thanks guys. now. I'm not trying to build a race bike and don't want to do allot of mods so i think i will go with the 30mm. or i should ask how big can i get away with and not cause the need for more mods?
Mikuni doesn't make a 30mm flatslide. Those are Taiwan or Mainland China Keihin "D" slide clones. You'll be happier with the genuine Mikuni when you need floats or gaskets.
I didn't say it was a Mikuni, just a clone, and parts are available on the net.
OK, glad i asked. i did google the amal and decided it has allot more adjusting than i want right now. besides, i have a nice assortment of jets, and a slide for the mik carb. i think i read they were interchangeable with mikuni. and i have been doing all this reading up on the mikuni/mikcarb. now i am still a newbie and have to admit i don't know exactly what a flat side is. the only one i see on nfield gear that says flat side is that no name Taiwanese,"kehin type". they say is good, and i don't doubt that is is but i want the mikuni. the kit i see just says "mikuni carb kit" comes in 30,32,34mm any one for $285. so what is the difference in a flat side and these? thanks for all the help.
as long as I'm getting all this help can anyone tell me will the jets i bought for the stock mikcarb fit any mikuni? or at least the vm32. like i said before i read somewhere they were interchangeable. i also have a new slide for the stock one, I'm guessing that would only fit a vm28.
