Single or dual carb question.....

#1

Post by 83Interstate »

I'm wanting to do a different carb setup. Would like dual carbs but don't want weber or solex. Would like to run a pair of cv carbs off of a pair of short run intakes and place the carbs near the stock location. I've searched my fuzzy tail off looking everywhere and found nothing but weber solex and hotts dual strombergs. Anybody have any links to ANYONE ANYWHERE who have done anything like this? Even a pair of round or flat slide mikuni carbs or similar would be a place to start learning what I'm up against. I'm thinking copper tubing. Thanks for any help.

I have read all about that. That is a really interesting modification right there. I enjoyed reading that one. It looks really good also.

I tried two Hitachi carbs. Got fed up trying to sync them and ordered better linkage. If you’re found two, do some research on linkage setups and save yourself some time and hassle. Try to come up with something that has some adjustments for synchronizing. The one thing a little odd about putting two carbs on a Wing is the air charge will shoot through for two pulls then pause for two pulls. 1-3 draws, then 2-4 draws. I’m not smart enough to know how that will affect flow. My gut says the first draw will be a little less than the second draw. (The second will still have inertia) maybe CV carbs will compensate for that? Maybe not.

I threw my V65 carbs back on and ten minutes later totaled my bike. I was an April Fool. Thought I would get another bike and try again but Covid has dampened that. The day before yesterday the doc gave me the big C word. Melanoma in situ. Okay that’s an M. Perhaps the best you can get if you have to. Also had some heart issues, not major I don’t think. More tests Friday. Riding is off the table for me for now.
Whatever I suggest here should be given ample time for a moderator to delicately correct. I apologize in advance.
