Got one question, how is the fuel economy ? is the car using much more fuel than on EPI ?

Someone I know of tried the 'smaller' sized bike carbs and found that, while they flowed enough air, they could not support enough fuel flow. Not sure exactly what bike carbs they were, though. Was a while ago I had that chat but I vaguely remember something about the fuel bowl size.

Swifterr: I currently have a set of 34.5 Kaw's on my setup, and I concur with Oz. Fuel barely keeps up with my 1.0 3cyl. I also had to custom jet them, and still was unhappy. With the 36.5's you might have better luck though.

Next up, R1's like the rest of the group! Installing this weekend if all goes to plan!

deam I hope so
My are from 1 litre engine bike, will they be able to keep up with fuel ? I was advised to go with 38-40 mm throttles but they were hard to find :cry:
I got my carbs today well looks like thay can be fitted

Poruki: Since the ones I have are a stock model. after trying VERY hard to find jets and came up with nothing, I had to drill them to 185.

said reason is one reason Im changing to the R1's, Iv ebeen able to find alot more jets and such for them, versus what I have now.

Ah, the guy who ran into fuel issues was running them on a G13B. Bike carbs when on a car will always require bigger jets.

Another carb option you may be able to source would be GSXR1100 carbs like lulyrast uses. I could not use them as they would have fouled on my brake master cylinder - my car is RHD.
