Pulled the trigger today on a new Edelbrock for the BRP. Any tips on getting this thing setup or is it pretty much "plug-n-play"? Good thing Julian said that he is so sure I will love it that he is offering me double what I paid if it doesn't transform my pig into a fire breathing wild boar :applause: :applause: ;-)

there's another one for sale over on ADVrider - hope you like yours better than this guy:


good price there

I've never had the stock carb on the bike, so I can't really say what the difference would be, but I read that it's not really a "fire breathing monster" change. More a response finesse kinda deal

Some people love it, some hate it. I think it's a great carb for the pig. Check to see what needle is in it, for the Cali high desert the 19e is a good starting point. One thing you should do is file the front right corner of the hold down "clamp" on the top of the carb. It's a sharp corner that can rub a hole in the bottom of the fuel tank. I didn't use the aluminum fuel elbow that came with the kit, instead I twisted the fuel inlet 45 degrees and used a piece of clear fuel line to the petcock - 2 less connections in the fuel line.
