I've had no problems at all with mine. Been running it for 12 years now. Very simple to maintain.

Performs excellent, but mounted onto an 89” S&S stroker Motor. Nice throttle response and excellent mileage.

I've got two, one on the sportster and the other on my panhead. Pretty easy to tune, parts readily available, good customer support from S&S.

One on my 1988 XL1200, stage II heads, Super E
One on my 2001 FXDXT, 107ci, SII heads and cams, Super G

Both run fine, pull strong.

Only complaints I've heard are from people who have issues tuning them.
But the S&S instructions for jetting are spot on if you ask me.
I have to tweak them slightly for my altitude (7k feet) but that is rare.
