Swilly has pictures somewhere of his with black mesh when he still had the Edelbrock filter; I think he ended up replacing it with the chrome for appearance

Put on a bunch of miles since installing the intake and jets and found I was running a weee bit rick mid to high throttle and a bit lean at idle. Pulled the carbs and move the clips from 3rd notch up to second notch and tweaked out the a/f screws about a half turn and took it on a 200+km trip..... shoulda done more testing first as idle was good and cleaned up the heavy decel pop and odd backfire but I was getting surging while cruising mid throttle. Came home, yanked the carbs again and added a shim on both needles and took it for a spin........

Yahoo!! Other than hitting this during the test ride:



interupted this turkey vulture while he was eating pressed squirrel he flew up in front of me and bounced off my handlebars but didn't actually hit me luckily!

Bike now runs fantabulously!!

Will add my changes to the earlier posts to make it easy to find.

Hey Bob how much of a shim did you use and what did you use to shim it? I'm on the third notch now and still getting a slight surge with a headwind but fine otherwise so a shim would just make it about perfect I think.

I just grabbed 2 small washers I had in my parts tray which were slightly larger than the diameter of the needle. I have them in our hobby shop too if you need some just pop into Paris and see me

Perfect I'll see what I can find at work, being a millwright with a parts room is rather handy
