I was asking Cygnus about building or retrofitting a set of custom velocity stacks for my new Mikuni's, and we figured we'd just start posting up ideas outside of PM in an effort to get anyone interested involved.
For those that don't know, I've been running 34mm quad CV carbs on my car for a little over a year now.
While the current setup performs great, and gives excellent throttle response, they're just too small for the current motor work. I can feel them choking out at the top end.
so, I've decided to bump up to 40mm Mikunis from a Yamaha R1. I figure these should be more than enough carb for all of my current motor work and some extra.
However the problem is that the carb don't come with Velocity stacks like my old set, and the velocity stacks from the R1 are just really short and plastic.
Here's what the Mikunis look like.
What I'm hoping to do is find something that I can easily be removed. Similar to how the stock velocity stacks are installed. That way I can run pod filters on the street like I do currently, and just swap out to stacks whenever I go racing.
ideas? suggestions? questions or comments?
