Hey all,

I have a 3 cyl 1.0, and am in process of converting to a carb set up.

My question is, what should i use?

Ive heard alot about using R1 Carbs, but since i only need three, can i disassemble the set up and use three? or should i stick to using three seperate mikuni's.

Also, what size should i go for? 38 mm?

Goal for car is just a nice all around driver, with some increased get up!

thanks everyone!

Been admiring that one for a while now!

But as for the carbs, are they 3 seperate units, or a triple carb setup from a Kawasaki?

Any help would be greatly appreciatted!

The Mikunis are 3/4 of a set from a GS1100 motorcycle that
have been respaced to to 84 mm between each.
A simple manifold was also made.

Oh cool, you went the flange route. Nicely done. You can see what I ended up doing on my personal album page. Car will hopefully be done by the end of the month.
