    can you graft flat slide carbs together
    Posted by cool storm on Friday, December 18, 2015 7:25 PM

    With the old problem of the "green" slides chipping and the second problem being the very expensive fix, I would ask for some input on a proposed idea.

    Can you take a couple sets of 40mm rack style carbs off a twin pull them apart and make a set for a tripple. I know that this would entail popping plugs and perhaps some drilling and maybe resizing the spacer sleeves. Then the tripple throttle shaft and choke shaft would be used. other than that is there a reason I haven't thought of that this will not work?

    If it did work I can have a set of 40mm flat slides on my xcr for about $200 probably worth 2-3 hp and I get the black slides all at the same time.

    yes, but it would be easier just to bore your carbs. the 40mm's will fit tight in a 38mm boot and you might have to customize the spacing for the throttle rod, bolts, bolt sleeves, fueling t's, and choke rod.
