have a 47 el project going and need a carb. thinking about a mikuni since its not a show bike don't want to spend the money for a linkert. i can order a new one but i need to know specs, jet sizes, needle, and 36 0r 38. bike is a chopper with standard bore, andrews n cam, 7.5 to 1 pistons, stock timer, not looking for a hot rod bike just a good runner thats easy to start. any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks CC
