1981 carbs vs. 1982 carbs

Post by sidecar pinkerton » Mon Jul 20, 2015 9:32 pm



Has anyone used a '81 carb set on a '82? All I've been able to find out is a difference in air needle setting, but don't know why or if a negative affect would result from the switch. Any advice, thanks, sc pinkerton


parts are parts and pieces are pieces, till you try bolting them together :lol:

Hey RBGERSON, thank you for a confirmation. I look forward to seeing this 'barn find' running, instead of transferring gas from tank to air chamber. sc pinkerton
