Is the blue throttle cable that comes with the JC20 kit long enough for a 7.5" stretch kit if using stock handlebars?
Or do I need to source a longer cable? If so, where?
I'm guessing the jets in the JC20 kit are not interchangeable with the stock GET carb or are they?
I have not cracked my stocker open yet...

Thanks for any help...

The amount of gain just depends on the rest of what you have done as well as how well you have it tuned.
It is very hard to give a description of a gain untill you either rode someone else's or have it yourself. I could give a general horsepower upgrade number but are you good enough to be able to take that information and use it to make a good assertion of the gain that there is to be expected. In saying that as well some people cannot feel the difference "seat of the pants" with a 2hp gain whereas some people can feel the difference with just a 0.2hp gain. I'm not going to use horsepower numbers to advertise like so many other companies do just to sell more parts, you can call it bad marketing on my end, but I don't like misleading info by saying something is going to make a certain number of HP more and there is no way that it will.

carb question, all of a sudden my carb went from running amazing to running like shit.
example, went on a long cruise the other day and had to either A)give it very little throttle or B)give it full throttle. in between just made it pop and lurch

and now, as of a couple days ago, i have to ride around with the choke pulled just to get it to run decent. full throttle and it either bogs, or sputters. there is no really predictable description. also, the A/F mixture screw fell out on me today i need to know were to source a new once without purchasing a whole new carb. and this screw falling out has not affected the way the carb is acting, it is still very temperamental.

pc20 carb btw
any help would be awesome. 38sj, 78mj.

PLEASE HELP, I'M READY TO RUN THE RUCK THROUGH A WALL

Check for a leak where it meets the manifold?

Might be the fuel pump going out.

Oh oh! My turn! Spent $900 on a Big Bore Bore GET engine. Knocks like hell and has since the second I got it. Replaced cam tensioner, checked valve lash, and it still knocks. Has since it was brand new. My question? THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?

Make sure you're vacuum line runs off the top of the pump directly to the manifold elbow and does not T into anything
