I thought it was the air filter but on closer inspection I realized that someone took the original carburetor off and replaced it with a smaller one. No idea why they would do it.

So I am looking for a secondhand carburetor for a Honda twister.

That is a neat looking twister, what top speed were you expecting to get? I havnt taken mine on a highway in a couple months but from what I remember around 140 on the clock was the most I could get on a flat Road, anything past that just felt like I was gona hurt the bike, then again I'm not a very aggressive rider.
