Will TM36 Mikuni carb fit on KLR650?

Recommended Posts

Not sure.  I don't have the measurements of the VM38 or OEM KLR and I never added them to the project Blog.  And no longer own either KLR. I'm sure the jetting coould be modified to work, but adapting to the carb bell/air rubber might be tricky.

Why? Not much an upgrade to the keihin. And smaller. Just mot sure you'd get enough flow at higher rpms. Generally a smaller carb will help low and take away from top

Definitely wouldn't be any benefit to the swap . The CVK 40 will flow better , if the 36 was a pumper carb it MAY improve bottom end but at a pretty good topend loss . If your wanting performance go with a FCR40 or 41 , but deal with mpg loss generally . I have a new 40mm Lectron that will bolt up and improve things , but not close to being cheap.
