Talking Modifying the Bajaj P220F. Help?

Ok so I got my P220 finally upgraded after 2 years of use in its stock form.

Right now this is the mod list:
-230cc Big Bore
-Full SS FFE
-Pipercross Air Filter
-NGK Iridium plugs+MSD Ignition Coil+MSD plug cables

Now after all this, I was thinking of replacing the stock carb with a bigger one.
Anyone know whats the stock carb on the P220F?
Can I install a Mikuni VM34 Round Slide/ TM34 Flat Slide carb on it? Anyone ever attempted this? I think it should be doable.
Next on the cards should be probably be a total head+port job but I'm not sure when.

Any ideas/suggestions/advice/help ?

@xmOD, would be nice to hear the differences after the improvement.

Instead of these modifications, have you considered upgrading to a bigger / better bike itself ? You now have a choice of Honda, Ninja, & even KTM. Or even the P200NS, amongst others

+Million!!! Just like there's no replacement for displacement, there's no substitute for peace of mind. Plus not to mention the handling part that lies in the frame & other engineering that no amount of tuning can be done.

@Condor: Well you gotta believe me when I say the bike flies when you open the throttle. Its pretty fast yea! A video should be coming soon. I am very happy with the bike right now.

Well my 220F isn't that old right now and I don really fancy the CBR/Ninja/KTM in their 250cc/200cc versions. Plus with the upgrades I already have, my 220 can take on most of the bikes in the sub 250cc category and with a bigger carb am really sure it'll outrun its competitors.
I am doing up my 220F not any competition or anything, its just a hobby of mine, I did it with my dio and my cars as well. As a matter of fact, I would be doing about the same thing even if I did buy a bigger bike, maybe not immediately but surely after a year. Also, an upgrade from this 220F won't be another 250cc for me, more likely a 600.

Coming back to my original question, Anyone know anything about changing the carb on the 220F to a Mikuni VM34/TM34?

You can contact Joel Joseph of race concepts, he will get you everything that is on your list. He recently did a flat side carb on a 230cc big bore 220f.

All the things mentioned in the list have already been done on the bike. Thanks for joel's reference though, I got my bigbore+FFE from him.

I just need help with the carb, whether or not VM34/TM34 would be an easy install on the P220F?

The mikuni carbs are really costly but will be a fit, but will require some moddification to accelerator wire. Maybe a 2 stroke wire will do the job.

The semi flat slide that I believe joel provides, how much are they for? I think a friend of yours has one the semi flat slides in his P220? Whats the performance update?

What Joel provides are not textbook roundslides(semi flatslide) more like race CV carbs. The performance bump is noticeable and enhances the complete package.
All these mods will result in more power but then will require more care. If you go ahead with such mods my personal suggestion is use the bike for racing and rarely for regular use. That is what I am doing with my P250 now.

Where'd you get the block/piston for that?

Have you got a aftermarket filter on it as well? If the bike behaves right at 125 then I suggest you stick with it.

Have you tried it with a pipercross in the filter box?
