Does anyone know what else the mighty Mikuni 36mm CV carb was used on? Suzuki GSX-R, Kawi Zephyr? It looks from Mikuni USA website, they only make the Harley conversion?

For Nancies!

Stick a brace of PHM40 Dellortos on! :-D

You'd be seriously over-carbed then...I reckon!
If it is worth doing...it is worth doing to excess!!! :-D

I'd love a set of Dellorts but the price is a bit prohibitive. In fact, I'd be happy with a set of Kehins if I could find them.


BTW Balla, what kind of carburetors do the mixing on the TBS?

I am using the stock Keihins as fitted to the Legend, TBird & I think, TBS too?

They do seem to fuel better than the Mikunis on the early TBirds.

I haven't tried it, and am quite prepared to be corrected by those that have, I think 36mm would be too big a choke for a 900 Triple.

30 - 32mm is about right to deal with a displacement of about 300cc IMO

36 - 40mm carbs are better suited to big twins.
