Ok so I got my carb build kit this morning and was having a look at the haynes manual. The manual states that these bikes were fitted with Mikuni carbs. However , my bike has Keihin carbs.



Ideas anyone? Also is there anyway of finding out if a bike is a California model.



Thanks

Mikuni, huh? That's why I don't bother with anything but the factory manual. They are Keihins.

The numbers Scott gave you are valid and can be found on the back side of the bowl. I'll post a pic.

Where did you get the kits from? MOST of the kits available will cause you lots of sorrow. Use OEM or Randaaks only.
