ya,definitely go with the tb 88 kit. so much better, the 75 doesnt add that much more power, especially compared to an 88. the 88s are much more fun to rife, believe me

I have a stock exhaust and my TB 88 kit hauls the mustard. Get the bore up kit and a TB oil pump if you are tight on the cash flow. That will set you back about 193. There is no kit with 75 or 82ccs that will touch it. I have no idea why companies even sell 75 and 82 kits.

have u ever had problems? and im thinking about just doing that and then later on when i have more money get a big carb, i hear the TB is not as good as the other 20mm, but the base TB 88 with oil pump and springs will go good on a stock exhaust? i just dont want my bike to over heat, or bog and whatnot

i beg to differ, i know a guy that had a powroll 81cc kit, ported and polished stock head, powroll cam, FMF pipe, bored out carb, and a K&N filter, and a shaved flywheel and i got money says that thing would run with a stock head 88.....i know this is kinda comparing apples to oranges since his motor had other things done, but u made a generalization that wasn't correct.

TB is just as good if not better than Kitaco or Takegawa. Quality is very good. A stock exhaust is almost better if you are just using the bore up kit because you will have more back pressure. A high flow exhaust works better with the big carb on an 88. You have to watch the heat around the intake if you aren't getting the carb kit. A long moto will make so much heat near the intake that it will run poorly after awhile. Wrap the stock intake in heat wrap to insulate it and you will be good to go.

I am running the TB Race Head motor, I have so many hours on it, its rediculous, id put money I have more hours on my motor than anyone else, and it still runs like the day I put it in. And the TB carb is just as good as any thing else out there, I dont have any problems with mine at all. And before I had the race head, I ran the TB motor will 20mm carb cam, and bore with a ported stock head on a stock exhaust and I would pull hole shots at races. Trust us, go with the TB 88 and you will not be dissapointed, if you get a BBR 82 or even one of those 75's, it wont take long and you will kick yourself for not getting a 88 to begin with.

great, so i shouldnt get the base TB 88 kit, save up 200 dollars, and buy like a kitaco 20mm carb? i should just spend the 320 (after pump and clutch springs) on the complete kit?

They are pretty easy to install, you dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. You might run into a couple little things that are hard but if you have any basic mechanical skills you will be able to do it. The TB kits come with directions right? If so that will make it alot easer.

I beg to differ on their 20mm carb. That's the only problem we had with that kit on 2 bikes we built. We changed the jetting and tried everything, even emailed TB and got their imput (and they were very helpful) We just dropped a Keihin sp? 20mm carb on and the thing was a rocket with no adjustments to the carb, straight out of the box! Anyone want to buy a brand new TB 20mm carb with intake, no hardware or anything else, I got one sitting in my garage. :p

where's z88R with his imput?
