Hi Nick, without taking it off I am assuming it would be a 38mm bore to replace the GP carb

Assume nothing, DPO's (dumb previous owners) have no fear fitting different carbs on left and right sides of twins, fitting the wrong one to a single is even easier.

That's Me!

i fit anything to anything to see whether it works.

having said that, if it doesn't work i'll mess with it until it does, or i'll take it back off.


every day you do not take a chance is a day of your life that you will never get back.

I don't think that would be the case in this instance. The previous owner was very fastidious on what he did, so lets assume it is a right hand 38mm carb.

Peek down the intake with the throttle open. describe what you see of the top of the brass outlet where the needle slides in and out.

Does the carb have an scree adjuster for the slide, for an idle throttle opening? (There are versions- smoothbores -that don't).

I go with the 'assume nothing' view - e.g. 36mm Mikunis will give the same power as a 38 on a GS, though the mid-range is allegedly better.

No generalisation is wholly true, not even this one.
