Mikuni! The only reason Id go for an S&S carb would be running an ignition system with a knock sensor.

S&S for me. Easy to tune, great look, awesome performance. Yeah, it doesn't have the three jet system, but that can be fixed with a thunder jet kit. I'm making the same HP and mpg with similar builds that have a mikuni.

I guess I also have a thing for made in America with awesome customer service.
