Single Carburetor Manifold

PostAuthor: Skip's Service » Thu Sep 27, 2018 9:22 am

Has anyone switched from a dual carb system to a single setup? If so, are there any advantages. I am having problems with the Right cylinder not firing and from what I have been able to find it is a fuel problem. Trying to replace the dual carb setup is a real bear... I am thinking of going to a single carb to make things a lot easier down the road. Any suggestions????

You’ll find loads of information in this section of the forum Single Carb/Power Adder

I have moved this thread to that section of the forum, but left a copy in XV1100.

What is the problem you are having with your stock carbs?

The dual carbs on the viragos are now over 30 years old (starting in 1981). Theyre a bastard to take off when not working properly. Over the last 4 years I`ve tried several manifolds an carbs. The crappiest thing I ever bought was the P901 "manifold" from ccworks. I tried the "searayguy" manifold which was crappy handiwork too, but ran ok on my 750 and 920. Now I got a manifold from Lithuanian manufacturer VTC , which is perfectly manufactured , but doesnt offer equal lenght of the pipes. I run it with a Mikuni VM38 that I am very pleased with, because the standard settings work without configuration on my 1981 XV 750 SE. I asked Mikuni for jetting suggestions, they only slightly differ from the standard settings. Bike runs fine . Next thing will be a pancake air filter.

Would you happen to have a picture of a VTC-manifold? (Is that the one shown on TR1-Forum?)

Cheers,
Greg
