Interesting...quite a few bikes use multiple carbs...some Honda and Aprilia singles for example. Small carb for low revs then a bigger carb chimes in higher up the range.

I saw that a month or so back, I thought it was in the US then. Might have sold then relisted. I think 2 X 32mm is about max, 3 could not work.
