First thanks guys for the compliments I really appreciate them!
The 18mm Mikuni carb #VM18-144 comes with an 80 main jet, which is a little
on the rich side at top end, so I've got some various jet sizes above and below
the stock ones on order. I plan on using a 70 or 75 main jet. Currently I've located the 5 notch needle clip to the top, making it as lean as it can. It accelerates very
well and has rapid throttle response also. In order to mount the Mikuni, I had to
use a short piece of PVC tubing in order to reduce the spigot mounting inside
diameter, so that it would fit the intake manifold.That worked real well.I've been
trying to mount a UNI Filter to it, but so far I haven't gotten a good fit, so I'll
have to do some more mods to the filter and mount.
