Why is Koso sold soo much when it is not any better than no name Chinese parts. I order 2 sets of sliders, 4 gram and 6 gram. The 4 gram weighed in at 5.5 gram and the 6 gram weighed in at over 7 grams
Koso is just crap with a fancy name that costs more. I think there may be genuine koso and knock off stuff. Yeah copy of a copy. I’ve had good stuff in years past but earlier this year I picked up a “koso” variator on the cheap to try out. I just threw it out. Wasn’t even worth keeping the sliders.
I think it depends what you’re buying. Koso gauges seem pretty nice, though I’ve only owned one tach/temp combo. It actually came with good documentation, unlike most Chinese gauges. I’ve got some old Koso contra springs and clutch springs that have worked alright for me, though I wouldn’t say they’re anything special. Their variators are the same as DLH, which is not good.
That is what I also thought of DHL when i looked at their variator. I just though i would vent a little in the forum Koso just keeps pissing me off. I am going to stick with no name chinese oem parts for a while. The good name brands polini molassi are too much for me now. Stock variator clutch coil cdi carb all have veen good.
