But I wonder will the bank of carbs from that work for my 81 if they were rebuilt and synced up, also with the mikuni carbs if they're the right #s does it matter if they came from say a suzuki? Seems to me they would be ok except for maybe the jets and such. Did yamaha use the same carbs on other models say 750's or 850's? Do you know how to tell what the mm of the carbs are?
Thanks for the video.
The 79s will work just fine. Members here will say tuning is actually easier and more accurate in 78/79 carbs.
