Going  faster has never been so easy, say goodbye to hard starting, irregular idle, hesitations, and flatspots caused by old worn out carbs.

This dual Mikuni VM34 carburetor kit is easily fitted to your  Honda CX500 or CX650 twin using your OEM manifolds and the improvement is instant. This kit includes either our shorter profile Oval POD filters (where if wanting to check clearances behind the carb, the back face of the filter when mounted will be 122mm back from the opening edge of your rubber inlet boot) or the other option is to change these out for our 70mm long regular PODS (clearance measurement for length on this set up is 150mm), also there’s the choice of either red or black filters. Both suit and look great if wanting to try to work in with your side covers or have the naked bike bobber look. The carbs are fitted with a pair of CNC machined silver anodized carb outlet sleeves, enlarging the carb spigot OD size to 46mm so as to match and fit into your OEM rubber boots. The nylon lined 2-1 premium quality throttle cables have a 70 degree lower outlets and a top fitting to suit your OEM throttle housing.

These carbs come fitted with the most commonly suited jets for Australian fuel and conditions as well as spares for fine tuning the top end at WOT. Climate, altitude and fuel density from different octane fuels have varying effects on final fine tuning as does cam, exhaust and cylinder head porting etc. Please do contact us if you believe further fine tuning is required and we can guide you through the process. Once tuned a VM Mikuni will not go out of tune for many years.

If chasing some more performance we also have available this kit using our Mikuni VM34 which is from the same Mikuni factory aftermarket and racing division, family of Non-pumper TM’s we have sold and been loved by Honda XR600 owners for decades and is a big step up in performance over the VM series carbs offered elsewhere. You will instantly experience the improvement.


If wishing to modify your existing Honda CX cables to suit the Mikuni VM 34 or use a different air filter rather than the options provided or maybe want a cable set with quick action 1/4 turn throttle, you can purchase the carburetor, tuner jet kit (selecting the jets required to make this carb run on your engine) and or what ever other components you want individually by following the directions below.

On the main menu to the left of the page, hover over the carb listing for Mikuni VM carbs non-pump and then select VM34 from the drop down list. When clicking on any individual size Mikuni carb from the drop down list it will put you into a page showing not only the Mikuni carb itself but also any items relevant to that carb, being Mikuni jets, Mikuni flanges, Mikuni carb tuning kits, Mikuni cables , Mikuni throttles, Mikuni air-cleaners and a range of Mikuni carb to OEM air box adapters etc to also suit. This also makes alternate jet selection easy for you if you have your own spec or wish to purchase extra jets as only the type of  jets that fit that particular carb are shown.
Click on the carb itself if wanting to view the full details and or to make your purchase. Then back arrow back in the carbs main page and go into the tuner kits, which show in the sales drop down list the jetting kits we have for confirmed suitable engines for that particular carb. Again thoroughly read the tuner kit description.

    Just a word of thanks for a great Mikuni carb kit, purchased through eBay. Since we have 10% ethanol in gasoline, here in California, I needed to adjust the carbs that now work exceptional. I hadn’t ridden the bike in about 10 years, so it got new tires, oil, antifreeze, front master-cylinder…and more. The stock carbs had not been adjusted for the ethanol-gas and didn’t want to idle consistently.
    With your kit I opted to use the stock airbox with a K&N filter, and made adapters from exhaust pipe tubing. I used the 210 MJ, the needle in the 5th notch down and adjusted the pilot screws for smoothest idling, all else is as the kit was sent. The plug is an NGK D8EA. It starts right up on the chokes and will idle as soon as they are pushed off. Using premium gas of 91 octane is what I’ve always used. I put 1 Oz. of Motul caster based oil, per tank full, as a substitute for lead since our gas is no-lead…smells good too!
    Thanks again,
    Tom Clark

    I have a pair of Mikuni VM34’s on a CX500 and after adding a cross pipe between the exhausts headers it backfired on both acceleration and deceleration. Even though I had not purchased the carbs from Mikunioz, Tom helped me out by suggesting I look for an exhaust leak which I found at one of the exhaust ports on one fo the heads. A new packing fixed the problem and Mikunioz will be getting my business in the future! Thanks Tom!
