  • Best carb for Reed 460 ?

    Should I get a new carb for the reed motor? It has HDA 223 right now.

    There is some sort of WJ carb out there, I don’t knew the number. Maybe WJ71? I’d really want someone else to chime on on this b/c I’m interested too. The only one I can find is $300 ish with the linkage. But thats stupid money for a scooter carb imo.

    many people will say the 223 is fine, which it most likely is.

                    HDA48 is the same Venturi size as the 223. I have seen people “upgrade” to hda48 on the 460, not sure why.

                        The 48 has the same venturi size as the 223, but it has more 'flow' and no pulse line in its original setup

                        That is why you don't see a 223's on 60 motors.

                            I can confirm that the 223 and the 48 have the same bore and venturi.

                            The big difference seems to be in the needles. The taper on the HDA 48 needles is fine (sharper point, the H tip diameter is about 0.7 mm for the 223, and about 0.5 mm for the 48). This means that the 48 should flow more fuel since the needle tips are the same height.

                            edit: the pop off pressure for the 223 is also much lower than the 48.
