Running from demons in WNY
The throttle was an original old dual cable unit. I had to modify the cable spool stop so it would twist a bit more.But it was still light on travel. My rider complained about the excessive twist, so I changed things. Now it's a single cable throttle with a splitter and a 1/4 turn twist throttle.
The splitter was advertised as having enough travel for bigger carbs....NOT....More modifications. The slides actually top out on the carb lids just a hair before totally clearing the throttle bore.... I'm thinking the slides need to be totally clear of the throttle bore for full air flow.
I do enjoy making up my own cables.......

Ok,taking my thread back grin

I cried to my rider and he is buying a set of Mikuni 34 MM TM's for the bike..... cry

And the question...Anyone have a ball park jetting sizes ?

I found a close bike shop with an older Dyno-Jet. He says I can do brief full throttle runs but it's not like the Mustang Dyno we used last year that the bike can be run wide open for one minute...

Hillbilly, I haven't run them on a 650,so the best I can do is say I would expect the jet sizes to be close to what you were running in the Amals,with the only big difference being the pilot which is usually smaller than you would expect. I thinking a 20 or 25. Jack

This might get you close, the 38s jetting was close for my BSA.

HB Sorry I didn't get back sooner. If you are still going with the TM's here are my jets etc.
NJ Q-2
N 6DH7
M 210 - 250
P smallest I could get. 12.5 I think. Mine runs best with the air adjustment screws removed.
Hopefully I will be ready for the first meet. My stuff is still all apart! PRT

Tom, that's BSA jetting for dual TM 34's? grin Thanks,the info you and Jack gave will get me close.

My bike is together and running well with the Amals. But I don't know if it'll be tuned properly with the Mikunis for the first meet. My rider pays for the bulk of expenses but he's gotten into road racing, money for lSR is tight. But we will be there. Look forward to seeing you...

Yup, that's what I'm using. Can't say for sure if that's what yours wants but the 'standard' set up is unsuitable.
Just found out I may have a schedule conflict for May. If so, will shoot for June. PRT
