I’ve heard rumors that it’s not worth it because the stock carb works well enough and you just have to figure out the each specific bike likes to start.  While I agree that a Mikuni pumper carb is not a necessity, it does make starting the bike easier and gives you significantly more instant power. With the factory carb, I had to complete a strict ritual to successfully cold start.  It usually took from 2-5 solid kicks after pumping the kickstand about 12 times with the decomp lever depressed and finding TDC. After the Mikuni was installed, I did not have to “prime” the fuel system and it only took one kick cold!!  I also felt a huge difference in performance.  In my opinion, it was well worth the 400!  If you are on the fence about it, I say pull the trigger.
