Has anyone tried Mikuni Carbs from a Bike, ski or sea doo in Their 02?

As the Mikuni PHH carbs are "no longer supported" by the manufacturer. Has anyone tried fitting Mikuni 40mm Bike, Ski Doo or Sea doo carbs as sidedrafts in their O2?

I think some Miata and possibly pinto engine owners have placed some Mikuni bike carbs in theirs.

If anyone has, how have they performed? Do they have the same "set and forget" reputation as the PHH's?

Just curious, as the snow/watercraft mikuni carbs are pretty inexpensive.

There were a few threads on that a long while back...

 

Given that a DCOE's not THAT much more than a pair of those,

and fully adjustable, I just stuck with the Webers.

Because I'm lame

T, you may be many things, but lame isn't one of them.

Some of the Mikuni racks for the monster suzuki's seem interesting. Just trying to be cheap...I mean unconventional...

Hey Eurotrash..

Do you still possibly have these carbs for sale? Looking at this option and came across this over several old threads.

 

Cheers,

I've thought about this for years.

I have a BMW R100S (980cc twin) bike with 40mm Bing carbs, 9.5:1 compression ratio, 44mm intake valves, 40mm exhaust valves and it puts out almost 70hp. If I could duplicate this with the '02, I should be able to get a smooth and reliable 140hp....in theory.

Personally, I would go with a pair of the DCOE 40's. The gaggle of Mikunis look to be a synchronizing nightmare at anything but idle and WOT.
