Recently bought a 1997 FXDS-CON with a Edelbrock carb & QuickSilver air cleaner. Was running great, but now runs very rich, eratic and low speed flat spots. I can't find anyone with much good to say about the Edelbrock carbs. Any suggestions out there?

I ran a Qwiksilver carb on a 1988 FXSTS from 95 to 98 (40,000 miles) and never had a bit of trouble with it. If it was running good and then started with rich problems you quote, you need to check:

1. Trash in the carb that has closed up some air orifices.
2. Have you done anything else to the bike, ie, exhaust, etc. The Qwiksilver carb will never run worth a durn with drag pipes.

I always liked the carb. Very simple and easy to tune. Most people that don't like it haven't taken the time to learn the carb and tune it properly.
