Wink New slip-ons & mmo

May shock a few of you when I tell you that I removed the drag-pipes & replaced them with some Cycle Shack slip-ons and poured in some Marvel Mystery Oil in the fuel tank and promptly increased my fuel mileage by 5 MPG . Before I was lucky to sqeeze out 44-45 MPG.
Now finally I can hit 200 miles before going on reserve on my carb. Wide Glide .

doesnt surprise me, r you running a twin cam or evo, also when the carb is tuned right you get good mileage and performance, drag pipes are hard to tune for as well

Yeah , its an 02 Twinkie with an SE ac & a big K&N with a jetted carb. and SE cam chain up-grade and a 600 RPM idle . Love it !
I really like not having to depend on a light to tell me I need gas .
I just ride it till its time to go on reserve and then I still have over 50 miles of reserve fuel to find a gas station .
That's what I liked about all my old 1980's EVO's . All were Low Riders with about 4.6 gas tanks but still could ride almost 200 miles before reserve , and I don't baby em ! If anything I usually have the throttle cocked back plus I'm a blipper !
Carb. bikes are the cat's meow for sure .

yea i do love my carb, i dont have to worry about electronic failure, the 600 idle is alittle to low for me i like 1k personaly, do you have a oil pressure gauge, i here that low of an idle isnt good because it doesnt produce good oil pressure and over time can cause wear

Well with the SE cam chain up-grade a high performance oil pump is part of the package which not only scavenge oil much better but increases oil pressure . Even when I set the hot idle at below 600 RPM the oil light never comes on so not much to worry about engine lubrication unless the light flickers !
