The Mikuni TM38 Non Pump type TM Flatslide carburetor for your Yamaha SR TT or XT 500 is a step up in performance over the VM Roundslide Mikuni options where the cost of a TM Pumper carb can’t be justified for what ever reason. These have for decades been the economical replacement carb of choice for Honda XR600 and XR650 riders who have worn out their OEM carbs or are just over some of their inherent problems. All this means getting the full enjoyment out of your motorcycle has never been so easy, say goodbye to hard starting, hesitations and flatspots. These Mikuni carburetors like the VM will not adapt to your stock air-box where the separate purchase of a Paper or foam POD air-filter is required. The kit comes with a new rubber engine mounting flange to move the carb closer to the cylinder head plus a 1/4 turn quick action throttle and a nylon lined cable with a 90 degree lower fitting for the tight clearance on some models. There are jets provided that must be changed as well as spares for fine tuning. 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.
You will instantly experience better throttle response, improved acceleration and performance. If chasing optimum performance check out our TM36 or TM40 Pumper Carb options.
