They still get the job done. Many applications use VM instead of CV. (And yes a lot of that is the convenience of the VM over about any other.) Anyways, back to your questions, I am more than happy to advise anyone who wants to know what I have to offer about carbs. I am an enthusiast like most of you. I have a lot of knowledge of Mikuni carbs to share, but I would first advise anyone to be apprehensive of anyone's claims. That is how I learned the most about motorcycle carbs in the first place. But, if you would like to know anything I have to offer, then ask. I will offer my honest answer, and I would hope you would double check me. I would anyone else.

Mufflers are OEM, and in excellent condition. I cut them off before the weld so they can be re-used.

Stellen Sie zweimal. Es ist in Ordnung.
These carbs if I'm not mistaken are authentic Mikunis and you can find a ton of useful information about all the Mikunis, models, tuning parts and other stuff at They specialize in Mikuni carbs and I have dealt with them for years. I run the VM roundslide carbs and the TM flatside carbs on different bikes. The roundslide are the easiest to jet and tune, IMHO. Hope this helps.
