It's on 6 x CV bike carbs. Anyone else have these fitted ?
Last post on that thread is intriguing ...
Fitted them to kit cars before. They have potential to give smooth power and strong power(very narrow inlet). The real men fit FCR's though.
The shells are restored in France.....
The MZR cars? I think you're slightly behind the curve there.
The 'M' in MZR stands for Martin (Ryland), who did a lot of the work on the early MZR cars whilst he was living in France. I believe Martin was also doing work at the MZR workshops in Bradford, and was at least shuttling back and forth between France and UK. Might be back in the UK semi-permanently now?
You mean like these? Mikuni HSR45 flat slides. Great carbs, smooth power, great throttle response and more economical than DCOE45 Webers.
Yes, although the more power hungry(who can take the fuel usage) Kehin FCR41
Alan is on the ball (as nearly always).
Martin prepared the latest Samuris and began working on Rahails' (the 'R' in MZR') whilst still in France. But two years ago he moved permanently back to the South West and works permantly with Rahail in Bradford 'chez MZR'. Since two years therefore ALL the work on the MZR cars has been performed in the UK.
I'll be a better judge of his crasftsmanship when my car is returned following a 100% restoration under his very talented hands (and head).
Yep; been fitted by Martin on a car (L28 with worked head and uprated cam) previously running with 2" SUs - I'm not convinced that they're better !
They're CV's not FCR's
...hmmm, I've been subtlely edited....
