder to unscrew loose. So be ready to use some force!
    * To be honest,  Mikuni should really start using stainless bolts anyway!

     

    11. Struggling?  Grab a pair of mole grips!
    * When a screw is being difficult to remove with a screwdriver.
    * Adjust your mole grips to bite a small bolt head
    * Make sure it’s strong enough , so it’s doesn’t slip!
    * Bite the bolt head –> Turn left. It should squeek loose.
    * When the “bolt” is loose, use your original screwdriver to remove the bolt entirely.
    * * * It’s common for these carbs sometimes to have rusty looking screws.  * * *
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

     

    12. Finally,  we get to the real thing.  Your carb’s undersides should be exposed now!
    * Next  up , get your “Upgraded” Jets ready!
    * Take a 5 min break!
    * You are going to swap your standard carb main jets jets for the bigger ones.
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

     Information On Carb Main Jets 
    Depending on which model 125/250 v-twin , it is important to remember these points:
    * Stock GT125 / GT125R & RC = 87.5 Front Main Jet & 90.0 Rear Main Jet
    * Stock GT250 / GT250R = 92.5 Front Main Jet & 95 Rear Main Jet
    * Stock GV125 Aquila = 87.5 Front Main Jet & 87.5 Rear Main Jet
    * Stock GV250 Aquila = 90.0 Front Main Jet & 87.5 Rear Main Jet

    All 125 vTwins = Size 15 Pilot Jets (Front & Rear) = Don’t change it.
    All 250 vTwins = Size 20 Pilot Jets (Front & Rear) = Don’t change it.

    • If you change exhaust pipes to “free-flowing” (aka. stainless pipes/straight through) = Then it is even more necessary to upJet the v -twin carb main jets.
      If you have an aftermarket Air Filter such as “K&N” =  You also need to upJet
      (more air = more fuel!)

     

    13.  Ready? Let’s upgrade!
    Swap the front & rear carb main jets for one size up each.

    GT125/GT125R = Upgrade to 90 FRONT  & 92.5 REAR
    GT250/GT250R = Upgrade to 95 FRONT & 97.5 REAR
    or
    GT250/250R = 95 & 95    ( For Aquila 125/250 = One Size Up each. )
    * Okay, see the red circles ?
    * Unscrew each jet  & replace them with a bigger one.
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

     

     

    14. Double check that the jets are secure & tight before closing up!
    * Take note! – These jets are brass, so don’t over-tighten them!
    * Make sure your carb is also clean from any visible dirt or dust particles.
    * The Jet Holes are very tiny! …(So a clean area is a must)
    * A Carb Cleaner helps clean up old carb parts & carb main jets !
    [Tutorial] Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

    15.  Grab some cooking oil (or old motor oil)
    * Drop a “SMALL AMOUNT” of oil on your FINGERS
    * Use your fingers to SLIDE OVER the black gaskets…
    * Keep doing this until both gaskets have a nice coat of oil-film over them.

    16. All done?  Time to close everything up,
    ^ let’s do things in reverse now ^  #12 -> #1…  

    Start from #12 going back to #1  –  Always double check each step you take!
    Fit all your parts back together.

     

     

    17. In the end , this should be the final outcome
    [Tutorial] Carb Main Jets Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets [Tutorial] Carb Main Jets Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

    18. Install the Fuel-Tank (& also connect pipes!)
    * Also, check that all screws are nice & secured  such as:  2x Intake Rubber Clamps, 2x Airbox Clamps, Carb-Float Bowl Screws & 2x Carb-Fuel Drain screw closed up too.
    * Inspect your throttle cable (Twist your throttle grip to test!)
    * Ensure your Choke Line is working   (Test your choke = The carb  will slide its choke rail!)
    * Check your fuel drain cable is AWAY from the engine  (zip tie to frame & let it point to ground)
    * Lastly,  make sure the “ENGINE IDLE” HAND-SCREW is also attached properly 

    [Tutorial] Carb Main Jets Hyosung GT & GT 125/250 - How to swap carburetor Jets

    19. You should now be ready to start!
    This quick ten second video was taken, while the bike was still cold & we swapped carb jets.
    This 125RC was only 600 miles old, no choke was used.

     

     

    20. Trouble starting? 
    * If it doesn’t start the first time around.  That means the fuel inside the carbs hasn’t reached “capacity” yet.
    * Put the CHOKE lever on max setting (towards YOU)
    * Then Crank the bike for about 5-7 seconds (while TWISTING the throttle a few times).
    * Then it should fire in to life.   Let it idle for few mins to burn off any excess fuel that could have made the spark plugs wet.

    Still got some trouble? Get a can of Bradex EASY START – Spray lots of it inside your air filter hole. Now crank the bike again & it should fire this time round!

    Hi, im New to motorbike mods and may seem like a noob question but where do you get the jets from because I’m seeing sellers asking to make sure there the right size as there all different, also looking on just eBay for k&n air filters it claims it makes no difference to a stock setup are they worth getting if I have ss pipes, thanks in advance

    If you can’t get Mikuni jets for your bike , just email me and I will find out for you.Do you know a local bike garage that keeps a stock of jets as the Mikuni brand is used on other bikes too. I always send out some bolts, ebc jets & filters to some who already have ss pipes.

    If you get jets from another source, be wary of cheap china brass as they gum up easily!
    Can be a nightmare cleaning them out haha.
    hyosung pilot jets gt125r

    K&N 650 filters push about 2/3x more air than stock.   In fact, the stock setup already needs bigger jets as the factory versions are too small.

    If you have SS pipes  or K&N Filter  (whichever comes first) ,  jets will need to be changed or there is a risk of overheating the rear or piston wall glazing.

    Take out your spark plug –  this colour below (coffee brown) means fuel / air / exhaust system is optimal.
    Center is “CREAM / BIEGE” in real life.
    ngk laser iridium plugs hyosung cr8e ix

    If its a pure white colour in the center, then it’s lean, which doesn’t help with the risks i mentioned above ^ ^

    If it’s sooty black = that means it’s rich, the fueling system needs cleaning (carbs in this case) or plugs / coils need inspecting or  it’s getting too much fuel with less air   (clogged filter)

    Hi I used your guide to clean my jets as the bike I have purchased had problems with idle and sluggish power. I presumed it was due to dirty carb. I took it apart found lot of dirt inside the float bowl and clogged jets. Cleaned it up a little bit, put everything together and bike does not start. I can see bit of leakage on the rubber intake , as seen on the pic below, but it is all correctly inserted into the rubber and the clamps are tigthened. What do I do to stop the leakage ? Is it the reason for the bike not starting?

    I think your “float bowl” gaskets are leaking  or the bowls aren’t screwed in tight (maybe one bolt is looser than rest)

    I’ve seen this happen a few times to some ,   usually you can drain the fuel again…then expose the carb bowls.

    Investigate the gaskets. If they look crushed or flat, they probably need replacing.

    Or re-tighten each bolt that is on the float bowl.

    A leak does prevent start ups.

    Also, i’d 100% recommend changing the oil as soon as possible , as any wet fuel pouring down the piston chamber, will mix with the oil , glaze the piston walls soon.

    The screws on the float bowl are bit rusty so I’ve tried not to damage them. I have ordered a new set of stainless steel screws from here and new orings for the floats from another shop. I will give it another try this weekend again and see if it helps. I will also replace the oil, even thou I just changed it before I started working on the carb 🙁 but I prefer to have a healthy engine 🙂 Thanks for the help, I will post the update once I replace all the parts.

    hello

    Very good information over here!

    I have a question.. how many turns, after all this mods, do you have at the pilot/air screws??

    big thanks

    big thanks

    Good question, but according to the manuals (which i agree with), is that the C/O (air fuel mix screws are usually pre-tuned at factory and must never be touch, hence they hide the gold screws with a rubber bung.

    The reason for that is also the front and rear engine don’t spark at the sametime, jetting is lager on one carb , then front etc.. so “usually” with these carbs on a 125-250cc type of bike would be about 2.75 – 3.5 turns out – more or less depending on jetting on carb too.

    The biggest hint = plugs will be coffee brown , that means stop there & the bike is all set.

    However, most mechs don’t always know this and i can’t be surprised when ignore the service manual warnings haha.

    Anyways, to put it short. The stock carbs don’t need that kind of tune. Only thing to do is uprate the jets (more fuel) = then add more air (better air filter) then its a happier bike.

    “Pilot Jets” don’t need replacing as they as good as they get on the 125 twins, only “extreme” tuning would require air fuel tuning or pilot jet swapping.

    Only Main Jets is what most of us all do with a K&N Filter – for a “plug n play” simple weekend!

    Stock machine = Upjet it anyway (the rear is a little cooler as fuel has a cooling effect) & should run a little better in 5th.

    Modded machine -> K&N Air Filter  or  Stainless Exhaust pipe or End CAN = upjetting mandatory ofcourse.  Modded bike ? = Baffle runs better with baffle in than without baffle on any 4T (& quieter anyway! 😉 )

    Laser or IX plugs help a lot.   If the plugs are “coffee brown”  the bike is happy!

    The stock ones are too sooty & a nightmare for UK winters, usually chuck em first thing lol.

    Hi Guys

    I’m looking to upgrade my main jets and do a carb rebuild at the same time. My GV125 had been stood around for sometime before i bought it, in saying that i got lucky getting it going but i know it needs attention very soon. I’m looking for the correct jet size and a rebuild kit for the carb’s. As well as this I’m after some tutorial on how best to remove the carb’s as it was a nightmare the last time i done this and don’t want to struggle unnecessarily. Its fitted with straight through ss exhaust also,  thanks in advance Shane

    Hey,
    If your local dealer doesn’t have genuine Mikuni jets / EBC ones ,   you may send me a message as I for sure keep a stock of older genuine (on ebay) & some new jets.
    I usually send jets with air filters on some custom orders.

    I have dealt with the GV bikes a few times, one thing is for sure:
    – Pilot Jets do not need upgrading at all.
    – Stock main jets are identical  (87.5 front / 87.5 rear)

    So a good upgrade commonly is the “90 Main Jet (Front)” and “92.5” (Rear)
    Ofcourse the rear is bigger as its the hottest engine, so a bit extra fuel at the back has a cooling effect & slight torque boost in 5th gear.

    If you head to Halfords or EuroCarParts – My fav cleaner for carbs is  WYNNS FUEL SYSTEM CLEANER – It’s a green can  , ofcourse any good carb cleaner will blast every hole clean.

    Also , i must stress a little here – The “STARTER JET”  (which can’t be removed) has a very very tiny hole , ensure you have a good carb cleaner.

    After the STARTER JET  (that big metal tube that you can’t remove) is cleaned up, your bike will start a LOT faster.

    Starting / Cranking  = Starter JET
    Slow Ride / Idle  = Pilot Jet/Main Jet
    Normal / fast Riding = Main jet.

    1 more thing.   Head over to poundland & get 3 cans of AIR DUSTER –  When the jets are dry , use the air duster to blow the holes clean.

    Use the air duster to blow everything inside the carb, after it has dried up from a carb cleaner liquid.

    A full clean will really do wonders to the bike. Good luck!

    Quick up date. I have stripped and rebuild my carbs, as I suspected there was a build up of crystallised fuel due to the bike standing for a long time. I replaced the stock main jets with 90 front 92.5 rear. Started the bike first time and much better then before, I let it worm up to clear sny cleaning solutions that may still be in the carb. Took the bike for a test ride but it feels like it’s not fueling correctly. As it splutters them revs back up as it should. I had to replace the fuel line as original lines where perishing, but the fuel line is a little to sma I think. Any ideas to what’s wrong. Everything was free and moving as it should on the carb before putting back on to the bike.

    Cheers shane

    – Pilots = affect idle and slow moving , so pilot jets should be clean
    – Spark Plug – Clean it , with that carb cleaner – it should spark better, if not IX or Lasers will wake it up better (& bog less under some load) – Stock plugs are just that woeful.
    – Fuel lines – Ofcourse, adding thicker high temp lines only add to “more fuel in the pipes = bigger hole” & “fuel is colder = less misting on hot temps, comes to carb as liquid than a misty hot gas)
    – Main Jets hopefully should be cleaned up too.
    – The “BLACK CV SLIDERS” are critical , they are the mother of the carbs , so you want to make sure they “retract” up & down fast without any delays – that means there is no particles stopping the Sliders moving when you add revs to the bike

    When you rev , they slide up – they must not delay whatsoever.

    Hope this info helps!

    I will change the fuel lines as that’s all I can think is coursing the problem, I have lx spark plugs fitted already. I like the style of the bike but it will be in parts for ever if it carriers on annoying me!

    So had another quick look at the bike, I took the air filter off so I could access the carb. I thought I would start it up just to see what it was like and in my opinion it ran better!? I also noticed some black bungs at the bottom of the carb, so removed them to reveal screw heads. What are these for? Also choke is working better with air filter removed. Do I have a mixture problem here? Any help would be appreciated

    Bungs hiding gold screws = Air / Fuel Mixture = Only the factory tunes that. Dealers are told not to touch it whatsoever , otherwise re-tuning is a serious abyss here. I agree with the koreans.

    If it runs better without a filter = Investigate air filter (clogged?) or spark plugs (glaze brown means they are healthy)

    Glaze brown plugs also mean = carb / filter / electrics are doing well.

    To increase mixture = Either add 1 step up from a factory main jet (90/92.5)

    Pilots remain size 15 each but must be clean = smooth rolling idle is dependent on pilot jets

    Again, investigate your black CV sliders on the carb
    Idle and revving up to 7k rpm etc = they slide up
    Dropping revs to idle = they slide down

    Particles on the slider will grind against the carb walls = certain rpms will be bouncy, certain rpms will be jerky –> carb sliders may be hanging

    Cleaning them fixes this.

    If the sliders are “retracting” fast & (as quick as your throttle moves) – they should be working on

    This clip will hint , why its critical the sliders work nicely … (idle , through gears , warming up)

     

    The real key to a free flowing bike is to attack these at once:
    Coils , Spark Plugs , Clogged Jets , slow retracting black tube sliders, good fuel pump working , air filter is new (PAPER FILTERS LAST 2-3K before they start to give you less air for carbs)
    5k would be pushing it.

    If its a fabric / cotton gauze filter – it generally is okay until approx 7-10k , the filter will hint how dirty it is.

    ———————

    “UNLESS” – Someone in the past ever messed up the mixture screws (which were hidden behind black bungs) , then it can explain cause not mixing air intake & petrol properly inside. Like i said, it would be an abyss to retune it back as Koreans never revealed the adjust settings, they do that before shipping the bike away. Depends on country & market its going to.

    So the home owner, may go through few spark plugs until its right (plug chopping business)

    But honestly, the spark plug colors will tell you how rich or lean the bike is.

    Thanks for the reply. I will look at the black sliders again tomorrow night. The bike was played with before I had it so it could be anyone of the faults you have mentioned.

    Cheers shane

    So checked the black sliders and they move freely, the bike will idle for a bit but runs uneven, revs up and down, then after a little but of time it just cuts out. I know this to be a common fault if the coil is breaking down. Do I start chucking money at it!?

    Probably,

    The bike still isn’t happy = Look at your own spark plugs , will tell you exactly if its electrical / fueling / or poor air system. (Rich vs Lean vs Poor Electric Sparking)

    Bike will not ride perfect unless all 3 work in tandem (air / fuel / sparking electrics)

    I would read my replies above ^ on this topic = write down as a list. tick off every single checkpoint.

    Fueling Parts & Carb OK & checked over? = then we are done with the carbs.

    Then the electrics or plugs would be your enemy , I would go here below …
    (GV125/Gt125 = same engine, same carb, same coils = same behavior)
    (Follow my replies in those threads, as i go quite deep on electric dramas & HOW to test them yourself)

    2. Another Topic Here

    3. And this one too!

    Yes,
    Faulty Coils & Regulators happen to all hyosungs. They are just a cheaply made parts that die out eventually. The japanese win when it comes to electrics.
    — > Could also explain your plugs not doing their job or otherwise fouled/annoyed

    Remember this always:
    High revs / RPM needle stuck high / very slow to drop revs down = Air Leaks (anything air flows thru) or CV sliders stuck or choke is not off (still on choke)

    Boggy / Jumpy Revs / Laggy = Electrics (inspect all including plugs , can’t stress spark plugs enough) or Fueling Drama (anything that petrol flows through)
