    It’s something I’ve always wanted to try, and it seems like these guys can make it happen. For a price. I’ve messaged them anyhow. Anyone else know a manifold supplier?

    I have a sneaky feeling it won’t be quite that simple ha ha.

    I have manifolds for both types and am SU carb. Never fitted them but will probably get around to it one day.

    That looks very nicely done smiddl. Can i ask what may be a stupid question?

     

    What are the benefits of a single carb? (Apart from it looking sexy as hell)

    I suppose no balance issues and the standard carbs have a tendency to split the diaphragms which can be expensive .Mikuni is quite a straightforward reliable carb and plenty of cheap available spares .No real performance gain but as you say looks pretty good

    As smiddl says no balancing is the main advantage but also settings are guaranteed to be identical. There are various ways I’ve seen this done but not seen the Mikuni done before. What size and model is it?

    The B and G models all use 38mm carbs whereas the others use 34mm carbs. Don’t get confused thinking a single carb needs to have double capability as they are used alternatively as each piston rises on it’s compression stroke. A single carb of the same capacity will do this it just does it twice as often.

    Nice one. Can I ask where you got the conversion? Sorry for the late reply.
