    All this talk is getting me all excited. And I haven't even ever rode my bike a single time!



    A carb upgrade already, hmmm, maybe so.

    LaGrasta:



    I'm going to be working in Orange County now so I'll be around a few evenings a week. Maybe I can swing by when I have my bike and let you go for a quick test ride. You'll want a set immediately.

    After the anticipated wait I finally got the Minukis on the ol' Stanley! I took her for ride today to work and then out for awhile after work. The carbs really shine over 3,000 rpm, and full throttle is where they love to be! I have recently found out that my clutch does not like 9,000 rpm or above! I dont have the cahones to get on it in a lower gear like 1st or second yet. I just started riding this year so I have no comparisons to other bikes, but this setup accelerates allot better that the Keihns. That along with the air filters that I put on the bike, which fit behind stock side covers within reason, the sucking of air into the ol 500 sounds awesome! What I really like about the setup is the clean look and the ease of installing and tuning. I will post pictures and mpg rating at a later date!

    Murry---



    I am so jealous of all you guys with 500's or 650 who will be able to get your Mikuni carbs.



    There is a smaller, but not insignificant, world of CX/GL400 owners around the world (Japan, NZ, Australia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, and various European countries) that would find these carb modifications to our liking.



    Any thought as to what would be required to make these mods work for this small, but select group as well? My guess is the demand may be greater than for the 650's.



    Thanks,

    the same setup will fit the 400 it will just be a matter of switching jets not a big deal except i would have to find a 400



    engine and that could be expensive to get over here to play with on the dyno



    i could work with you to figure it out if you have skype so we could talk



    i could make a few educated guesses and ship a set of carbs over with some spare jets

    PLEASE NOTE



    i am already getting calls from people with stock bikes



    the carbs wont fit on a stock setup if you have the air box and the stock h box this setup wont do it



    if there are enough requests i will do a setup for the stock bike but it wont be able to use as good an intake manifold due



    to fitting restrictions

    How do they make the 400? Is it the same bore, just destroked? You might be able to build a 400 motor with just the crank, rods, and pistons if that's the case. It'd be a lot cheaper to send those overseas and put them in a 500 block yourself. If the block or heads are different though, that's moot.

    Finally check highway mileage and did a little over 35mpg cruising 70-75 for about 70 miles and 10 miles to and from the highway.
