Mikuni VM26 Carb
Posted 13 November 2016 - 07:58 PM
I recently read an article In which you recommended 26mm carbs for older Urals. Would you possibly have any starting points for carb settings (needle, pilot, main, float)? I am at 1500 ft of elevation.
Thank you in advance

Setting slides for synk ,take the air boots off and raise the slides to the top of the boars and make them the same so you feel them just at the top. This is for full throttol.
Idle is a little harder if you don't have vacuum ports .
Clip on the needle start in the middle if it stumbles off Idle raise the needle and see how it reacts
Jets I am not sure start with what you have and see if it runs OK the plugs should be a tan color
There is a Mikuni tuning guide on the net for VM carbs that is detailed

I use to drill out the flange to 8mm ,but I have found 8mmx6mm stepped studs , and have had no issue , I also reccomend the phenolic heat dams and 4 intake gaskets to reduce heat transfer from the head to the rubber of compliance fitting.
I do have a 650 engine that has spigot mounted Mikunis and steel compliance fittings thoes might be the 26mm mentioned , the carb tops are missing , I would need to check my distributor to see if tops and rings are avalable.
