A commom problem with Mikunis is not their performance but the lack of air cleaners that fit without adapters, until now. I took the carb right off my buddy Chris' bike and told him my plan:
Drill and tap four 10-32 blind holes into the carb and mount my air cleaner directly to it. Easy right? Actually it was. Second and third photo shows the carb with CV adapter that doesn't help at all to hold the a/c in place and requires the breather bracket to hold the whole assembly together. This usually adds 1/2" to the width of the a/c and when you're a tall guy with forwards it sucks. So This was the reasoning behind trimming the extra fat. It came out perfect and clears all linkage as you can see here in the first photo. PIZZA,PIZZA.
