No! It will not work on your bike! Save yourself some major grief by sending it to me! :thumbsup: :lol: But seriously folks... it will work great once whatever jetting changes that may be required are done. I'm thinking you'll have to do some throttle cable rigging and possibly adapters for the air boot and/or intake manifold. I have no experience with this conversion so I'm just assuming. Taking the carbs off for measurements would answer all those questions. Certainly a doable project and a mass improvement over the vacuum slide Mikuni!! I have every intention of doing a project like this once I'm back in my home state of Michigan. Just in my initial thought process I believe I would pick the 39mm carb over the 41mm carb. My primary reason would be to maintain and/or improve low end. There will already be a marked increase in top end even going to the smaller bore due to the superior flow design of the FCR carb. Good luck in your project.... I'm jealous! If you ever think of not doing the project for whatever reason I'd be interested in buying your carb

SOURCE: Not easy to start engine
well, you should use your choke... thats the obvious solution.. or you can get a flash intalled meaning it will warm up the petrol for you.. but thats old school

The air screw and throttle screw are NEVER supposed to be tightened up at all. Doing this can damage the seat. Only screw the air screw and throttle screw in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Chances are you will need to replace the adjuster screws to get the bike to idle properly. Yeah, the ends look okay but that little ring indentation where the screw was tightened down matters a lot. If re-setting the screws fixes the problem you should consider yourself lucky.

It sounds like your bike has been sitting in storage for an extended period of time (a year or more) - and the carburetors are plugged up. If this is the case, they will need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out.
If it hasn't been sitting (and the carbs aren't plugged up) then check that all of the normal tune-up items have been performed, especially valve adjustment, oil and filters, spark plugs, etc. If this fails to produce positive results, perform a compression check on the engine. Each cylinder must be able to produce at least 140 psi of compression in order to run and idle properly.
