Carb question?

Has anyone found and or done a SUCCESSFUL swap for the stock XT600 (YDIS) carb? Maybe Yamaha Raptor 660 carbs or Keihin CR's?

I have!

Rappy 660!

Still have to fine tune it once I get the electrics sorted as it's still just a tiny bit overrich.

Let us know what it takes (jetting, etc.). The YDIS carbs have limited support (parts, rebuild kits) here in the U.S. & I'd like to swap them out if a reasonable alternative exists.

Keihin I believe, cvk31.

Stock jetting aint to far of for a stock bike. Raise the needles 1mm and take it from there. I needed to up my pilot and main jets slightly aswell.
