Just found this carb on line for $68 bucks. It's 26mm. Wondering if anybody has any experience with these carbs?? I only read about stock carbs, Mikuni and Tillotsons on here.

Here's another pic.

I think Nibbi makes a CVK knockoff and a PWK knockoff?
There are threads about the Nibbi carbs, at least on some other forums.

I am currently using the PWK 24mm knockoff by OKO or KOSO and really like it so far.
The OKO is like $25-$30, not sure the quality difference between the OKO and the Nibbi.

Where did you get this from?
Do they have common parts for gaskets and such??

As far as parts... I dunno? Maybe Keihin Parts. I think it is a Keihin knockoff? Maybe not? The waters are too deep here. I don't feel comfortable. I know very little about these carbs.

I looked that up... The .COM address is American, and subsequently they won't ship here to Canada....
So looking at the amazon.ca site... Of course... Hmmmm...would it be around the same price???... Naaaa were going to charge around $180 plus ship.... That will be more fun....

They have a few others a bit cheaper... But overall expensive...

Did you search around on ebay.ca?

This one says 30mm, but not sure if the venturi is smaller.
An ebay VM22 26mm Carb has a 22mm venturi and 26mm ID opening on the engine side
https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Universal-Ra....c100005.m1851

Here's one from Aliexpress.
Says PE24mm carb.

I think it is a Keihin PE carb Knockoff.

So search PE26 carb or whatever. You should be able to come across some.

Some good info here
http://www.dansgaragetalk.com/topic/...jetting-chart/

NIBBI PE
PE26mm - 45 low, 115 main, 33mm OD (26mm ID) output spout, 48mm Air Filter

NIBBI PWK
PWK26mm - 38 low, 110 main, 35mm OD (26mm ID) output spout, 49.5mm Air Filter

NIBBI CVK
CVK26mm - 40 low, 112 main, 34mm OD (26mm ID) output spout, 43mm Air Filter

http://www.dansgaragetalk.com/topic/...k-vs-pwk-carb/

Im thinking about trying out a nibbi PWK style carb. Just wondering if anyone has used one and any feed back they may input. I live in AZ were its usually not a big change in humidity, and not many hills. Also whats the difference with the PWK and PE? I read the carb post but still confused if the CVK and PWK jets are interchangeable for the 24 or 26? Carbs are my biggest challenge still, untill i start messing with CVT next. :smile:

or fuel injection? thats thought is still in my mind, but i think the expense may not be worth the trouble.



Blk8wdw covered it pretty well. < --- Verified NIBBI owner.

What I have discovered, PE style carburetors a pretty good carbs for things like Go-Karts and ATV's... PWK's have a great throttle response.... A lot of racers use PWK's on motorcycles because you need to shift gears and stuff and they want that fuel there when she's switching between gears... <--- This goes back to that great throttle responsiveness.

Scooters and Mopeds that have CVT's and require no shifting, may find the nice and smooth, linear response of a CVK very well suited to their scoots (even on scoots with race engines). CVK get a really bad rap because they're not the most durable of creations and foul out pretty easily.

In the end, it's going to boil down to personal taste and what you're hoping to accomplish.... A general consensus I have learned is people prefer the PWK's when doing an upgrade.

A PWK or PE does require a new throttle cable and in some cases, a new throttle tube assembly... I do sell a whole kit, but I have discovered some of the ducting is useless in the kit and may require finding a different air ducting solution... (To be specific, I am talking about hooking up the air intake filter to the carb using the supplied duct)

If you ever become interested, Signing up for paypal requires you to link a Credit Card or Bank Account. If you link a Credit Card, paying with paypal is just like using that credit card. If you link to a bank account - paying with paypal is just like using a debit card.

Actually I think I still have one, not entirely sure... But I know they changed a few things in the last year... So I think my account might have been nullified... Overall wasnt happy it took a week to get money in there in the first place...
After that I said F-it...
I'll use a credit card..
