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).
