Adapting Mikuni to fit early 5 spd sherp/Alpina

Recommended Posts

Asking for a friend...for those who by necessity or design choose to install a mikuni carb on an earlier Alpina or Sherpa T what have you found to adapt the airbox side 1.75"o.d. carb flange to the 2" i.d. rubber airbox intake hose ?Thanks Alpthusiast?

When I put a KT250 VM26 Mikuni on my Cota 348 (MK2 AMAL concentric) I made a spacer ring from plastic electrical conduit which just happened to have the perfect diameters.

You can also use heat shrink tape. I used that for a while on one of my Sherpas. I`m not sure how long it will last for but it does work.
