Anyone know the carb size on a 75-77 CB500T? Should be the same as the 450 if that helps. I have a line on some flat slides but won't get'm if they're too small..

Thanks in advance!

Just remember that flatslide flow more air that roundslides. Something like 30mm rounds flow as much as 28mm flats. Don't over-carb your engine.
I was just thinking the same thing - 34mm flatslides are pretty much overcarbing on anything less than 900ccs. Even some of the carbed liter bikes from the 80's and 90s don't have carbs that big.

Hmmm.....My SuperIII has 39mmflatties, but it's also loaded with Cosworth internals and that may require the extra flow. I'll have to look into it further....
Thanks for the heads up!
