Pony\'s and Nikki\'s and Webers oh my...

Ok,

Here goes. I am sold on the Pony carb as a replacement over stock so I can desmog my rig. So now what about the other carbs I am reading about. Like the Nikki carb swap on izook. Are there any other carbs folks are using that are dirrect bolt-on and are easy to work with and adjust? I also like the fuel bowl window. Had that setup on my last toy and I liked it allot. Please we can get these carbs here in the States. What are the most popular swaps and any pro's abd cons that go with them

thanks
Dave

ya, they take FOREVER to warm up. I'm usually not patient enough to let it warm up either. I find my engine warms up before the carb does.

Re: Pony\'s and Nikki\'s and Webers oh my...

i don't know anything about pony's and nikki's... warming up a weber might not be a problem depending on where you live. I live in Vancouver, BC, and it can get cold. Warming up the carb wasn't a problem in the summer though, but since winter hit, and especially the last few days (my sammi has been frozen shut, locks frozen, doors frozen) its taken a little while to warm up.

if you sit there reving the motor at around 3000 for 5 minutes it'll be good. But I usually warm up for 30 seconds, and go right on the freeway, and then it doesn't warm up for 5-10 minutes... kinda sucks when your on the freeway...

Re: Pony\'s and Nikki\'s and Webers oh my...

does it use a manual or electric choke? will it idle without giving it gas all the time?

Re: Pony\'s and Nikki\'s and Webers oh my...

Don't let this warming up business scare you. I live up around Toronto, Canada where it gets COLD! And I just let the Zuk run for about a minute or 2 max and it's fine. If you don't let it warm up, it'll likely stall out on you at every stop, until it does warm up. But then again, all carbs run poor when cold. The Weber is great in that it's "easy" to work on and provides huge gains in performance. Well worth the $$$. I picked mine up from 4x4 Connection for a great price. Back when it was purchased, it was the cheapest place.
Go for the Weber, you won't be disappointed.
Good luck,
Steve
