a friend had an EVO with an SU on it a few years back and claims it went 250 miles on a tank...I think the bike was basicly a stock softail custom other than the SU

I've tried various searches and can't seem to find much info about them used on harleys other than a few for sale in ebay for shovels

I'm just curious about SU carbs and how that kind of milege would be possible
good design or are they just smaller?

and finally has anyone put one on a TC

The SU carb is available from Rivera Primo. The softail custom has a 5 gallon tank so you are looking at a little over 50MPG considering the reserve. This is easily achievable on a well tuned stocker at reasonable highway speeds with the stock CV carb....Bill
