Whats the smallest carb to run on a standard TS1 with JL pipe/or alternative pipe.im getting lousy mpg with a 30 delly. Was dynoed without panels,and of course it smokes like a steamtrain under half throttle. Im running an MB panel filter.

I know you asked about the smallest, I run a 35 TMX Mikuni, Taffspeed exhaust, 20x47 GP gearing, pulls like a train, when I had a standard tank it would be over 60 miles before it went onto reserve, i was speaking to mate tonight who runs a GP fitted with a imola kit and he said my TS1 is more economical than his imola.

If you run a TS1, you generally fit it for more performance, you will use more fuel, I know TS1`s will run on "small" carbs ie 30mm, but they were designed to run on 34mm or 35mm carbs,if you want to use less fuel sell the TS1 top end and buy a GP200 Indian barrel and piston, 22mm carb will give you at least 50% better consumption, there is an old saying " you don`t get something for nothing "

What MPG are you actually getting Jonno and how do you ride it?
If your current 30mm isn't needled and jetted right then lousy is to be expected and a worn carb, (there's a lot of em out there) is a piss in't wind.
TMX35's are really easy to set up and I find it the ultimate on economy and performance when combined with dual stage reed petals and a RAM air filter.
Good luck with whatever you chose. ;)

Resurrecting this old thread as I’ve been experimenting today with a small carb on a TS1 with an Exbox ST. Normally I run this TS1 in a S2 solo but its currently powering my S2 combo while I build a different engine for it. It’s a really torquey motor and a joy to ride with a 5 speed box pulling 4.6 final drive but it does have the usual TS1 splutter even with a casatronic ignition at around 4500 rpm and on solo you don’t really notice it but with the a sidecar it’s just where you don’t want it. With its PHBH30 It’s also using about twice as much fuel as when a solo, so I thought I’d try a PHBH26 that I’ve got spare for the hell of it after discussing with a mate at the D150 the other week. Guessing at 130, 53, AV266 and X7 p2 and 40 slide 300 float jet it’s really nice and smooth and doesn’t feel under powered nor does it feel lean. If anything a tad rich in higher revs. Plug is dark to milk chocolate at half throttle. I’m not 100% convinced yet but it’s an experiment and I’ll do more plug chopping to be certain. I thought I’d post this in case anyone else was wondering
