I've taken a lot of carbs apart, and I like this unit. Pretty user friendly. One of the float bowl screws was torqued by godzilla though, which required dremeling the screw into a flat head and using the impact screwdriver. I found the float to be over a 1/4" low, which is why the bike was hard starting and took a long time to heat up enough to go. All of the screw caps I have removed before were aluminum. This cap appears to be brass and has a hole in the center of it.
Getting the carb out of the 125 was a chore though. The design of the intake hose to the air cleaner housing required much man-handling and beers. I installed a K&N, not so much for performance, but rather to get away from the dreaded chore of cleaning and oiling the foam filter.
