What's involved with 785 carbs on a 1050?
What would all be involved with putting 785 carbs onto a 1050 besides the obvious need for different intake manifolds? Would it be worth it?

You'll need to get different linkages, as the spacing is different. When running the HSP manifolds you have, the carbs are turned 90* from the way the are normally, so it's not a shaft to shaft setup anymore. You'll also need to get a different cable wheel and support bracket. Sirhc claimed they were worth 1 mph or so on his modified 1200.

I put the 44mm MIkunis on my 1200 SLX way back when...I just had Randy do all the leg work and he sent me a set of 44mm Mikunis with Tau Ceti F/A's, intake manifolds and proper linkage...It also required a PRO785 throttle cable and I had to block off the oil injection...I then had to play around to get the jetting right but that's to be expected...
Not all that big of a deal IMO and there were substantial gains over the stock 40's / 38's...
The 44's to me always seemed like the middle ground on a single piper...Maybe you could get more out of bigger carbs but mileage would suffer...Now if you were planning to go triples then the 44's will just ultimately not be enough (unless you're going to stick with the stock porting...IMO)

GroupK will do them for $35each, if you send them completely bare carbs, so all they have to do is chuck them up and bore them. The $400 tag is if you send them the rack as is and they have to do all of the disassembly/reassembly and jetting. You can then run LAKO stacks, and have a pretty nice setup for little money invested. Keep in mind, those ported 009s like fuel in the midrange (mid jets)...

What size do the carbs end up at after group k gets done with them? Also keep me posted on what you see for gains with the 48's. It's still not out of the question yet. That's why i bought the hot seat manifolds, just in case.
