Finally got to take it i had to rebuild the front brake caliper but everything is working good now. Just taking it easy still only put 6 miles on it now. I'm running one of those kph to mph converters on the speedo.  I think a pipe n silencer is gonna happen soon.

Also will be updating the carb it has a mikuni VM 30mm. I was thinking a mikuni TM i can only find 28mm sizes forsale will have to get it bored out to 30mm. The 32mm is based off the 34 and i think it won't fit the reed block manifold looks to large.

If you want a 30mm flat-slide carb, you could try the Mikuni "TMX30", as fitted to DT200WR, WR200, DT230 etc. The spigot size is the same as the TM28SS (or at least close enough for easy fit). There is also an aftermarket version (i.e. non-OEM Yamaha) which I presume is near identical (https://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/products/carburettor+mikuni+tmx+30+_40070000).

It's got 100 miles on it now I haven't gotten it up to max speed yet. The fastest I've taken it up to is 75mph at 10k in 5th gear.

Most of the roads i ride it on are 35 to 45mph and it will easily cruise up to 60mph. It handles good very flickable in the corners. Had me laughing on my one fav road section. This up hill or down thats a couple miles long that has back to back 10 mph corners. On my 250s it takes more english to hit the corners the 150 carved them up like a bicycle.

I just bought a aftermarket racing exhaust for it should help it breathe better knock off some weight too. The y y pang brand my friend got one for his nsr 150 earlier in the year it's good quality. It was on sale for $64 usd shipping was more at $93.

Ergo's wise it's like the 1kt in seating and handle bar position and size wise.

My yy pang exhaust showed up today that was fast shipping. It's considerably lighter than the stock exhaust. Build quality is easily comparable to tyga.

Got it mounted up it has to be a good 5lbs lighter than the stock setup. Sounds much better now sounds like a real smoker should. Fitment is good went on easy only change i made was the center bolt. I used a shorter bolt with two fender washers on each side of the mounting tab to stabilize it better.

It doesn't use the thick rubber grommet mount style like the stock pipe.

Finally got to take it out and test the pipe it pulls much better now. It was a day of 150's my friend finally broke out his nsr150sp which is pretty much stock cept for a tyga pipe and rear sets and yss shock.

The tzm is a bit bigger in size compared to the nsr the tzm bars have a wider stance. Everything is a little more closer to how a bigger bike feels. Both bikes have the same tyres mounted.

Performance wise they are very similar power handling etc.
