07 440x Carb on a et340

This must have been done by someone but I can't find any information. I want to replace my stock Butterfly type carb from my Et 340 for a flat slide Mikuni it came off a mxz440x. I only plan on using one this season but I would like to know which jets (only close) and part numbers I would be running I will also need needle jets, jet needles, pilots, power jets, the whole nine yards. I realize that I am asking a lot but any input is invaluable, also I recognize I will have to do plug checks and re-jet.

The rectangle one should have enough capacity for a single of that size.

You will need one with a split in it for the oil pump.
One for the MXZ should work.

Thanks RJ
I am running premix tho. The cable that came with the carbs is way too short I have been using a honda thumb throttle and a Ovation carb up till now. I would keep using the cable if it would fit the slide but it won't... Ideas?

Measure the length needed and add at least 2".
You should be able to find one the right length.
