The KMS is out of production--yes?
Its pricetag was steep.
no wonder I didn't notice a visual difference, doubt anyone could tell 2mm difference with the naked eye. Are the throttle plates the same size on the type 1 and type 2 TB? also, this might be a shot in the dark, but if the KMS cant be made anymore, wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to overbore the stock TB and have a larger throttle plate made? or are there also other differences in the KMS TB?Dv8 said:Exactly
The TYPE 2 is bigger by 2mm or so, the KMS is 3-5mm bigger with a bigger butterfly. I am very glad i got it a while back. its the perfect complement for my additional displacment. Call KMS im sure they can make one up from your core.
I kept the Type 2 tb, I just swapped out the reels. :beerchug:LS92Sedan said:I have had my JDM type 2 TB and my old Type 1 TB side by side and I could see no visual difference in TB diameter, in fact I used the Type 1 TB when I did my JDM Type 2 swap, you almost have too cuz the throttle reel is larger on the Type 2 then it is the Type 1, causes idle issues as me and Type 2-L have found out
yeah I remember that whole discussion we had a few months ago, good pointer by the way, the idle issue would have really threw me off, that was an awesome heads up btw. I dunno if the 2mm difference in TB size would even be drastic enough for me to swap the Type 2 TB back on, besides the spare parts from both motors are slowly finding their way into my new project. Right now my $ is tied up in getting all my body work done and getting my suspension and braking system to a point where I can be happy with it. after that I'll worry about making more power and doing a build up with my spare block. and with gas prices where they are now my bike has been getting alot more use than my Legend.Type2-L said:I kept the Type 2 tb, I just swapped out the reels. :beerchug:
