CV carb will handle up to about 90 HPs. A CV44 is another option to provide smooth power and better fuel mileage. S&S is a good carb but tends to drop fuel mileage due to it's design to deliver a lot more fuel faster. More of a performance/racing carb. If you go that route, look at the Super-E Shorty.

big fan of super e, although have heard of great things with the cv. since my motor upgrade(124) I am running the mikuni that it came with. love it too. I'd say mod the cv and see how it goes. s&s tends to have a dead spot that has to be modded to fix, so ......
