ronnielowe: Jetting sizes...I'm running a Px with a DR 180 kit, a T5 carb and a Simonina exhaust. The main jet "seems" fine at the moment (still running in at 40mph) but going down hill or coming off the throttle it sounds/feels likes she's miss-firing. Any thought??

danmc: I'm currently on the look out for a PX125. My first bike. And was wondering where the best place to pick one up may be other than fleabay, gumtree etc? Cheers guys.

sbwnik: T5 172... Unless you are an absolutely sh*t hot engineer, I'd not even consider trying. Oz (who built the only one) has built very successful racing engines at a much higher level than scooter racing, and destroyed around half a dozen T5 casings

sbwnik: ..into the bargain. It can be done, but you need to be in the top 5% of engine builders and a f**king amazing engineer to do it. Then you'd need to change your gear box to pull that sort of speed...

Baggy: Gomez.. if you dinny know what jets are - leave it alone, you'll break it

mickymidas: jets are VERY fast aeroplanes....

Gomez: i will stick with my normal engine then because i know jets are very loud. my friend must of been messing around when he said to fit a big jet on it

Upstarts SC: Gomez, start small and work your way up, plenty of plug chops - try a Lockheed if that's a bit lean try a Harrier and lastly go no bigger than a F14 Tomcat.......
