a buddy got his carb back from serdrum this week and i measured it last night, so now im wondering where and how the bore is measured.

the cag was going to be bored to 42mm

the back of the carb (air filter side) measures almost 44mm (43.97)
the front of the carb measures 42.98mm

i didnt have anything with me to measure the center ring

so how is a tapper bored carb measured?

Funny you ask this because I just got mine back from sredrum as well. Mine measured 42.65 on the front and 44.45 on the filter side. I was wondering the same thing.

Carb bore size 42mm should be 42mm on the inside side of the carb then its tapered out bigger to ur intake and then bored to match the head side...

in order togo bigger on inside u need a new bille center piece (which im sure u guys know)..

its all about the inside of the carb by the slide..even a 39mm or a 44 mm can have the same size openings on the intake and head side as a 42mm ..

catch my drift..lol
