It's worth a try Jason, however, I have checked that the choke seats properly using a piece right angle wire as the choke aperture is too far in to see clearly.

Simon, a gear selector spring with 2 coils removed works well, alot better than standard Mikuni :D , regards.

Good tip, Gary. I've got a few knocking about.

BTW are you still looking for a Franspeed RB Tourer? I might have one for sale.

I am unable to achieve clean jetting with the Mikuni at 1/4 throttle. It's too rich even with a 58 needle on the top clip.

I have even tried modifying a number 6 slide, but this has caused problems elsewhere in the range.

So, I'm thinking either a 34mm VHSB or a 30mm VHSH.

Any recommendations bearing in mind this particular engine likes it lean?

Try Mark at Jet200 Performance, He's very knowledgable with Mikuni's and also loves to get Ric-Rolled!
