Was that set up like a dead man’s throttle, or did it still have the return spring above the slide?

You have to have the return spring on the slide no matter which throttle you use.
I would not recommend trying to use a solid wire cable with a slide carb.

Thanks rick. I’ve been pondering it for a long time now, about how to possibly “lock nut” above and below the slide with the solid inner cable to eliminate the slide spring and have the dead man throttle with a mikuni vm - without becoming a dead man myself!

Someone here was able to fit a regular cable to a internal throttle, don't remember who.

mileage- wife gets consistently 40+ with her super E. Good enough.I like carbs that perform well, will no fuss or muss. The set them and forget about them carbs.Super E fits that. Wifes been running it for 26 years with 1 rebuld.

Me? I wouldn't run anything but an SU. There simply cannot be a morereliable carb that gives good perfromance (please no comments from those never running one, kind of silly in my opinion)

for me, I was always messing with the stock carbs- for various reasons and if others don't have this problem or concern then thats on me, not them.

We have a saying in the coyote business- if it works for you, then you are doing it right.
