Hey Ryan
What did you do for the choke on the Mikuni BST36's?
What diameter pods fit the BST36's?
Thanks for your help.

I didnt do anything yet.My friend Der Nanno bought a bowden puller from a lawn mawer and installed it.
IRC mine are 60MM in diameter,just measure the longer side of the oval and the round filter will adapt.Just make sure to trim back the rubber boot on the inside or it may block the air opening for the membrane.

Yup, one of those lawn-mower throttles did the trick perfectly. Or you get a left-side XV750/920/1000 switch cluster and swap out the bottom case to make it look like this:



Filter-inlet has to be 63mm and yes, you may end up trimming the rubber part of it a bit.

You could, of course, go all in and dump the Triumph carbs in favour of a set of VM36s, which is what I did. There's some snowmobiles that use VM36 carbs, so they aren't more expensive than CV carbs, but you have to solder a lot of throttle cables and splitters etc.

Guess we will have to line you (without the anchor) and Ryan up one day and see which carbies give the better performance!  ;D

That's quite simple: The VM36s (I used to run Triumph carbs on my first XS triple sidecar), but the Triumph carbs are less hassle to install ;-)

Seat is now finished, very happy with it. But as I have said before the Napa leather is vulnerable to staining when handling in the shed. So it is not on the bike while I am working on it.
