Mikuni carb
« on: May 18, 2014, 11:18:52 PM »
I have a  Mikuni carb that came on my 2000 Bullet, I took a measurement of the bore @ 34 mm I can't find any model number on it. Can anyone tell from the photos?

Mikuni VM34.
It's a good carb, but perhaps a little big for a stock bike.
Many people have them, and they can work fine, and most people don't really notice any ill effects from being slightly too big.

It does require the larger intake manifold that probably came with the kit you show there. It will not fit on the OEM intake manifold.

Thanks Ace, yeah, I have the manifold too, The original owner had it installed on the bike when I got it, the bike only had 25 miles on it when I bought it and I never started the bike with it on there. I wanted it back to stock so I bought a Micarb 28 and the parts to return it back to stock. Lately I've been thinking of an Amal 930. The Micarb work great but I like the idea and looks of the Amal.
Thanks again for the model #.

You should consider a new tm-32 if you are in the market for a new carb.  The vm34 is good as well -- I used to have one and it ran similar to the tm32 I have now though the idle is much more steady with the tm.  You just need the correct jets for the vm34 and it will run fine.
