I don't think you'll get anything more out of the 28 mm carb. While I don't think it'll hurt anything, the WD cam and small inlet valve is just not going to allow for enough breathing to justify it. They really run well with the 626 Concentric and it's pretty easy to set up.

One could always put in a 8.75 compression piston, a Victor cam, and a B44 round barrel head that takes a bigger carb and has a bigger intake valve. All pretty easy things to do. That should give you some more pep!

^^^True dat^^^

But then it wouldn't really be a WD anymore, would it?

BTW, this may be of interest: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-BRITISH-OIL-...ies&vxp=mtr

The WD B40s had a long spacer between the carb & the head . These were not needed with an alloy head but the WD still had memories of M20's boiling fuel in the carb.
Now these spacers have a hole in them to allow fuel to drain out instead of running into the pot and causing a hydraulic lock ( or worse).
To compensate for the regulated "Air Leak" the WD's were jetted very rich.
Fit a 626 and you are laughing. Put a 900 series float bowl with the drain plug in it and you will be laughing even louder.

Trevor, I don't see how this spacer could have been installed on the GB bikes as the original carb is quite long and it really couldn't be much closer to the airbox. Maybe models for other militaries were different?

Also, I think all the newer 600 and 900 carbs use the drain plug style float bowl.

i just orderd a 626 from brand new so hope it will run good, and still a 350cc bike is not one you "race" on its just for transport and style not for preformance if i wanted preformance i would have bought myself a kawazaki 9000000cc with trippel OCH or somthing hehe

And you will have the bike running in Alingåbro on June 1-3, perhaps? (If so, I guess it will not be the only WDB40 there...)
