LOL... Yeah, the Super "E" is a great carb...
Bolt it on, just follow the instruction sheet from S&S and you're ready to run. Love mine. 3+ years and no problems with the carb at all.

They are gettin' pricey though. Kit is well over $300.00 adn probably closer or more than $400.00 by now. But, that includes everything ya need, right down to the fuel line...

My bud Ben did just that..  He wish's he had just left the CV carb on it  now. The S&S sucks alot more gas he says. The S&S gave him a lttle more power but he don't walk off and leave me. LOL!   He hates it because he sold the CV... LONG STORY SHORT--- IF IT AINT BROKE LEAVE IT ALONE.  :cool:  But we are never satisfied -- always looking for more hp gains huh.. LOL

I know they can be tricky. I would personally go with the Mikuni 42 easy kit, comes with all you need to install and you'll notice a big difference in performance right from the start. By the time you dick around with all the other shit, you're into the same money anyway, and probably more downtime.

Try a Big Sucker from Arlen Ness and maybe 1 of those Dyno-Jet kits. Have buddies that use both and are very happy with the results.

I'd like to bolt one on and try it out for a cuple days... LOL!  If I liked it- maybe find one on Ebay. Cheaper!

Yeah,  and a friend of mine said he one time a few yrs ago had alot of success with the CV by placing a 1200 sportster needle or metering rod I forget which it was... But it helped the gas mileage a bunch and ran better too.   Mine runs fine.. just needs more air I think....

Also changed my module to an Accel, that also added a major boost.I been thinkin about a Mikuni  to.. I'm sure it would add alot of power, but what about gas mileage?      Well second thought after doing some talking last nite.  I think I will simply put a kit and mess with the jetting a bit with the CV carb I'm running and try to get more air to it.

Stu has his own board (http://www.cruisebikes.net/) and doesn't come over here all that often. Might check with him over there. Goes by the name of "NoStockBikes"...

As in those cheesey bumper stickers. I love that 6 speed. I put it in back in '0, not many people were running them, so it was kind of a novelty. But I'm a true believer in the utility now. I'll never run anything else. Rode a buddy's Softail with 5 speed. I really wanted to shift again.

Stu,

What 6 sppeed do you have? What final ratio? Is is noisy?

Thanks

Fritz

A Six-Speed would be nice.

But IMO, they might be a little too pricey for the average guy. Gotta have a shop install 'em, unless you have the tools to pull the gears out, etc. Might be part of the problem too. A lot of people are scared to death to open up a transmission, let alone remove and replace gears in there.

There are other ways to achieve the same effect. But, there's also a take away. You can change out the primary sprockets for a different ratio. But, you'll lose some of the low-end pull.

You can also change the final drive sprockets for a different ratio. But, again you lose some of the low-end pull.

Either of those options also means you're going to have tear into the primary. Another scary part of the bike...LOL...

Depends on how you ride the bike. If you spend most of your time "Bar-Hopping", changing the ratio probably isn't the best option. But, if you spend most of your time on the open roads, then it could be a viable solution...
