What sort of bike do you have it on, I must say the quality is not the same as a Mikuni or Keihen!!!

In a way I'll agree with Eagle....The carb is not as well cast as the Keihin...The metal surface and edges are a little rougher and not as polished.

But I think the OKO is a real improvement on the Keihin in a number of areas. Particularly when it comes to air venting and fuel overflow. And it weighs less too. And to be honest, I don't give a stuff how rough the metal is.....so long as the performance is good. :thumb:

Sorry but I must congratulate OKO for a bloody good copy =D>

Best of balance.

that's very interesting because we have found the opposite regarding the casting finish. Overall it is smoother finish than other brands but I take your point, there are one or two external areas that could be cleaned up better after the casting process.

By the way, we have new model roundslide OKOs available:

OKO 3000 - Now available in 28mm! Popular choice for classics and post classic trials bikes! Price to be confirmed..

OKO 3005 - Large bore roundslide - available in 32, 34, 36, 38 and 40mm! We have finally crumpled under the demand for a larger bore model roundslide - popular choice for large capacity single cylinder thumpers, classic motocross etc. Prices to be confirmed..
