When I bought my bike it had one on it. It was a beast at high rpm's but did not like the low off idle riding. It was not jetted correctly either. A correctly jetted slide carb will yield better results. I went back to a modified stock carb for better street manners.
A bigger carb will help in the upper range greatly.
