    Are the intakes set up for mikuni or keihin ?Will the stock keihin carbs work if they are jetted properly? What are you going to run for F/A's ?

    Yes the intakes are for Mikuni's
    to me 40's are Way to small there a great fuel economy carb but not a Preformance carb
    And i'm not worried about fuel economy

    I've run the 44's and 46's on all my 1200 tripppled boats.
    The hit is a little harder with the 46's but the fuel economy is much better with the 44's.
    My guess is the 46's for bouys and 44's for enduarnce stuff??

    44mm Novis

    Plenty of performance for the early style pipes, good fuel economy, and they will stay tuned well.. Keep the bigger carbs for the better pipes.

    Novi carbs make better power and accellerate better than the OEM carbs, due to more precise fuel metering..

    You can alway toss on a set of 50mm Blackjacks????

    fuel consumption

    since switching the virage from the 40's to 42's it uses more gas.not so much cruising but wot is noticeable.

    40's

    my 40's ran really good,but i never got them right,tuning 3 jets per carb is such a pain in the ass.not to mention needing a special pop off spring.seems like your target rpm range is around 7000 with slxh pipes.
