I just picked up a used Edelbrock Quicksilver 2 carb. Was wondering if anyone has used an Edelbrock with good or bad results. I have never had an Edelbrock motorcycle carb. I won't be using it for a while and was wondering if it will be worth using. I may try it on my 107". Not sure if I can jet it big enough for all this motor. I would love to hear back from anybody that has used one. Thanks.

I used a Qwiksilver II carb on an Evo back in 1995 when they first came out. At the time, the carb was owned by Red Edmonson (? spelling) who actually designed it. He later sold the rights to Edelbrock. The carb I had was a 38MM. Doubt that would function good on a 107". So check which you have.

I really liked the carb. Easy to tune, good gas mileage and it's still on the bike today although I don't own it anymore. I wouldn't hestitate to use one again. Lots of people thought they were difficult to deal with but I didn't find that to be the case. They definitely won't run worth a toot without some backpressure in the exhaust system so drag pipes are out.

I have an almost brand new one that I bought in 1999 from a guy that put it on a 1998 Evo but then decided to sell the bike and took the carb off. I bought it from him. Still wrapped up in the box on the shelf.

I have a 42mm Mikuni that would be perfect for a 107. The 38mm Edelbrock will starve that 107 for fuel. also there is a stamp on the edelbrock Qwicksilver next to the pat numbers that is 38 or 42.

Those carbs predate corn juice in the gas. You may have issues with the rubber and plastic parts.

It's easy enough to carry an antihistamine bottle filled with an additive at every fill up. I use Mercruiser myself always some around if you have a boat. One bottle treats 35 gallons so only a squirt is needed.

I carry a bottle of octane boost just in case. I've had group rides where someone puts the wrong fuel in. Heck we even had one woman put diesel in her bike! DOH! "I don't know what's wrong with it!" Fortunately a couple guys were able to drain and flush the tank and carb and get her back on the road.
