I like the one on the left.  Are you painting the tank black?

Either black, metallic black, dark hammered silver, or something else in that range. Not sure yet. The engine will be entirely black as well.

Cracked open the engine last night. I have three good motors, and none of them are ready to run. This one has a good bottom end, and I'm taking the top end from a different motor. This will give me a chance to paint, check components, put in all new gaskets, and make sure the timing is correct.




I'm a bit disappointed to find out how expensive carb kits are for the KZ200. Since the PW26 is a relatively rare carb, I'm going to try using a brand new replacement carb from ebay. Here's a pic and a link to the carb. There are tons of parts, jets, and kits available for this carb since it is used on many different scooters/bikes, so I'm hoping it will be an economical replacement. Best of all, $28 with free shipping!

Bad news is that I wont be able to use the stock air box. This carb will fit the motor intake perfectly, but the intake port on the carb that connects to the air box is far bigger than the KZ's stock carb. Oh well, time to find a cool retro looking pod filter.

I want to travel to Vietnam so bad. Awesome country! I do believe that the KZ200 has a huge following over there right? Don't they call it a Binter Merzy?

Anyhow, glad you like my bike! And your English is much better than my complete inability to speak your language.

A small wire brush, some hot soapy water, and more elbow grease! This engine is going to be up and running very soon. I'm not yet sure if I'm gonna polish these further with steel wool, or just paint them entirely black. Decisions...decisions.

Covers came out good, i also like the way you made the seat using the stock pan.

Looks like its going to be a bumpy ride tho, i would know because my last bike had 1/2 an inch of foam and then leather to sit on. But as you said, its more than enough for around the town scooting :)

Smart idea with the spray-foam to level the seat out!
You sure that carb for 4-stroke?

Try VHT wrinklepaint on the engine. You won't be dissapointed ;)

The spray foam worked great, but I'm a little worried it might break down over time. I had the upholsterer attach my seat cover to the bottom of the pan with snaps in case I need to fix my foam eventually.

Great idea on the VHT wrinkle paint--gonna check out colors tomorrow!

Yes, it's used for 150cc-200cc scooters and Asian quads--all 4 strokes. I figure the new carb is $12 cheaper than a rebuild kit for my old carb, so why not give it a try and possibly save myself the hassle of rebuilding and cleaning an old carb.
