as for most "missing" parts or "is this good enough" talk there is really only one thing to say

Honda paid alot of very smart guys alot of money to figure out how to make these bikes.  If you dont fully understand motors or bikes its best to do things exactly like honda did it.  this will lead to the best results.

as for the carbs.....what are they off of?  you have a manifold for them?
do they link together in some way?
do you know the size?  honestly they look like they are to big.
these motors dont run well in stock form and bigger carbs
straight pipe exhaust and pods = still stock motor.

If i can find my rotor puller, that junk will be off! thanks you sir!


As for the carbs..


I have one other, identical to those Mikuni's, They came in the big Box of parts that everything else on this build pretty much came from.
So much other than that I'm not sure.. I have read somewhere that they dont use a mounting plate? and that they both mount directly to each carb inlet on their own?


Haha, yea.. I'm not sure of the size, they do look big.
I'm looking for you guys to figure out this one, it's beyond me.. All i could think of is getting, a set of carbs that are known to fit, but that's out of the budget for now I suspect.

Ill tell ya this... Those carbs are worth more than the motor on your desk. Honestly. Theyre Mikuni flatslides. If theyre in good useable condition you can get over $100 a pop for them easily. Put them up for trade on Craigslist and the forums for a set of VM30s, or put them on EBAY. As far as theyre size, it should be stamped on them somewhere. Look for a number. My very uneducated guess is that theyre  32 or 34 mm, which is WAY too big.
Like a river that don't know where it's flowin'
I took a wrong turn and just kept goin'

Makes sense..


Here's another pic of em, The two on the bracket have to springs tension on the levers, but I'm assuming all (4) would mount to the same engine..





But yea they are in good condition..


My options were leaning towards Mikuni VM24's (28mm Manifold, right?) or the VM30's such as VonY. stated.
What do you think? This bike wont go through many mods, I just want it reliable with a little "oomp!" if possible.

Ah they seem to be 36mm, huge as hell. Visibly larger than my intake manifolds.

To get the rotor off use a STOCK back axle bolt threaded into it. Tighten it down, smack the end with a hammer and turn and I bet it pops off. I did the same for mine.

DO NOT USE A 3 JAWED PULLER it will crack the rotor. They are meant to be driven off from the center not pulled from the outside.

those carbs are off a 4 cylinder bike.
if you have all of the linkages to get them back on one rack then do that and sell them.  they really arent worth a hole lot as singles as most people arent willing to fab linkages, worry about jets, or try and see if they will even work as singles.
shame, those carbs were worth a good chunk, if you cant get them back together.


even VM30s are a bit much for a stock motor.
just find a cheap set of stock carbs and see if you can get it running that way first.  if you start modding before you get it running then you will have nothing to fall back on when its not working right.....

frogman, I'll give it a go!

Mikuni BST36SS im guessing.
I seem to have the linkage aswell, they also seem to fit on the GSX750F's / Katana 750's 89' - 97'.
Maybe a DRZ400, aswell? mehhh..


I'll see if I can move em.
I've set my sights on VM30's - Jetted at 150/23 for starts.

Here is some convo on pulling the stator w/ the rear axle.  http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=20106.130.  The phillips head screws holding starter clutch on the back are PITA, but will pop loose with and impact or a couple of solid whacks with the hammer.  I would def remove that stuff, it's just a waste to leave it.


For the starter hole, you can use an expanding freeze plug.  You can find one at any auto parts store for like $5.  I put one in mine until I can put something prettier in there.  It worx tho. Can't remember the exact size, but you can figure that out.  Here's a pic, you can kind of see it.

I agree with with this philosophy, it will give a baseline that you know will work, or even a set of aftermarket carbs that have already been rejetted for your model and are proven. You could be in retirement by the time you get carbs set up from scratch and have eliminated all the other variable gremlins that will inevitably be lobbing spanners into the works. Those flat slides should bankroll the project which looks like it's progressing very nicely. :)
