Hello,

I'm thinking of fitting a pair of Mikuni VM38 round slide carbs to my 1986 F1 engine and was wondering if anyone has done this already and, if so, what would be suitable jetting?

Cheers, MikeJ

Hi Mike,
Perhaps motorcyclecarbs.com might be able to help you get in the ball park?

Before you get in too deep,try and fit the carbs.You may have clearance issues due to the size of the carb bodies. The flatslides are a tight fit and I think the VMs are a bit larger.
