    Of course they do, silly me, I was obviously thinking of something else
    Right I`ve actually checked this out with Suzuki GB as I`ve known the head of Technical there for donkeys years. Suzuki do not supply this part and never have. I also checked out TTS who are the big Suzuki tuning people in the UK and they know of no pattern part either.
    Looks like you are looking for good second hand carbs.
    Plenty of bikes used these carbs
    GS 500
    DR 650
    DR 750/800
    GSXR 7501988-95
    GSXR 1100 1986-97
    GSX 600F 1988-2006
    GSX 750F 1989-2006
    GSX 1100F 1988-94
    GSX 1100G 1990-92
    RF 600
    RF 900
    Bandit 1200
    I think also GSXR/Bandit 400 1988-95

    Thanks . Hee... these BST33ss are really painfull. I still have air leak some where. I have to put original exhaust on, because i wasn't able to adjust the idle with racing produro. And DR750 (1988-89 models) carbs have pressed in idle jet! Newer have threads on idle jets. My bike still has too lean idle. Everything is in factorysettings now... and not workin.

    I want those mikuni flat sildes!

    I`m being very restrained these days, I did have 26 at one point, including 8 DR`s, but I have rationalised my collection just a trifle.
    The Gixxer is very quick...........and exceedingly dull, so it`s up for sale very soon
    Next project is a DR 750 off roader using a TS 250ER fuel tank and junking the twin tanks and plastics etc

    Might be of interest to someone. As the drum brake on my 750SJ was so feeble I`ve decided to convert it to disc. I also wanted to convert to a 530 chain as there are too many horror stories of chains snapping (I`ve had several years ago) so I`ve used a GSX 600F rear wheel/disc/sprocket carrier etc mated to a GSXR Slingshot rear caliper and slabby 1100 brake arm. It`s got a BT 020 on the rear, though I could use a Tourance, but the 020 was sitting doing nothing. Braking and handling are greatly improved. If I knew how to load pictures I`d post up a few.

    With all that stuff in the shed he has to start "finding" it 2 days before he wants to actually "ride" it:1drink

    Aapo,

    If the carb sliders are actually a BMW part (great detective work BTW), is it still less expensive to get the flatsides from Stefan?

    I'm being bored waiting for the UPS truck. Working the next two days so that will help. More modding/testing fun next week.
