We use those in the proper application. They work well, and can be modified to work even better.

out on a limb here, but for the average joe, the cv and mikuni are easier to make for better drivability on a daily rider. there are other carbs in market today that work very well also, like bob woods carbs.

A Super "E" has only two fuel circuits...while that was fine for the Shovelheads it's not an easy task to tune for the newer Evo's and especially Twin Cams...you end up tuning the top and bottom towards the middle to get rid of a flat spot in the middle...the can be improved with a Thunderjet and work quite well with that additional curcuit...

We have dedicated fixtures that allow boring of those, as well as G carbs, and the CV's also. In the applications that want/need those modifications, it works very well.
