Probably somthing like 28mm but it all depends on what you want. I believe Kawasaki selected the Carb size for optimum preformance at full throttle as oposed to best all around driveability.
No I never tried smaller carbs.

not too bad, actually. Ducati 900 41mm kits sell close to $900 :eek:

still more than many folks paid for their EX's.

You must weigh gains vs $$$ expense

I know the Duc guys swear by the 41mm Keihin CR's....."best performance bang for the buck"
worth it on EX? Dunno....anybody?

Like I said, the EX is overcarbureted as it is bigger one won't help it.
