I'm doing research about SHA tuning and those slides are really expensive. A throttle slide by its self is 9 bucks over at treatland or ebay or mopedjunkyard, even the dang plastic slides cost that much. What the dang? I bought an entire clone SHA 14:12 for $17. What the double dang?
And hey, check this out:
I compared the ebay clone to my genuine Dellorto carbs (got a small pile of them) it seems that the clones have the performance mods already done: slide slant, short needle valve , bigger throat bore, emulsion tube drilled out, even a brass insert pressed into idler hole. Slick stuff for $17. What the tripple dang?
