They also invented TM-6's and TM Pro series and TMX's and TM smooth bores and so on. How do you miss an entire point over and over? TM Pro Seires are NOT TM's. They are TM Pro Series just like TM smooth bores are not TM's. They are TM smooth bores. BIG DIFF between TM smooth bores and TM's! Clarify.
Hello!

If you go and have a look at the Mikuni website, and you really should do that at least once, you won't find any of your self invented expressions like "regular" and "Smoothbore TMs".
You just will find TM-carbs and TM-4-stroke carbs.
And if it's an error to mention 4-stroke carbs in an airhead forum this is an error I'll repeat any time.

Finally, what I wanted to make clear in my last post in a roundabout way was, that I will not take part in one of your "Longest dick in town" debates.

Go on if you need it, I have better things to do.

Best regards,

RG

I removed the pump arms so the pumps do not function just like a lot of tuners do.
Hello!

I remember that you removed your arms, forgot that. Thanks for clearifying that.
But afair you always wrote you disabled the pump and gained power.
I reasoned it must be WOT high rpm power.
Anything else is hard/impossible to measure and even hard to estimate (just my opinion, don't bother).

But see, I asked prior to drawing any conclusion.
Good that we talked about.

Best regards,

RG

http://www.mikuni-topham.de/ENGLISHS...e_English.html

The owner of that company, Mr. Topham, is known for his outstanding support and most important for you: he is english.

Best regards,

It has been said there are no stupid questions. I used to agree until I met a few. Several of them have been of the "what is the best..." variety.

But it is simple. "I think X because Y". All of the opinions don't have to match. But I don't see any reason that it should devolve into weenie comparisons and a slap fight. Then you come along and posit that the original question was stupid and the slapfest is my fault.

I think I'll put the MacBook on Craigslist and go figure it out myself. At least there is civility in my shop and among my face-to-face friends. I am sorry that Al Gore even invented the internet. And Plaka, it is your fault... Or is it Supershaft's fault? Whoever has the littlest dick - its their fault.

Where's Dr.t? I am surprised he didn't show up? Dr.t and maybe a few others? They usually do when the BS gets rolling. Besides, I thought baiting mods was against The Big Rules but it seems to me that a lot of The Big Rules get broken around here on a regular basis and nothing is done about it. Personally, I try to follow them for a better forum.

Longest dick in town debates? Where in the world do you get that??? I just went back and re-read the thread. It's obvious to me that I am just trying to help readers know that there are completely different types of carbs under the TM moniker. That airbox snorkel will not work like that with TM's. The details of your posts very often don't add up. That's why I made a point of pointing that out so that readers won't get confused. That is readers that are interested in reading about and discussing carbs for airheads versus what the usuals usually go on about: Yours truely. Funny how not one single person has discussed the fact that not all TM carbs are the same basic design other than myself after you lumped them all up into the smooth bore series (at least in a response to me countering my comment regarding regular TM carbs, independent type floats, and stock airbox snorkels.

Website? I have a Mikuni Manual right beside my desk.

An old girlfriend gave me that nickname. She said it was because my bikes are shaft driven but we both knew better. Another girl friend nicknamed me billy club but I thought using that moniker would be too much about me and not enough about our bikes. You guys are bad enough on that front as it is!

I suppose we could call you Billie Pecker, but maybe that's too close to the truth?

They say that you can judge a person by their enemies. I sure hope so!

I still think all the personal comments should be saved for when you meet in person but I suspect that would take the wind out of a lot of sails around here. That sure would make this a better forum, however and it would save me a lot of typing about BS. Win/win as far as I can see?

Enemies?

To whom it may concern,

I don't understand what you are here for.

I wanted to discuss carbs.

Best regards,
