I dropped by the local H-D shop and an independent shop a couple of days ago looking to buy a jet needle from an '88 1200 Sporty to install in my CV carb. Neither of these shops had this part in stock, but the H-D shop ordered some.
What surprised me was that neither had any knowledge about using this jet needle in a CV carb on a TC88! They didn't seem to know about shimming the stock needle with some brass #4 washers either.
I have been a member of this forum for just a few months, but have read about these modifications numerous times. I thought just about everyone knew about this stuff! The guys at these shops give me the "fisheye" when I tell them what I'm trying to do.
Anyone else having similar experiences, or is it just me?

I think you will find that after a person hangs around the internet Harley Forums for a while, absorbing the Tech Talk, that you will be head and shoulders above the average harley rider, or tech for that matter in the number of things you will be well versed in.
