Going fast has never been so easy, say goodbye to hard starting, hesitations and flatspots. This Mikuni VM36 has for years been the popular performance upgrade for VMX racing and is easily fitted to your Yamaha 500cc SR, TT or XT. The fitment of the provided outlet mounting flange moves the carb slightly forward enabling it to better clear the frame and accommodate the VM36’s 43mm spigot. This carb will not fit the standard air-box requiring the separate purchase of your preferred air-filter type. The Yamaha OEM Push/Pull throttle cables will not fit this carb so included in the kit is a new throttle cable and a 1/4 turn quick action throttle. On models with vacuum operated fuel taps there is no allowance for your hose connection on the mounting flange or carb. Most people will change out the tap for a non vacuum type. There are jets provided that must be changed as well as spares for fine tuning the main jet circuit doing WOT tests. Climate, altitude and fuel density from different octane fuels all have varying effects on final fine tuning as does cam, exhaust and cylinder head porting etc. For this reason we have included what we have found to be a range of jets to allow you to tune to most variables using Australian fuels.
At Mikunioz, for over 30 years, we have been constantly checking and where necessary upgrading our jetting specs as fuel quality changes. Regular fuel in the USA is 85 octane or 91 in their premium brands which have numerous additives and blends added (basically smells and drys like wood varnish) which results in a totally different jetting spec and product performance. This carb as supplied from the factory will never work on this bike and requires a total re-jet as supplied loose with your carb.
Unlike many motorcycle manufacturers’ purpose modified versions (generally modified to comply with emission laws for worldwide sales), these Mikuni factory VM and TM carburetors are both 2 and 4 stroke compatible and are regarded by the Mikuni factory aftermarket racing division to be the best performing version of these carburetors ever made.
For VMX racers these are the most popular high performance singles carburetors in the sport of motorcycling. Mikuni’s VM Series round slide single carburetors have proven themselves as the performance standard for use in any single cylinder motorcycle and ATV applications for motocross, enduro and trail riding, to flat track racing and road racing on both 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines.
Performance features for the Mikuni VM Series Carburetors include a large selection of bore sizes for increased fuel mixture flow to match engine modifications. And the Mikuni VM Series offers a wide range of tuning components to allow precise fuel mixture metering in any application, at any throttle setting, under any riding conditions.
