mikuni carbs

o.k., i found the name of the "other" carb that Zuk guys have been talking about, however, the only ones i can find look like they're made for ATVs and bikes?!?!!? do you know of any that will fit the Zuk, and will it outperform the stocker? how much work is involved with fitting it to my 88.5 Zuk?

Re: mikuni carbs

Mikuni is who makes the fuel injection system for Samurai's as well. Carbs that are made for ATV and snowmobiles won't have an accelerator pump. This translates into driveability problems, as there would be a huge flat spot while the throttles are open, and there are huge amounts of air, and no fuel available. Would this run, I dunno.

Re: mikuni carbs

Boy, oh boy,
There are so many options you can go with. You can try to find a late model zuk that already has FI and swap it in. You can modify a GM FI to fit. You can swap in a 1.6 ltr with FI. You can buy a pony carb, corolla carb, Niki carb, weber carb, and I am sure there are a few more. None of this is going to give you any real performance difference that I have heard of. Some set up are good for up hill and some for down hill. Some give low wnd and some high end. What are you looking for?

Re: mikuni carbs

just some more low end, and not so much stalling uphills...but i don't want to 180 the weber and stall going downhill either...i think i'm actually leaning toward exhaust work first...still deciding...

Re: mikuni carbs

The factory FI is great. With gears I can idle up and down anything. Even runs on its side[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: mikuni carbs

Mikuni made side drafts, I believe, which are very similar to Weber Side Drafts. There was one other Italian company, Dellorto that also made side drafts that fit the Samurai. You get 2 carbs, so one throttle bore per cylinder. When tuned well, they roar pretty good! And I understand they do well at angles too. Not like the down draft weber that is much more common. The draw back is the money. The sidedrafts are twice the price of a down draft, Ofcourse you do get 2 carbs! And much more power!
I think Samurai's were factory fuel injected as of '89 or '90. And I know Turbo City has a bolt on closed loop FI system for the Samurai, but it was 1200 bucks when I looked into it. That was a little steep for me.
Hope this helps
