I know I am only a new to this forum. I am about to fit an RB25 with a VHSB 34 carb. Is there anyway that I can get away with not cutting a hole on my side panel? (SX)

Hi.
I dont know with this carb, but with the TMX35 and with the CNC manifold or Jimmers one you can use the kit without cutting a hole.

The Mikuni TMX32 and TMX35 are 64mm deep but the VHSB34 is 73mm. Using the Mikuni and LTH or Jimmers manifold will save you almost 20mm in total, enough to probably fit a 'Breath sweet' filter too.

Thanks for the info. I've been a Dellorto sort of guy for nearly 30 years, so not sure about the TMX's. I will contact Jimmers re a manifold. Thanks again.

Need to ensure opening of carb is machined down AF already do this when buying one from them And Im sure Jimmers Manifold will give more clearance

The carb was from AF originally. I will measure it today and work the numbers out. Cheers
