The trick is to use TMs that aren't completely worn out. (check out my XS-Triple build here on this forum and you will see what I mean)

I'm running dual TM34's on my BMW F650 (Rotax engine) and they are a treat.  Perfect carbs for that engine.  No clack, afaik.

the one on my xr650l is a kehin fcr42mx it clanks lol mind you its a bit worn and its a big bore high compression lumpy cam thumper

the mikuni tm36s on my 750 nighthawk and my gl650 are quiet as are the tm38s on my xs1100

just that fcr

i have a cx500 with a pair of fcr37 and they do it to a lesser degree so maybe they are just a bit noiser

Keihin FCRs are indeed a bit noisier than other flatslides, but their performance is oooooh... Anyway, we're a bit far off-topic on this thread now.
