Does anyone out there know a bit about these beasts . I just scored a pair of 41's ( actually think Ive been ripped off ). They are split and there is only one accellerator pump ( on the front carb ) and a small hose linking it to the back carb , which sorta makes sense, just that all the pix I have seen show one pump per carb
Image
The other issue is that there seems to be a bit of wear in the throttle shaft/ carb body ... is there a replacable bush in there ? And where do you get o/haul kits (every time I look for any sort of FCR kit I get install kits inc carbs for various bikes ) I need float bowl seals acellerator pump seal and diaphram and the little piece of plastic that sits above the ball valve in the acc pump . These carbs were supposed to be newly overhauled before I got them , but plainly havn't and as Im sick and tired of being fucked about and lied to Ill just sort them myself . If any one can point me to a service manual or even a decent parts diagram I be grateful :)

Yahooo! thanks G, this will keep me busy for a while :) . Bit of a story
I bought them un seen ( and stupidly assumed they would be a joined pair like the mikuni's ) and was told by the seller that he would " re kit/overhaul them , I then waited 7 months for parts to turn up ( usual for him , just doesn't order/ forgets to order then blames suppliers ), finally went in and threw a wobbly and got the carbs , seperate , and obviously never been worked on , but by then I didnt care . And now , lookin at these things Im wondering just how practical they would be on a street bike and Im thinkin I'll just go with the original plan to fit the SS mikunis to the paso , just gotta sort some sort of air filter(s) for them.
Thanks again for the info G , much appreciated :) :) :)

I bought a set of float bowl needle jets for the leaking ones on my Bimota from California Cycleworks (http://www.ca-cycleworks.com). I believe Chris Kelly (the owner) can get you anything you probably want for those carbs.

As for the connected ones and having two accelerator pumps, the ones on my Bimota only has one accelerator pump and has the crossover hose to the other carb. Unfortunately, this is the only picture I have of the carbs, but you can see that the one float bowl that is pictured does not have an accelerator pump on it and you can see the hose still attached...
