    Hello, I'm planning on buying one of they performance carbs but I have stumbled across a pw80 carb and my question is would the pw80 carb work? And would it work well and what would be a better option to go with?

    other than the fact that it wants to clamp onto a 22mm manifold (and yours is 19mm) there shouldn't be a problem.
    If you can make an adaptor then let us know how it turns out.

    Grab some hot/cold copper water pipe, and some metric split collars. Heat up the pipe until it's red hot, then expand it to the correct size, then use the collars to connect to the original manifold, and the carb. I had to do this for my bike as my carb did not fit, I needed a 90 degree angle manifold.

    If you put that 22mm carburetor on that 19mm intake manifold your engine will idle kinda high or abnormal because the carburetor is to big you will noticed when turn the idle screw all the way down it's still idles high.
