Hey guys,
I’m thinking of changing my carbs on my ‘72 Daytona to 928’s from the 626’s are you able to open the manifolds to 28mm from 26mm without cracking them? And if anyone out there done it how does it run.
Cheers, Aaron

The T100R was already one of the fastest twins at the time so I would be reluctant to change the carbs. However if you are insistent on fitting bigger carbs do nothing more than open the first 5mm of the port to a taper, change nothing else as if you open the whole port you will loose more than than you started with in the first place.

Read Roland Pikes memoirs and the development of the goldstar and you will learn a lot.

The late bsa spitfires also did this with their port as did the early small port twin carb heads.

The daytona does not need bigger carbs than 26mm for use at anything less than 7000 rpm.
The inlet ports and valves are big on that motor anyway, look elsewhere for performance improvements.
Bigger carbs will spoil the motor for street use. A good exhaust setup and higher compression with
worked pistons will be a better 'bang for your buck'. I had one that was a 100 mph bike and standard,
what more are you looking for? They were one of the best motors triumph produced in many people's
opinion.

For measure I rode a Daytona with 930’s on it
Assumed it would be terrible..it ripped! I was very suprised how snappy it was. Not saying it was correct but it worked.
The owner had aggressive slides in them to recoup the throttle response but with my 180lbs on it just before shift the bike would lift the front wheel in 1st.
Engine was stock..exhaust headers stock with straight through cocktail shakers and stock gearing.

Way too much Carb..but it ran ok


...no idea what your doing
