ive been looking into upgrading my carby to a weber from standard the covert that i found in the states uses a 32/36 DGV weber ive been told by a carby specialist that the 32/36 is for a 2 liter engine. now the carby specialist i seen has a convert using a 32/34 DFT weber he said its made for a 1.3 liter engine he said that it doesn't have flooding problems like the 32/36 DGV. 32/34 DFT convert is $650 australian does anyone know about much about these carbys which convert would be better for a engine that has been bored out 20thou and has been port and polished balanced when built and has all raceing internals are these carbys trew webers or are they tthe fake ones

getting parts and support for a harley davidson screaming eagle isn't going to be easy in australia though. There are other constant velocity side draft carbs though, and they are far superior for power gains than the weber down draft. Mikuni, solex, suzuki... they all make cv carbs that can be used with this engine. Weber also makes a side draft that won't flood on you. The only issue with the 32/36 flooding is when it's on a steep incline. I don't know that thge 32/34 wouldn't do the same thing. It's a shortcoming of the design of the float chamber, not the port size of the carb.

by steep incline I mean something that you won't find on-road anywhere. I can't put a number on it, but I'd say you'd have to be over 60 deg incline.

as for manifolds, the mikunis sell a manifold that bolts up to the samurai water jacketed intake. Petroworks and ZOR modify the stock intake to mount the cv carbs. You'd probably have to contact the manufacturer to get a manifold for the engine you want to run it on. Most of the distributors that don't normally deal with suzuki's won't have something like that in-stock.

zuksoffroad.com also sells a very reputable cv carb kit. myside 1 and myside 2. one comes with an intake manifold and (myside 2) and the other adapts to your stocker i believe (myside 1). they use harley 40mm or 44mm cv carbs, but im sure you could adapt about any cv carb to it if you wanted to.

Myside 1 works well, but the improvement to Myside 2 straightened out the air flow and added some power. I have installed and tested both Myside 2 and the Petroworks systems with the 44mm HD CV carb. They both work well, but the Petroworks system was a cleaner install. Getting the full package from Petroworks includes a fuel regulator that is already set up for a perfect flow to feed the carb.

Go with what you can find. When I tested both kits, I found that the 44 was cheaper and easier to find than the 40. The power will probably not feel much different between the two until you dyno it.

44s all the way. A customer of ours was running the 40 and wasnt happy so he went to the 44 and recommends it to everyone looking at a MYside. I have no experience with the 40 but my 44 is great for power. And I dont believe Petroworks is making a Harley carb setup any longer. Although I may be wrong. it has happened before.:rolleyes:

I put an old 38mm Mikuni slide carb on mine and it will spin my 31" tires and I only have 30 psi in one cylinder. It still has some issues with slide float at higher rpm's but nothing that makes it undrivable. The CV carbs are a pain to tune correctly.
