How much CARB do i need?????

8 posts in this topic

I would suggest a carb that can handle a good dirt load. Like the one the K&N is going to let through.

I sure agree on the K&N. If your going to ride street only, then the K&N should be OK. If you will be riding dirt, go back to the oiled foam filter.

Make sure you are on the rich side. If it goes lean when it's hot with that 10.5:1 piston, it'll fry. Do yourself a favor and get one of those oil temp gagues. Over 300 is bad.

One thing I've never understood, what do the aftermarket rods do for the engine? Are they lighter or something?

I'm just taking a guess here...but I bet he rides mostly on the street.

That carb should be fine. See- Bernoulli's Principle.

I agree with the temp dipstick but typically those read out what the oil temp is in the holding unit(frame) where the oil will cool. Those temp strips are nice, mount one on your radiator and one on the cylinder and use them. They're fairly accurate too.

Lighter and stronger. They don't really increase horsepower (although parisitic HP loss is reduced with lighter components) but they will help an engine spin up faster and aren't likely to wind up poking out of the crankcase.

Actually I ride mostly offroad. I have a UNI also that I will use. Thanks.

IS a TM-38 enough carb?
