i think i'm going to hold off on buying a set of carbs this time until after i've gotten GMC & poruki's feedback, but i've found a few sets of weber dcom 40mm side drafts being sold in pairs for about $200US w/ shipping
Quote:
Weber side draft dual barrel 40 DCOM carbs.

A matched pair

complete.excellent conditions.ready to be used.

Top quality italian made carbs-similar to the dcoe carbs except for the perfected acceleration pump diaphragm.

These carbs were the replacement carbs for the old DCOE series of production.

Will bolt on any standard side draft weber 40 DCOE carburettors manifold.uses all the same inner parts-jets/needles/seats/floats,,,as the former DCOE

now they don't come w/ trumpets or filters or a manifold. they also look quite "long" so i suspect i may have to cut into the firewall to make room for them & filters ?
i know gerry's all about the performance bike carbs, but these look super simple to tune, jets & everything are accessible without removing anything w/ a single wing-nut ..
is this a good deal, or should i just sit back & wait to find some smoothbores ? i'm hunting around right now to find out details on the costs of the extras i would need to make them work..
other options would be solex 40 ADDHE side draft dual barrel carbs for about $150us w/ shipping (bolts up the same as the webers)

are you having big problems with your stock computer???

40mm carbs you could get around 15 mpg. and less them 10 mpg in race tune.
y are u soo bent on carbs? to start from scratch on carbs, by the time you by, carbs, jet kit, rebuild kit, rebush throttle shafts, buy a manifold, buy veloicty stacks, filters, linkage. a mk1 cultus distrubuter with 10 years of caps and rotors, coil, low pressure fuel pump, fpr, new fuel lines... a dyno or rolling road to tune them... and a really good igntion

sorry just that i like fuel injection. i don't see that u could save much money
and then to have finiky set up. maybe for a race car. but then i couldn't afford that because it would throw me into mod in auto-x or GT road racing...


???

I recomend you to go with 45mm dcoe. FI is better but a lot more $$$$$$. Webers are better than the cultus manifold, only think better than weber will be individual TB's like the ones TWM has.
