Did you get it installed yet?

Did you get your new carb installed yet?

If so, how's it runnin? I've got an 87 evo and everyone seems to want me to switch to the CV carb (even though mine seems to be running fine as it is!) I'm wondering, did you find any noticeable advantage when you switched? I'm not so much interested in top end power improvement since I haven't found a hill that I can't climb fast enough for me yet, but wondered if there was anything noticeable in everyday riding performance. Like is it smoother on acceleration than a butterfly carb? Did it improve your fuel mileage? Etc?

I changed to the CV on my 1989 Ultra. Around home with the old Keihin carburetor, it acted correctly at home. But when i went out of town and to a different elevation, it just had no power. I switched to the CV found that when I traveled to higher altitudes, the bike performed like I was at home, no mater where I was or how high the altitude. Plus the gas mileage improved no matter where I went. It was the best modification I ever made.

i have a 1988 softail custom and did the conversion. what a difference. i thought the old carb worked fine, but the cv is a lot smoother and no hesitation at all. burns a lot cleaner too. best mod i ever did.

Great information. Thanks. Looks like maybe I should look into one of these too.
