If you are satisfied that a peak power rpm of 6000 rpm is okay for you, then the TM32 will do fine. You only need the TM34 if the desired rpms are higher than 6000 rpm. They will both fit the manifold, so you can pick the one you want, based on your needs.And as the rpm requirements go higher, even larger carbs can be needed.It depends on your desires. I need to know which one you pick, so we can port the head to suit.This means filling the port floor up with some filler, so that it can be made smaller for this application. The port size as it comes from the factory is too big for normal purposes. A smaller port diameter will help your midrange torque and cruising power, which seems to be what you are wanting, right?
Guys , just wondering ..........are we there yet ? Wondering what Ace will develop for the AVL kit.
I recently put a TM-32 on my AVL. I modified the stock throttle cable to fit, just takes a little time and soldering. Bend/curve in the cable is not a problem. Bill N.
The balls are just soldered on 2CV. Use a small propane torch to heat it up, the solder will melt and the ball will come right off. Make your adjustments to the cable housing and cable and then use a vice or something to hold ball in place and solder the cable back on using either the torch or a good soldering iron. Not difficult at all.Scottie
Hi 2CV,I had the same thought as you. I just purchased a normal IB throttle cable for the VM series carbs (TM/VM cables use the same ball at the end). However, that Sudco cable that Ace recommended looks WAY better. Based on what I've read, a few folks have used the angled cable adjuster and others haven't. Seems to work either way and i'll be without it as it all lines up for me ok. How about the spring in the TM? Like wrestling a greased up weasel trying to stuff it all back in, eh?
I have your baseline port low test results. I will post it when I get home.Some of the info I reported previously on the port size was erroneous because something was wrong with my caliper and it was reading wrong. The port size is big, but not THAT big. Mondello's thinks they can port it to flow faster without filling the floor.Regarding the jets for the TM32, good starting point for jetting is:30 pilot (22/210 type)P4 needle jet (389 type)Stock 5fp17 needle in middle position195 main jet (4/042 type)That will get you in the neighborhood. You may have to do some changes for temperature changes.We will install our alloy manifold on your head for mounting the TM32.
The only pain in the ass with the TM32 is that it only comes with the cold starting knob on the left side. This is a bit awkward to operate because it is way under the tank. If this is a problem that is too irritating, then Sudco makes a conversion kit to change the knob to a cable connection, and it can be cable operated with a handlebar mounted choke lever. You have to buy all the parts separately, but it can be done.
