Odd pisser that I've run across.
1970 Commando.
T/S Amal is stamped 932 bar R300
D/S is 932 bar.

Had the bowls off and decided to zero out everything to check new throttle cables setup.
Screwed the throttle stops right out and dropped the slides/needles in.
T/S needle sits .05 " lower than the D/S needle.
After measuring parts it looks like the body itself is the culprit.

R300 vs not?

750 Commando uses normal 4 stroke needle and spray tube, its the 850 that has the special needle and the cutaway spray tube. Normally a 300 and 301 932 come with standard 4 stroke needle and spray tube, but lots can happen over the years and both needle and spray tube can be changed.

The pre-Combat RH1 cylinder head intake port size (if standard?) is 1.1/8", 28.5mm...

...and the standard inlet manifolds taper down from 1.3/16" (30mm) at the carb end to 1.1/8"...

... so there's probably little or nothing to be gained by using 932 (32mm) carbs with a standard "1970" cylinder head and inlet manifolds.
