I never paid much attention to the writing on the outside of my carbs... but there is not a washer under the main jets in my 36's on my `89 1100. It sounds like someone put some 41mm carbs on your bike? One thing I use a lot when I want to see exploded-view diagrams of stuff is http://www.bikebandit.com ...but be warned... if you're gonna buy OEM suzuki parts, bikebandit charges a *LOT* more for `em than Ron Ayers does.
It's funny... After I read this post, I keep thinking about this, so I finally looked in the shop manual and found this:
...and then I went and looked for the "I.D.#" on my carbs, and lo-and behold there it was:
I dunno what it means, but nowhere on my carbs does it say "BST36SS" although I am certain that my carbs are the OE 36mm Mikuni "slingshot" carbs. I think the numbers you're seeing are just Mikuni's "I.D. #" so they know what model year and country your carbs were meant for.
Yeah I realize now that most of the specs on the net are for NON-US stuff. And to this day I have not seen "bst XX XX" on any carb for a GSXR. Is there somone with a US spec model that can prove me wrong.
I wish we could get a list of the "real carb numbers" Not that bst crap and post them all on this site. US spec that is. It would be extremely friggin helpfull. If I ever get this shit box going (86 750) I will be lookin for an 1100 to go nutz on next winter. A list like that would be very helpfull at the junkyard lookin for carbs...Or online.... But I could be wrong about the bst thing
Anyone got a spec sheet and good diagram for a 92 1100 US spec. Just want a complete set of info if I ever go to sell the bike.
Hey Greg, I've got spec sheets on all the US model 1100's from `89 - `92 in the suzuki shop manual. I looked at the `92 1100 U.S. specs, and that's the 41C1 (your carbs). I can scan and email you the stuff from the manual if you want it.
the '41c1' is part of a suzuki part number (denoting '92 1100).
'bst36ss' is a mikuni model designation, but i think that's just for the main body of the carbs....bst36ss's are used on a bunch of other bikes, not just suzukis. mikuni may use the same carb body for its other oem customers, but the internals could be very different, so going by just 'bst36ss' doesn't really help much.
