Don't have the exact measurment but can tell you that with my 66 TR6 I had to put the filter on before I bolted the carb/intake on. The filter the mik comes with sits right up against the down tube. Coudn't see using another filter unless you can find a real skinny one. Works great though.

I need your help. What is the distance between the end of the carb body and the frame downtube when the carb is mounted up without the filter on.

Thanks!

Is it one of those pancake filters?

There are Mik conversion kits available for most Brit bikes including your BSA. You shouldn't have a problem making the conversion... HOWEVER, I'm not a BSA guy either.

sorry to go on a tangent but i have a single carb head & the amal thats on it is beat. ive worked on an old BSA that had two mik's & seemed to run well. i guess this is a common swap? do you need to modify the carb body at all to work on the stock manifold? which one are you guys running? thanks.

Mine is the filter that comes with the kit. About one inch tall. I can't see it being hard to fab a conversion if you just had a carb but the kit was a simple 10 minute swap. I loved the looks of my monoblock but the Mik is simple to tune and works great.

Fortunately the old Mikunis are easier to tune than the new. The ones on my 96 Trump are a pain in the ass. I can see why they went with Keihn later on.

If you can't get the filter to work, make your own. Its not hard.
