My 76' XLH has the original butterfly Keihin w/ OEM air cleaner & exhaust. Runs well w/ a 1.40 MJ & a 0.95 pilot. Local independent V-twin shop had some jets for these old carbs in stock.

I've decided I'm spending WAY too much time on this carb. I have 3 like new S&S carbs sitting on the bench and I'm going to put one on. I had the Keihin lying around and figured I'd give it a go but like I said..... too much time. LOL
