buy the my-side or do home brew

hey guys, my stock carb has never ran very well and has been acting up lately so u need to get a new carb set up. i have seen alot of bad talk about the webers so am staying away from them since i do alot of offroading.

i want to do the harley cv carb set up. i have looked on the internet for hours today and have not found any diy cv carb set ups that have worked.

if i can make my own set up and save money i will. does anyone know of a diy cv carb write up?

I went with the My Side 2 from http://www.zuksoffroad.net/samurai_engine.htm
You add about $70 for a cv carb on ebay . and you are set. I think its the best thing i have done to the zuk yet. It is a turn key set up. Im alot like u ,i would rather build my own. (twin sticks) but its well worth it. My, thought of evertyhing.

I took my first trip to the Con last weekend. Right of the bat i found the carb to be running rough. I pulled the air filter and saw that either the float was stuck or the pressure was to high. So i wacked the bowl a few times with a screw driver. nothing so i backed the screw out on the reg to lower the pressure and it fixed it. The coolest thing about the my side is that if i wasen't able to fix it i could of called MY he is real good with getting back to ya with help. The rest of the trip was like running fuel inj. Not even a sputter.

Sorry for the long reply

here is a good thread http://bbs.zuwharrie.com/content/topic,81164.0.html

yes, stay away from webers Never had my gixxer(CV) carbs cut out, it gets a little rich in extreme angles but doesn't die. I would make my own setup for sure, but I'm broke and cheap

Those are junk and to big to boot. A motorcraft 2100 bolts in the same place as the holley and actually runs on angles. I believe the smallest CFM on the holley is 360 and it will flood out on a 30* incline.

carbs

there were a few years of kawasaki vulcan that used that same carb (the standard cv not the screamin eagle) if you do a bit of research/cross referancing you should be able to find one at a motorcycle shop -i had to drive 3 hours to get mine and it cost me $100. good luck. -DT

i am going to get the holley 2300 and the pull through turbo set up. i just talked to my friend and he told me the problem with a small engine and big carb is that there is not enought air in the air to fuel ratio but when you put a turbo on then it increases the air going in the system which makes up for the extra fuel.

he said somting along those lines but it make sense to me. if a vw can run that big holly carb than why not my samurai.

The jet you use won't help the flooding at extreme angles. The jet only sets your air fuel ratio, it will not help the fact that the carb runs like shit at an angle. I have heard lots of good about the Motorcraft carbs from the Jeep guys, so I'd personally go with that sooner than a Holley.

I know you made the right choice. I'm currently running a Weber, and it has done well, except on extreme steep inclines. Other than that, it does everything I need it to do. If I had the money, I'd go with the Myside.

Everything I've heard, read, and personal experience on the phone about/with My, is a positive. He has excellent customer service, and stands by his products.

Keep us updated on your thoughts.
