The ones I used were off a GSX-R 750 M. It surprises me that they didnīt just drop in... You need to use the inlet manifolds off a GSX 750 F which are the same stud pattern as the head, these also run a 36mm carb..
Ball park jetting :
Mains = 172
Needles = 1 clip richer than std (raised)
Pilots = 45 all though I think 43īs would allow bike to run nicer
Pilot/Air screws = 3 turns out from lightly seated.
Now, as stated, these are "ball-park" only... Mine was also running a full RS-3 race system in the end and K & N filterīs You simply have to get the bike on a dyno to tune it correctly and itīs time/money consuming to do so, I spent $700 on mine in dyno time and that was at mates rateīs !!!
The other alternative to consider is to remain with the std carbs and airbox, but re-jet and modify them... I honestly canīt see why useable gains of up to 10 to 12 hp, right were you want it, in the midrange canīt be had with the right person spannering on the bike...
Ultimately you wonīt end up with the same rear wheel figure as mine, but you will have a very progressive/usable power curve... Mine was, in all honesty, quite "top-end" biased in itīs power delivery which suited my style of riding just fine, but, may not suit yours...
Some food for thought, if, nothing else...
