And I thought my 6 inch pipe on my Cummins diesel pickup was big enough, I might have to rethink this hahahaha

Piston,

The pipe? I was under the impression that it was a real one?

I remember you told me not to get that other one that was fake a while ago. You even sent me a link on ebay but he didn't have anymore in stock for about the last 4 months.

I know the pipe is straight from mainland China but I just thought I need a bigger one.

Looks like good Stainless, you will need some Pilot and Main Jets and once jetted I think you'll be happy

Piston,

Lol. See I was sitting here thinking I was a "good boy" in following orders, and you almost gave me a heart attack. lol.

Yes re-jetting is going to be an absolute must, most likely going to the 115 main and 32 idle for a starting point and going back to my Uni pod filter.

You know it Fifty,

I know this goes against what Dan, and a couple more, have recommended but....

Very few builds, I come across anyway, have the original airbox's on them.

Mostly likely will be going to a 30mm carb. when the weather gets warm, up from my 26mm.

I would try rejetting before going to a bigger carb, from what I've read a bigger carb is not always better, or gain more performance.

You'll find that Snorkel is the biggest Velocity and HP killer. I kick myself for being sf stupid as to buy one, I knew better.

at 30mm WAY Over Carbureted, Keep Velocity up!

Piston, what you running as an intake right now?

And what size carb.?

Very true my elder brother...

28mm would be better, I think, but hard to find.

But I will definitely will re-jet, tune, test before wasting money.

Hey hey, what is this I'm seeing here, is that a TOCE style exhaust I see up there, and you didnt put a link...... lol I'm diggin it for sure, do they have silencers in them?, If not they gonna be loud as...... I doubt you'll need such a big main jet, and I agree no need for the 30mm carb. Do you plan to try a round slide carb? or back with the CV carb.

A 100% guaranteed FAKE 26mm carb from Scrappy... with the Uni right off the end.

Fake is on the left with the OE 24mm on right..

On my career  build I've been gathering parts for I won't mess with a CV carb, a genuine Mikuni Round or Flat slide of maybe 26-28mm

My 2000 HD bagger had a CV carb, I changed it to a mikuni ,way easier to dial in, and not as bad for elevation changes.

Hey BCY,

Yeah I'm a TOCE guy, gonna look killer coming out the back of my future CBR600, but for now, this will do.

Yup, silencers in them and doubt I will ever remove them, I'm not into a lot of noise, gotta here my music.

Think I will stay with the CV, I have a lot of homework to do on the round slide or flat for that matter.

Hearing tuning horror stories.

I will add a link for both to the video, once produced.

I WANT TO RIDE!!!:banghead:

Not the best, got it from Yerf Dog, but it is 26mm, measured with a digital caliper.

Nah its FAKE, Look at the machined step on the FAKE carb on left. the end measures 26mm but the Center of the Venturi is STOCK 24mm.

They just bored the end out off a 24mm carb and called it a day..

the 26mm Nibbi I got from Dan is a True 26mm carb but some jets are different so I didn't source the jets.

Hers a closer look at the Step. it fooled me till I received the Nibbi 26mm as my Caliper jaws would not go  that far inside I used Telescoping gauges to measure..

Now look at the True 26mm from Nibbi, No machined Step  (second pic).

The FAKE measures 24mm in the center and the Nibbi measures 26mm....

Yeah, I can see the difference, color me impressed, my friend.

I will never say you didn't help me out with a lot of further education about these scooters.

Hey Piston, is it possible I use a document that I got from you in one of my video's.

It's the chart of the cam performances.

When the weather breaks in 10 years I will be throwing in an A9 cam because of your education when I got that A14.

You know I'm gonna shout you out in the video, but I didn't want to post something like it was my idea.

What do you think?
