Hi,
I recently bought a 97 monster 750 and need a little help. It has problems starting when cold. It has no choke as the carbs have been replaced by a race set which my mechanic has told me is the problem. He said the carbs are not improving proformance and may be hindering it. Anyway to get to my question, he has suggested I go back to original carbs. I dont have the originals and would like any info on the carbs that came out on it, suitable replacements etc. Any help appreciated

Cheers

I have a brand new set that I've put up in the classifieds. They are set up for an M900. Bought them for a 750 project as spares before tearing apart the originals. I'm like that since you never know what you'll find. You will need to get a set of 132.5 (most people swap for 135 anyways) push in main jets. I installed the carbs on the 750, it was having idling problems, to see if it would make any change. The bike idled perfectly. I couldn't rev it since the carbs were way over jetted. They've had about 2 minutes of run time and less than 2 cups of gasoline in them ever. They will bolt on and not need to be synched. I will include the choke cable and overflow bottles. $200 shipped in the US. Will ship outside but only after Paypal clears and shipping prices/terms are agreed upon. Send a PM with your email address if you want pics or more info.

The carbs you have are probably FCR flatslides, they are VERY good and VERY sought after. If your mech can't tune them, find someone who can, or, if you decide to switch, sell them on Ebay.
Or, you can always give me those pieces of junk!!
What size are they?
