64' GS160, came with malossi cases, pinasco 60mm crank, malossi 210 kit, bgm big box touring. Had a 30mm dellorto. For touring purposes we went to a 24.24e that was available. I have since read about problems with fuel flow. I don't want to seize at highway speeds, and it's my brothers bike I am prepping for him. Has bgm fast flow petcock.
Want to maintain the best possible mpg for this motor.
1. Get a pinasco float bowl and drill the fuel supply hole that feeds the main jet
2. Buy a 24.24g
3. Buy 26.26 (is there much difference in mpg overall?)

Would having a spacer between the head and cylinder be more suited to this sort of setup than a spacer at the base of the cylinder?

Currently set up with a polini venturi, I don't think I like the foam filter, probably dumping this and going with a stock style filter setup.

Thanks, I will check that carb out.
It already has the bgm high flow fuel tap.

Anyone running the polini Venturi/filter oil their filter. On a a looong ride carry a spare filter, or run a stock style filter?

Hey Gick
Wouldn’t is make more sense to stick with the phbh30 and dial that in.
Seeing it has way more adjustability.
I mean you still need to spend time jetting in, why not spend that time on a carb you already have and can cope with much higher fuel demands and just about infinite tuning capabilities, just seems counterintuitive.
The 24 is at its limits whereas the 30 sidedraft has much more headroom

It no longer has the phbh30, it has a 24.24g. Going with a smaller carb, because the bike is riding across country and I want to increase mpg.
