Mikuni Carb Conversion

I'm interested in doing a bike carb conversion - anyone know which ones to use?

Regards,

Bogg Bros are the guys to use. They fabricate manifolds, fit and tune carbs (including bike carbs). I'm sure they will recommend a carb, particularly if you are getting them to build you a manifold or using them to tune the carbs.

I'm not entirely sure why you would want to go this route, though? You'd be unlikely to see gains over a weber or dellorto. You may also have to spend some time (hence money) getting the tuning right.
