Lectron carb

Anyone have an opinion on Lectron carburetors? I've heard they are good for race only, but I have heard that they have become a great street carb now-a-days.

Lectrons are still around ??? That used to be a slide carb with no float bowl, the fuel fed from the tank hose straight into the jets.
At least I think those were Lectrons.

no,those were lake injectors (even though they wernt a injector(??).I used lectrons on my flat tracker WAY beck in the day and on alot of gas bikes ive raced and built for others over the years.they will make a fine street carb as long as you find someone with the tapered needles & jets.FAST BY GAST still carried the parts

I used Lectrons on the two-stroke triples for many years. They take some getting used
to. All fuel curve adjustments are done with the needle, (there's no jets). Some of them
have an optional power jet but those were mainly for two-stroke engines.

Yeah, they are pricy. Around $20 each if I recall correctly.

(I have a bunch of these if anyone's interested)

ive never fooled with them...sounds like they adjust like the edelbrock carbs for atv's do...as for quads...lectrons seemed to be the carb of choice for alcohol motors, but flatslides were always better on the gas motors...not really sure why
