My understanding is the CV carbs give better drivability & fuel economy while sacrificing some performance.
Anybody tried it?
Keietech makes a pretty good jet kit which you can buy here http://www.kientech.com/
Don't need to change anything just new jets and a needle. It runs richer and more responsive. Also I have a DG slip on exhaust which helps more. You don't need to rejet either if you have the jet kit and the exhaust.
