    Bike Carbs On A Pinto

    Running my 2 Litre Pintosaurus 7 on bike carbs at the moment (34mm chokes -fazer 600's) Its made a huge improvement over the 32/36 DGAV Install was a doddle and tuning them has proved to be fairly straight forward Manifold was made locally KNN Manifolds and they even re-spaced the carbs fuel rails and choke bar :-) Plenty of tuning guides out there for CV carbs (start at WOT and work your way down) Mine just needed tha main jet taking out to 170 (just drilled the main jets with a 1.7mm bit) and it costs nowt to shuffle the needles up and down as they are on clips the idle jets are also screw adjustable - making tuning/tweeking them really cheap compared to Webortolex types The best bit is the fact that the carbs no longer throw a second choke open causing unpredictable back end step outs and deliver smooth predictable power and don't need accelerator pumps and diaphragm bits that WILL wear out Fuel economy is superb (and also beats the DGAV hands down) I have been able to tweak the mixtures without having to buy loads of sets of jets and correctors and new gaskets Well happy with mine - the only thing they will get replaced with would be throttle bodies, eventually Go for it - its definately put a load more life into the Pinto
