who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

I just did. 30 bucks is expensive as shit, but it just seems worth it. No more spilling float bowls of gas, you can just drain it so easy and 30 second jet changes! sheeeeeeeeeiiiitttttt! anyone have one? what's your take? will it be tuners paradise like I imagine?

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

Who changes jets?

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

Got a clear one for my 21mm phbg for 18 bucks.. Nice.. So nice for jetting

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

I heard if your gas contains 10% ethanol like it does here in OR (they just lace our gas with it out of the pump) those clear float bowls eventually melt. Just something a kid here in PDX claims to have gone through. shrug

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

patience is a virtue, jake.

haha, Mad maxi is right on that, hahahah

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

The Mikuni VM20 comes with the main jet right on the bowl-- love it.

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

Be careful not to get any carb cleaner on it. I spayed mine with a little carb cleaner and the sides melted in. I love the idea of those bowls but there wasn't a lot of thought put into making them.

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

Yeah mine melted from the inside out. I turned my gas on and it started overflowing and the bowl was so misshaped that the float wouldn't float its now a nice milky white color. the ethanol in gas just dissolves that plastic for some reason

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

I had one, was way too sweet, I spent hours upon hours staring at it, letting more gas into it, until I would drain the tank dry, watching floats move up and down made me giggle and cry with joy, but them sweet moments are gone now thanks to 10% ethanol in 89 octane that our lovely gas pumps here in Nebraska offer! Bowl is bent out of shape now and I'm heartbroken :(

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

I love mine. I can't imagine I'd get much tuning done if I had to take all four screws out every time.

i prefer the metal race bowls over the plastic ones. they cost about the same and you don't have to worry about it cracking or melting.

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

The plastic ones bow over time, and leak. I thought my jetting was all wrong. Just turned out that I was getting air in though the float bowl, and it was messing shit up. Threw the plain ol' black plastic one back on and it was fine.

If anyone wants to buy a bent one, it's all yours. E-mail me. haha

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

Can you buy one made out of polycarbonate (LEXAN)?

Re: who choked up cash for that twisty float bowl?

I want one made out of boron...
