Re: Chinese Carburetor

I have a chum who builds a lot of bikes who always immediately removes the original carb and bolts on a Chinese carb. He swears by them. I always looked down on it.

A hotted up '71 T25, a hotted up '69 441 and a B50 motor in a B25 chassis. Interestingly enough, back in the day, I had...
