i'm switching the carb on a cuyuna 440 from the walbro to a mikuni from a artic cat 440 of the same vintage(1979).my question is will the jetting be at least close?the mikuni is a 34b i believe.
bikes till it snows,sleds till it rains.

I just switched out a Tillotson with a 34mm Mikuni on a single cyl 292. The Mikuni came of an indy 500, The main jet was a 220. I had a problem with the 292 revving too long while coming off the throttle. Changed the main to 260 (cuz thats what i had) and it helped quite a bit. Still working on the fine tune though. No snow here in CT yet can't do the old test & tune deal. Gonna bring the old tub to VT and rip up the woods round camp to fine tune. I also put a modified stinger expansion chamber on it. Man the thing sounds pretty sweet.
