Hey all, I need some quick advice. I got a project kz1000b (79LTD) with vm26 and I can't tune them. I have an evaporating by the minute opportunity to buy a set of Mikuni RS 38 Series Carburetor cheap. Too much carb for a stock bike with pods and a no baffles exhaust? Next year or soon later I'll be probably putting a 1075 piston kit but not for a while
Ran a set of RS36's on my KZ1100, and was advised by fellow forum members they were too big. RS34's have been great, even considering the engine has since become an 1135 with a stock 84 bathtub head and ZX1100A camshafts.
I think RS36's would still be too big with the current engine setup.

That only applies if using the bathtub head on the earlier KZ903/1015cc kickstart motors.
The later J and GPZ non kickstart equipped all share the same 40cc volume combustion chambers ( the earlier KZ's are 36cc ).
