the 24mm is so good i was wondering if there was a size in between the 24 and 30mm that have produced good results?

Nick, I think Corrado had good results with a TM28.

Mazz as you know is using the 28mm and his scooter drinks fuel and MarkH at jet200.com said.
I find the TM28 Mikuni very difficult to dial in. So difficult that I don't sell it or recommend it to others. I struggled with one on a TS1 for many thousands of miles before finally giving up. On paper it looked like it was an ideal match but I've enjoyed the engine much more with the TMX35. That's not to say that smaller TM or TMX carbs can't work well. The TM28 is sort of the oddball of the TM/TMX family.

I have seen Keihin PWK 28 Carburettors used on scooters in the USA and Europe but not heard much here

Yes, I'm now getting an amazing 35mpg with reed valves and set up on the dyno at JB! Luckly I have a long range tank!

I think it's time to visit Chalkey!

Mazz any questions you would like us to ask
TS1 and PX stay in the garage (future barn finds) out on the GTS 300 when I go out on a scooter.
I know I’ll get there and back

No, I use a TMX27 on my Imola, it's the Canines danglies compared to the 30 mm Dellorto I used before it.

Foxy on WKFA uses a TM32 on his Rapido Race 250, he rates it highly.

The TMX 27 on my Imola gave it more power and it used less fuel.

Dunno about the TM 32 on Foxy's 250.
