Mikuni round valve (slide) carburetors are a common form of fuel delivery used in the popular brands of two-cycle snowmachines. They use a system of jets, needles, and air control, which overlap in function, to provide a smooth delivery of fuel at all levels of engine function. These carburetors are quite simple and readily learned and can be easily maintained and repaired.
