Engine Builds What Carbs 38/40CV or 41CR Keihin
While sourcing parts for a build that was going slow (and in another direction) I happened upon an awesome streetfighter build for sale here in Mtl. Having part of the GSXR scene 20yrs ago I kinda knew the seller and was easily persuaded to pick up this bike. Eventually I also returned to bad habits and picked up a load of spares. As much as I have wanted to build an 815 with the several 750's I have lying around the big cc vs price and ease was too tempting (and it goes back to my earlier 7/11 days).
So now I have one built 7/1216 bike that has 38mm carbs attached. A few threads down you'll notice they were gunked and I lost a part while dismantling them. I have not run the bike now but up and down the street. Blows some blue smoke in start up, black in acceleration, running 147.5 jets.
Now I have also picked up 40mm CV's and a set of 41 Keihin CR's (not FCR, older set I gather). Both seem clean, I don't think rebuilds are in order.
What carbs would you recommend I fettle with to get this running great. Do flatslides induce more chance of stalling or flooding. Always heard CV's as friendlier options and the 38mm or 40mm as great options on the 1100 series engines, especially big bore. And I'll throw a curve into the mix.
I have an 1127 and Bandit 1200 engine as back-ups, DOT heads and enough stuff around in case something were to go down with the 1216. So what combo's should maybe be set aside for use if I ever go down to one of these alternate engines?
How would you build your bike(s)? I should mention I have a Stage 3 Dale Walker Bandit 1250 for sport touring or daily use, so consider this a head to the bar, cruise the local countryside type bike. No long distance or heavy traffic plans.
