I am not pushing this item but just wanted to let people in need know a good deal.
I have had mine is service just a week or two and I MUST WARN you
The mechanism apparently transmits force a lot more efficiently and I wasn't cautioned of the danger of bending a float tab if the cable end-play threaded thingy at the throttle isn't JUST right. But they just figger I guess you're SUPPOSED to KNOW what JUST RIGHT is. I didn't, and my carb float tab bent, and the bike flooded out 50 yards from my start.
Somebody with more knowledge can advise you on this. I wish they had advised ME. I was without a bike for a week(my ONLY transportation) And I replaced the carb thanks to the excellent delivery from a Wisconsin vendor
Everything seems fine now. Tomorrow I 'll make a trial ride for distance
