    mikuni vm32, how much scratch?

    during a vinmoto outing last night a guy brought some mikuni's to sell. i told him i was interested; how much should i offer him?
    according to him they were bought for his cr450 replica project by mistake and they include velocity stacks, quick turn throttle, and are jetted for a 350/450. he's throwing a fork brace in to sweeten the deal. he's saying $300.

    There's a guy that advertises in the AHRMA newsletter that sells Mikuni 32mm carbs for $89 each. I don't know if that includes jetting or not, I'd assume it does. Quick turn throttle figure about $50. I don't know what your guy is selling for velocity stacks but the price ranges from about $25 for why bother quality to big bucks for really well done stacks.
    The phone # in the ad is 402 896 1809.

    Holy cow. $89 is cheap.

    But if the carbs are already jetted or close to being jetted, you can save some $dough there. Needle jets are $25 each, main jets are $3-5. Pilot jets are $10 or so.... Adds up quickly.

    You can buy prepped 32mm Mikunis from Sudco or Sporting for Less for about $115 per carb.....

    Yeah, but Sudco's ideas on jetting tend to be a lot off...

    a quick hijack...

    i can't find the link where people had started posting their jet settings, can anyone send me in the right direction?

    also can anyone clear up for me the difference between mikuni 4-stroke and 2-stroke needle jets?

    I'm looking to get some VM32s for my CB350. Does Sudco sell retail to individual customers? From what I can gather, their out of the box jetting "customized" for your particular application is hit or miss.

    I'll bet ya that those 32mm are too big for your engine. What's the stock size?
