bike was running like crap loss of compression bogging down spitting popping so i thought must be intake leak so put new gasket and o-ring took for test ride still runs like #$%$%R^%^& . so cleaned out the exhaust pipe went for a ride still ran like $%^%$^. so i pulled over and gave it the gas to see if something was stuck in there some were . all of a sudden it was sounding better so what ever it was i blew it out by opening up the gas . went home started to run like ^&*&* again. got home took carb off and started to take it apart and thats when i found the problemm a piece of the carb that goes on the manifold was just kinda hanging there
. lucly I HAD ONE OF THOSE CARBS THAT HAVE THE AIR AND IDLE SCREWS NEW . I NEVER USED IT CAUSE I DIDNT THINK IT WOULD FIT. BUT A FEW MODS LATER I GOT IT ON.

now that fixed it. these newer carbs are hot !!! when i first gave it gas thought i was going to pull a wheelee not but it sure did take off alot faster more umphhh to it noww sometimes for hours your working on it by process of elimination hours go by and i get nuts but what the heck it sure is neat when you do figure it out and it all seems worth it then makes your bonding with your bike a better thing . but still drive me nuts sometimes thanks larry ca

these carbs also have a choke lever you put upon the handlebars uses a cable dont know what kinda jets are in it but i like it itws a bit longer with the air filter all added on so i ended up cutting some of the rubber off the air filter and just using a clamp to hold it one that took away about and inch just enoughroom to sqezze it in larry ca

i see the new carb, and i want to get it. the problem is will it fit right into the place of the stock one (minus the air filters)? i have a really tight space, and i had to make a new manifold, and i was wondering if i'd be able to just put this right into the place of the old one without any trouble.
thanx

foyeburger: does that upgraded carb have any writing or letters or anything on it that might indicate a brand or model or anything like that?

upgrade chinese carborator sets

HI I have a few of those carb kits. I have not tried them as I am spending all my "developement" (read fun and games modification time) on Whizzers, antique motorcycle replica, and BTR exposed pushrod/rocker engine developement. The kits are 75.00 complete with throttle (with 90 degree noodle), and remote choke lever and cable installed, 10.00 would ship anywhere in the US mike at simpsonmotorbikes dot com
