Default What about these cheap CV carb kits?

I always see these super cheap carbs with accessories. Looks too good to be true. Anyone try one of these?

I suspect they may be by the same people who do the "Fake" S&S Super G's.

And I haven't found anything wrong with them.

Because of the 10mm spark plug and the plastic fuel filter I would say these are coming from the same place as the Faje S&S I bought.

And I couldn't find a thing wrong with the one I bought.

You mean nothing except being cheap imitations of a patented American product that supports a practice that's put American companies out of business and supports a country that knowing unleashed a biological terrorist attack on the entire free world? How American of you.

Patents expire.

China's theft of American intellectual property also costs our economy $600 Billion a year. Their entire economy is based on theft.
Tarriffs are coming for anything coming out of this country real soon.

Ideal place for drone strike practice. Remove it from the face of the earth.

These are CHINESE KNOCKOFF'S. BUYER BEWARE! Some work, some don't, so it's basically a crap shoot if ya get a winner. Look closely at the photos for the cast in name, no S&S, Mikuni or Keihin = CRAP.

I hate to stir up the gunner, but can anyone expound a little on those $52 fake S+S things? I'm always curious about what's out there, looks like they've sold some.
