Well Chase, I have been running Super E's on both my present bike and my old iron head that I had before this bike. I like them because they are a very simple carb. Anyone can take them apart and work on them. They are easy to jet and they do have a accelerator pump. Not hard at all to tune them. Parts are all over the place, like rebuild kits, and there are performance items like the Yost power tube and Thunder jets for them. They are very old school, Old Tech but still a solid performer. If you are running a stock CV carb I think you might have to change your intake manifold though I'm not sure about that. Any way Old School, Easy to work on and tune, Dependable, and decent to good performance.
Yea, I'm running a cv carb on my 95 sporty, it also has the thunderslide kit in it (got dirt cheap). I'm leaning towards the hsr42 due to a few guys I ride with have them and swear by them. Plus my tuning guy told me if I put the mikuni on there, it'd feel like I just did the top end again adding close to 10HP
Not knocking your tuning guy but I doubt you will pick up 10HP just changing the carb. But hey If you do let me know and I will run right out and buy one. They do make a great carb and I hear they have great throttle response. They have been around a long time as the first one I ever ran into was in 1970 on a inline 4 cylinder 750 Honda. It had four Mikuni's on it. The Japs have always used them on a lot of their bikes through the years. They are for sure one of the best carbs on the market. You can't go wrong installing one on your bike. It will be a big improvement over what you are running now.
