TL125 Carb types?

Postby licondam » Mon Apr 01, 2019 7:46 pm

Help me solve this mystery. I bought a new Carb Reco kit from IOCON LTD UK (it's a Cotton branded part No. 251353805147) -advertised as correct for a: TL125E (England) '73-75.
But it's for a different carb to my (Oz) '74 TL125E K1 model, for example the throttle needle length on my carb is approx 43mm long, but the one in the kit is approx 58mm long.
My carb is the original one -correct for the year and Oz delivery. I know the later 'S' Model had a different carb, certainly diff jetting. I'm wondering if UK models had different carbs to Oz models in '74.

Shed any light?

Can't actually shed any light mate, other than to say I fell into the same trap, -I bought the 'Cotton' branded TL125 Carb re-co kit labelled "TL 125E England 1973-1975" only to find it's for as different carb.

I think it's quite possible that the '74 TL 125E England carb was different to the '74 Aussie carb. Mine's a '74 bike like yours, but the kit is wrong.

(Anyone want my re-co kit?! I assume It would fit the 'S' model).
