Different carb setup?

Post by No1uno »



Has anyone you know of done a different carb setup like they do on the 1200's or 1000's?
I am looking to change out what I have for a different setup.

Pictures, articles etc anything you can share?

Thanks

Why are you wanting to change your carb setup? The stock ones usually do a good job unless they are goobered up.
Try to learn from the mistakes of others..... you won't live long enough to make them all yourself!

Looking for options, see if anyone has done anything to improve them or fuel injected etc. You never know unless you ask.

Thank you

I agree the OEM setup is pretty well done.

There was a member that was adapting manifold injection. Not sure he even perfected it and at this point, probably cheaper to buy a used GL1800. You will not realize all the benefits of a computer controlled port injection. Biggest issue is the lack of needed sensors and ECM for this application.

There was another guy who did a turbocharger but IIRC that was on a GL1800.

The GL1500 Valkyrie has six carburetors but also has different valve train. If you really want to go wild, there are a few Valkyries that had superchargers installed.

Try the search tool. There are a few threads on this subject.
