How can I make my super b get l series performance?

Ya. This carb has been great. I never had to do anything to it. And I believe its been on the bike since the bike was just about new. You can't just slam the throttle down though. You gotta roll into it. But it has always performed amazing. This is the first time its given me trouble. It still runs great too. Just drips fuel. I can't believe I left my gas on either. I never do that.

yes,you can't just slam the throttle down,because the super b,has no accelerator pump,like the ''shorty G''. it was originally intended for racing use.

Back in da day the pumper add-on bowl was called "Superbowl"
The one in my photo is a real early Superbowl cause the throttle shaft arm is made from brass, later ones from the same company was aluminum ..

V-T has a re-pop of the pumper available, made overseas ...
