Well, I couldn't be bothered finding out. I put the PWK36 on the '18 with same jetting as for the '14. Not worse, not better. Different lower which could be fixed with more jetting. Mid was good- maybe slightly better. High was worse, as predicted by previous posters - seemed to run out of puff - could try a bigger main - was running a 168.

I'm going to get my head done by TSP, slide mod, ignition mod and stick with the Mikuni for now. Will buy a PWK38 later if required.

I know a guy ( Flatout 450) who has a 17 ktm 300 and got the TSP head mod and their jetting specs and still has poor economy .

I think playing with needle size and levels as mentioned earlier is a good tip

Tried PWKs but I like the Mikuni feel on my old Husky bikes
If you want more power you can get them taken out to 39mm and a divider plate added .

some of it comes down to how you use the right hand, just by his user name Flatout 450 sounds as though he likes to hold it open.

True that. what im saying is tsp doesnt necessarily mean a fix. Jetting needs to be sorted to suit conditions

What Iím saying is your jetting wonít help economy if you hold it wide all day.
I have a Ď17 300 and for trail riding I get anywhere from 100-140 km per tank depending on terrain. If I race (I use the term race very loosely) I get about 60km per tank - same jetting just different attitude towards throttle position.
