I have honda cm 400 t and was wondering if there were a different carb options to run pods other than the stock CV 22 A...are there carbs that I could buy do I didn't have to reset and alter stock carbs
Tks man, life is definitely a learning curve as are old bikes...last one I totally went and just sold..Go with vm30 mikuni's put a pair of 33's on a LTD 440 Bobber, It's a little ripper. I see them as low as 30 bucks new. have fun bolting them on because that's when the fun stops and the tuning begins. If you have never tuned a carb, just remember dual are twice the fun. CaTac recommended a great carb but I think putting Keihin's on a cm400 is a waist, you could buy another 400 lol
I do have the carbs that came with bike and they are in pretty good shape..would it be easier to modify those and dial them in. If I get the mikuni , they have individual throttle so is that 2 in one ....and individual chokes on each carb..dial them in, not sure what that intails
If you are buying the right carburetor it should fit the stock intake manifold adapter,Sounds ds like this is the way to go, would I use honda manifold boots or would I get them with the vm mikuni carbs..thanks for taking time to explain that for me
Not really a dumb question, one carb for 2 cylinders is an option, it's just not considered a performance option. One big carb would necessitate a unique 1 into 2 intake manifold. One carb simplifies tuning because there is nothing to balance, it might even be a little cheaper but it is certainly not a popular aftermarket modification.Am I to use 2 carbs..i know this is a dumb question.....tks
might be great if he was building a trials bike.Here are your carb intake boots for vm30 to honda 400e and mikuni make the single to double pull cable for their carbs. ://www.speedmotoco.com/vm30-intake-rubber-flange-adapter-cm400-cm450-p/009-00-1.htm . You lose top end with a single carb but improve low end, Not a good trade off
A single carburetor feeding 2 cylinders has a simplicity advantage and thereby a slight reliability advantage, but a dedicated carburetor for each cylinder is considered to yield a very slight performance advantage.Not sure I understand the humor...is that not a good set up..
