  Easy Kits:

Simple installation and easy adjustments make the Mikuni "Easy Kit" one of the best and most popular ways to improve the performance of a Harley-Davidson motor. Easy Kits use the stock intake manifold and stock throttle cables making installation very simple.

The HSR's unmatched throttle response and excellent air/fuel mixture control gives it a clear advantage over its competition. The design evolution of the Mikuni HSR carburetors goes back more than 80 years and stands at the end of a long line of excellent motorcycle carburetor designs.

Easy Kits for the Twin Cam and Evolution models add both power and all around performance to stock or moderately modified engines. With a free-flowing air cleaner and mufflers a Twin Cam motor picks up a solid 15 Horsepower. A similar Evo gains 12 or more.

Total Kits:

These kits are complete with everything needed for a total installation. Kits include an HSR 42mm or 45mm carburetor, new performance manifold, rubber flange, high flow K&N filter, chrome cover, chrome breather kit and mounting hardware. Stock throttle cables from 1990 and later Big Twins can be used. Note: 1984 to 1989 models will need new cables from a 1990 to 1995 model.

Sportster/Buell:

The HSR42 carb in the Sportster and Buell kits requires slightly different jetting and a different throttle cable bracket than the Big Twins. Mikuni's two Sportster/Buell kits differ in that one includes a high performance air cleaner backplate and the other does not. This Mikuni backplate is a robust design that works with a K&N stock replacement air filter or the larger Buell racing filter. Buell owners should buy the 42-11 kit and must use an after market air cleaner assembly.

Use stock Harley cables (1988 or later).
