Does anybody remember these? They were used on Yamaha trail bikes, Bultaco trials and the like up to the early 90's, and for good reason: bloody pieces of junk they were. Laugh

Anyway, they were used until recently on brushcutters and other agri/forestry engines and I have the misfortune of having one sitting in my shop which is driving me insane. Well, more insane than usual.
I had to order some specific tools just to open it and clean it up (a little over £10, but I had to look for that stuff over the hills and far away) and yet it still behaves in a way I've never seen a carburetor behave before.

To cut a long story short, if the next bath in carburetor cleaner doesn't work its likely the bloody thing needs a rebuild kit. It's still available from the engine manufacturer and costs an eye watering €60. eek The most amazing thing is that an extra €30 will buy an original carburetor, ready to go. Teikei sold exactly the same kit under their own name but for much less and that's what I am after. Too bad it's apparently as common as hen teeth.

If you happen upon a Teikei TK-5 rebuild kit, let me know. It could really save my day. Thumbs Up
