Carburetors are a bit magical. They drink from a tank of volatile liquid, mix in oxygen they found laying around and create a perfectly proportioned explosive mixture, yet allow you to control the delivery with a subtle twist of your wrist. Magic, indeed. The folks at S&S Cycle have long ago sorted the wizardry of mixing air and fuel into a joyous recipe for horsepower and happiness and their latest blacked out version takes that to the next level.
Having previously only been produced in limited quantities and sizes, the Blacked out Super E and Super G will now be readily available for your next big twin, FXR or HD® Sportster® build. These highly tunable carbs can be had through your local dealer as well as direct from S&S Cycle.
Full Moon Nathan picked up this vintage drag bike a couple years ago . . . and he keeps messin' with it, kinda restoring it, and upgrading a little. It runs an original KR loop, small stroker motor, and some other little goodies . . . but it's fairly stock - and was run in Indiana or Ohio back in the early 70s. He's planning on makin' a pass at the upcoming Meltdown Drags in Byron, Illinois in July.
I guess it wasn't cost effective to design the water jacket around the port? Wouldn't you have a more consistent temperature? It must not take much coolant to make a difference, since the passages look rather small?
A lot of extra weight (and crap) just to cool that damn cylinder head . . . I guess they call this progress? I don't know why I care, since I'll keep going places on my 50s and 60s machinery anyway . . .
The proto-type liquid cooled Harley-Davidson MX (above). I guess if all these marketing ideas would have hit on all (or at least 1) cylinder(s) . . . and these protos sold . . . sales could have been through the roof ! I guess that's why these companies keep trying new things, and implementing new ideas into their products. (Is that Larry Roeseler in the air ? . . . or Bruce?)
