I'm thinking of fitting Mikuni carbs to my C Rapide. Any for/against/recommendations? thanks
Plasticbeer -- there is a jet in the bottom of the fuel enrichening circuit. You can get various sizes of them. Fit a smaller one. The Woolly has 34 mm flat slide Mikunis and I had to put very small jets in there. Just starts up on a high idle like a choke normally makes it do. If you are too cheap (I know you Yorkshire types - I was born there) to buy a smaller jet, get a very fine stainless wire (like take a throttle cable apart) and put it in the jet, then solder up the hole, then pull the wire out -- Voila -- a smaller jet.
