I did 4 carbs. 1 for a BW200 that is a runner, a BW200 parts bike, 1 for a KTM 450 parts bike and a 40mm CV from a 640 that now has a flat slide. The air filters are extras I have from my Huskies.

I agree with Scott. However, if you're a good rider, experiment with them.
I'd only caution that you don't mix a radial with a bias ply. It's weird and not consistent.
