Fwiw... the VM carbs can be jetted to work just fine on an XS. In fact, it's a fairly common mod.They are 38's. I was advised that the VM34 is a 2 stroke carb so power will be either low end or high end but not both. Also, I found the cost of a conversion kit to be prohibitive for me. US dollar is at over 40 cents on the $$.
What carb do you need, left or right? I have all kinds of carb parts. Do you need just the body or what parts do you have to have?Sorry, thought I had replied to this. If they are the same then either would do.
Still looking at a fix for the one I have but threads are stripped and a few other issues. Though I would check to see if anyone might have a pair.
It was the fellow at 650 Central that advised against the VM34. He has stopped selling the kits as the price has gone up, as well as shipping, considerably.Not so, I have a pair on mine.
It was the PO fitted them to mine, so I'm not much help.It was the fellow at 650 Central that advised against the VM34. He has stopped selling the kits as the price has gone up, as well as shipping, considerably.
The switch to the VM34 was my original intent. What is entailed in mounting them? The kits came with new manifolds and mounting brackets. Also, how/where do you get the proper cables?
You can tell I'm not much of a mechanic but I'm willing to give it a shot. I can get the carbs here in Canada. It's the mounting that is intimidating.
