any one know the origin of this carb? Believed to be from a TS185 - it's 24mm inlet.

Clean it well then look for very tiny numbers stamped into machined faces. Then the hard part starts.

Mikuni VM24 as used on TS/TC125 and 185's.

There will be 5 digit number on the top of the flange. And yes, clean it up to make it easy to read.

There are numbers in the manual section (service data) with the numbers. Also the part number for the carb has a suffix. This should match the number on the carb...

It clearly states that it is a PO7 on the carb flange in pic 2.

No other numbers?? Not off of a Van Van by chance?

I'm the owner of the carb in question I'm pretty sure it's a TS185 carb but if anyone knows different it would be good to know, on one side of the mounting flange it has PO7 and on the other side it has 481-11 I spent 20 mins on it and gave it a bit of a clean.

I could not see the section with stamped numbers. Eg if it had 305 on it that would mean TS250. It may not even be a suzuki orignal carby. It could very well be aftermarket Mikuni such as one sold through GEM back in the day

Edit - 481 means it was first made for a TS100
search this page for '481'
https://www.cmsnl.com/help/faq/96_suzuki/

because it has 481 11

it might be this'
Part # = 13200-48111
Part Description = CARBURETOR ASSEMBLY
Model Count = 10
DS100C 1978 100 DS100 DUAL PURPOSE
DS100N 1979 100 DS100 DUAL PURPOSE
DS100T 1980 100 DS100 DUAL PURPOSE
DS100X 1981 100 DS100 DUAL PURPOSE
DS125C 1978 125 DS125 DUAL PURPOSE
DS125N 1979 125 DS125 DUAL PURPOSE
DS125T 1980 125 DS125 DUAL PURPOSE
DS125X 1981 125 DS125 DUAL PURPOSE
TS100C 1978 97 TS100 HONCO DUAL SPORT
TS125C 1978 123 TS125 DUSTER DUAL SPORT

i also see 77 on it so that may mean manufactured in 1977 (to first go on the 78 models)

also putting part number 13200-48111 into this part assignment tool on this site https://www.bike-parts-suz.com/suzuki-motorcycle/assignment_spare_parts

says its on TS125ER and TS100ER which makes sense since you are in England.

I agree. Same carb as on both of my 'UK' version TS125ER's.

I believe the UK version (as sold in NZ, Aussie) TS100ER used the exact same carb. Same jetting and everything.


Also my ER125 carbs have the end of the atmospheric tubes blocked. Same as with your photos. There will be two pin hole size openings on bottom side of carbs. so DO NOT attach PVC tubes to them, like can be done on the 185 carbs!!!


I'd be interested in buying that carb if you were over my way!


Here is the info on your carbie (jetting etc)...

http://suzukits.informe.com/forum/service-manuals-service-data-f315/re-suzuki-ts125er-uk-79-89-service-data-t1073.html


So it is not a TS185 carb!

ps. My avatar is me wringing out my ER125 on the beach!!!

Thanks Butcher for your information on this its very much appreciated I've had a good look at the carb info on the link and it does indeed appear to be this carb the only difference I can see in the information you supplied are the floats the ones in this carb are the brass type held in place with a horizontal pin not the black plastic type other than that it's the same. I currently have it listed on eBay and have "just" revised the listings information to show this as being from the TS125 ER, if you are interested have a look and if you decide you would like to place a bid great and I'll get it straight off to you as soon as the listing closes, thanks for your help ;)

Generic carbs don't have the 5 dig. number on them. Manufacturers stamp them on.


The brass floats and plastic ones are interchangeable (I think). Plastic ones don't corrode (of course).

I've just listed it in the "For Sale section butcher and it has about 22 hours to go on eBay just in case you're interested.

Well a damn fine price. My bank manager is shaking his head! I will have to pass.

Hey may be take photo of it's insides... Might help you selling it.

There is a member on here from France I think that put a TS125ER motor into a sort of rail car / jigger. I think He was this guy...

Forget the US 100/125. His carb is UK 100/125. Both UK ones have #85 main jet according to Haynes manual. The US carbs have different part numbers and use #115 and #120 main jets respectively.
