Carb modification

Hey all, Last weekend I did a carb mod that gave me really good throtle response and
somemore tourqe and higer RPMs.Tom gave me some info on it.Heres what I did.Took
the carb off, Took the butterfly out and you will see a restrictor plate its about half a inch
and wraps around the bottom of the butterfly.What I did was got some tin snips and cut off
what I could of the restrictor plate.Then carefuly wrap the butterfly in a towel and easly
place it in a vise.Use a file and smooth out the edges.CAUTION: LEAVE ALL THE RIVETS IN,
DO NOT REMOVE THE RIVETS! Also be careful not to scar the butterfly at all.Carefuly
reinstall to the carb. Put back on the intake, hook up the cables and plugs.Disconnect
the battery for a while then start up! Real easy!Contact Diver or me for pics of this project.
I would recomend this because ut really helps!!
