Alot of racers use mikuni carbs off snowmobiles and motorcycles - so it should be possible- only problems are an adapter to mount it to the motor and linkage- youll need to be a lil creative.

Most likely for the linkage youll need a foot or hand throttle - but youd also be disabling the governer ( carb would need to be mounted up higher on the motor) which i dont suggest, unless the motor had been properly built for the higher revs ( IE billet flywheel and internals).

Id either save it for another twin you come across or look into a motorcycle/scooter type carb.

I bot a couple scooter carbs at a flea market for $15 each- sometime i plan on adapting one to a twin and one to a single cylender motor - just too many projects on my plate.
