    This place has the cheapest prices I've found. Mikuni VM30s for $89.95, VM32s for 94.95.

    Stay away from the pre-jetted carb kits. If you're planning on using lowered bars then the throttle cable they include will need to be trimmed, and so you'd be better off getting a custom job from MotionPro. Also the filters they include are usually cheap. And as far as the jetting goes, you can just use the search function on here to get an idea of what others have done. Then order an assortment of jets, with your mains and pilots going a step up and down...

    Keep your stock carb manifolds. They are angled slightly outward, and you'll need that in order for your carbs and filters to clear the frame.

    I know the advice has always been to stay away from pre-jetted carbs but I bought my pre-jetted mikunis from Sudco many years ago and I've yet to change anything other than the main jets.

    Dime City cycles offers a 30mm Mikuni pre-jetted for the 350 and it may be legit. What I really meant to say was to avoid the "complete" kits that have the way-too-long throttle cable an pod filters, when a shorter cable and a pair of Uni filters or K&N's can be had for cheaper...

    Base everything on what you can read, learn and price here:

    http://www.sudco.com/index.html

    Sudco is where an awful lot of these carbs come into the US. Their prices will give you an idea of how high or low others are pricing.
    I've bought half a dozen carbs from them, not pre-jetted though. Good prices, best info, parts diagrams and parts supply in the country from what I've seen.

    Sudco might not be the cheapest, but they aren't the most expensive either, and you'll get carbs that are probably right off the boat from Japan. I've even requested carbs they don't have and they've got them from Japan for me.

    The snowmobiles you worked on two-stroke? If so, none of your stuff will work correctly.
