That is for only the a/f adjuster knob not the carb

As one of the other forum users recently found out, the carbs with that type of float bowl will have clearance issues with the head. The one i posted above is a direct bolt in replacement and will fit perfectly. And it is a few bucks cheaper.

I put a 25mm from an ATC185 on my x15..although there were clearance issues there was also a way to solve it.............

Of course there are ways to solve it. But if you dont want to deal with all that, you can get one that will bolt right up with no clearance issues. And for less cost lol. And it is also jetted pretty dang close for my X18!

If he was going to put in a bigger engine, and a much larger carb, then there you will HAVE to deal with clearance issues. But if he just wants to put a 22mm carb on his stock size engine, there are certain carbs that will fit without any problems. So why wouldnt you use them? JMO

All kinds and sizes of carbs for these bikes but the X18 is one of the hardest carbs to get in that small space on clear the valve cover cap.

Well then forget my responses. You are probably going to have to do some trial-error and maybe make a custom manifold to get a carb to fit. But still, a carb with a smaller bowl will most likely be easier to fit...

ive trimmed fins, non structure frame parts, carb parts
thought about heating up a manifold and twisting it
ive got them all to work with the right manifold, i got alot to pick from
the 22mm carb was a nice power gain

My X18 has to go forward cause the starter motor is in the way to face the carb back.
