I now have a S&S shorty that is giving me lots of problems. What do you guys think about a recent stock Keihin???
All suggestions accepted.

Giorgio -

If you are talking about the CV models, talk to Billy. He's your CV specialist. If you plan to go non-stock, he's convinced me that the CV is the way to go.

Look back at the "Carb Poll" thread. There was a recent discussion about the CV carbs. Lots on info on the jetting.
I use a modern CV on my '49FL. Runs great, starts easy. I'd recommend one.
