Brother from another mother

hc243102
Not a Honda, or a 750.  76' KZ400 last time running unknown.  Has a pair of Mikuni carbs, that I believe are VM34's, which I get the feeling is waaay too big for this bike. If this is the case then I'm pondering using one carb to feed both cylinders. Anybody else been down this road?

I'm guessing that means they have 34mm throats? That doesnt sound too far off. 34mm per 200cc cylinder. Figuring a SOHC is 184 cc per cylinder using...what are they...30mm bodies?

Are those higher revving engines ? That could explain it.

Looks like a fun bike though. Good luck with your project. Looks like it already found a rider.

Cycle x sells a kit for our SOHC fours that powers all four cyclinders with two VM34's. I may contact them and see if they'll just sell me one.

I had looked through their downloadable PDF catalog and couldn't find any intakes, perhaps I overlooked them. 11th hour industries makes a kit but Iz trying to see if I could find one a lil cheaper. Seen some braze their own outve copper, but were having sweating issues. I really just want to get it running as cheap as possible.
