    This is a almost brand new carburettor that I got from Bergos Racing Team about a year ago, I had it on my XR600R for a couple of rides and it was phenomenal in performance and mileage. I sold the XR600 already and this candy is the leftover.

    This carburettor was 12500 THB plus shipping 2500 and import tax from Thailand another 2500, so altogether it was over 17 k Baht.

    I know those carbs are great upgrades to XR600R, XR650 and DR650 and for sure many other bikes, but it was jetted for a Honda XR600R 1993 model.

    Here's the original ebay link:

    I ran the bike only 3 or 4 times with this carburettor on, then I started rebuilding the bike and at the end sold it.

    I am asking 9500 THB for the Mikuni TM 40. Please inbox me if you need pictures I will gladly email them to you.

    One of these XR650Rs is in dire need of a new carb. Convinced me to NEVER buy a large displacement bike without e-start!
    I've passed your ad on to the owner. Best of luck!

    True story. We're going around the world on two XR650Rs (if interested, google XR650RTW) and my mate's stock carb is shot. The slider arm died on him and the part is nowhere to be ordered via Honda, US, Europe and Japan are sold out. We really are in need of help here. I am using the TM40 on my bike and it's awesome. If you are willing to part with your Mikuni in our favour, we would very very much appreciate it. The price is okay. Please?

    I'll take it 100%. It'll be helping my good friends that are riding around the world. If you could please contact me or Tony bkk with details on how to pay it would be much appreciated. MANY THANKS!

    Hi Satonic,

    So I see you are in BKK. Do you have someone in Chiang Mai, that I could give the carb? Money transfer is easiest way I guess. I could ship the carb to you, but must be insured package by EMS and this will be quiet expensive I guess. Let me know how we proceed, whatever way is convenient for you, should work for me too.
    Thanks a lot. Rudi

    Hi folks, first of all a big THANKS to Tony and Jake for helping out here! :D :D You two really are a big help. My mate and me are travelling on those two XRs. (Google XR650RTW if you like...) I could not post yesterday, for some reason I disconnected whenever trying to submit my reply. Would you have an estimate what the shipping costs are and how long it might take? I'll check with Tony and Jake if they might know someone who's in Chiang Mai at the Moment and will be in BKK in the next few days. We're planning to leave early next week and will have to wait for the carb in any way. PS: Rudi, I would not know you from the German xr-forum.de, would I? Thanks a lot, Juri

    Hi Rudi!

    The owners of the XR650R's pictured above really want your carb. One of their bikes still has the stock Honda carb and it's FUBAR!

    They are having trouble logging in to GT-R so either Satonic or I would like to complete the purchase and have you EMS the carb to us here in Bangkok ASAP as they need to leave the country soon.

    Can you give me a call or send me an email with your payment details?

    You saved the day with that carb Rudi! Johannes' XR650R is now a cinch to start. Previously I was advocating burning it to the ground and taking the insurance I hated kick starting that beast so much!!!:take-that:

    Tony I am more then happy to help out some fellow bikers, that Mikuni is a great investment for those bikes, I just ordered a brand new one for my XR400 just a bit smaller a TM36, when I drop the 400 it is very hard to start, that carb will help that. Keihin make great racing carbs but very expensive and Mikuni are at the same level but a little cheaper. Great to hear that someone could make use of it. Cheers Rudi
