Yeah, I know the advantage of a pump/pulse pump/membrane/diaphragm/whatever you want to call it carbs is that they aren't really effected by g-forces, and that bikes don't really need that due to the whole leaning thing. The main reason I'm interested is the whole lack of jets thing. How cool would it be to be able to adjust your mixture without even having to stop the bike?

That said, it seems like there might be a few other advantages too.

On a single variated bike, the engine moves around so the float bowl is always changing orientations. It's not a huge change, but it's not insignificant either. Maybe it doesn't make a difference, but it seems like it would. Also, the engine wouldn't necessarily die if you dumped it. That's not really an advantage on a street bike, but it would be really handy on a race bike.

What exactly was the issue with the Tillotson you had?
