Just finished reading your build. Great work all around. Really nice bike. Bet she's a blast on those forest roads.

Much thanks.  Still not tuned as I'd like it.  Plan is to go to a 28 or 30mm VM Mikuni.  I need to get in touch with Murray about it.

I found 28mm Mikuni VM carbs at the Barber swap. Apparently they came off a BSA or something. After machining sleeves to adapt them, I got them installed and ran it. It makes a huge difference in how this bike runs...

Awesome.
Did you change the jetting from the bsa or just toss it on there?

Just went straight in to see how it will do.  Needs adjustment at the top end @ >4k

I tried VM28 flat slides on my old 360... I could never get the needle selection quite right. But there was certainly potential. I gave up and went back to stock carbs.

Iím actually coming down to 28 from 32. I know a couple of guys who ran VM28ís on the 378 with great results.

I canít remember if you went to 378 on yours.

I did go to 378.. but I could never get that cursed bike to run well more than a short period of time.. VERY fussy bike. I got tired of having to mess with it every time I wanted to run it... I know you other guys have much better luck with your 360s than i did.

Figured out that I need a dual outlet petcock. Its not filling the bowls like it should. 

Also, working on a much better seat to bring this into the Desert Sled realm...
