I don't recall using the words "trust me" nor would I expect anyone to buy something based on a manufacturer's word. Then again a company like Harley, Dynojet, or others don't publish the full specs on internal parts, electronics, or mechanisms. As a manufacturer I've spent the years and money on R&D and like any other vendor I'm less than willing to help my competitors reverse engineer all my hard work. We can't stop anyone from doing this on their own.

This forum (CV Performance's support forum) is for service, support, and assistance with any of our products and I'm certainly pleased to answer any questions that may help with selecting or using these products.

As far as the mention that certain needles have been discontinued by the MOCO that is true. The N65C, NOK series, and many of the earlier needles are already listing as discontinued (at least on the west coast), though you can get lucky at some dealers who stocked up knowing that this day would eventually come. In California a large number of dealerships have already started to back away from anything related to tuning a carburetor due to the C.A.R.B. coming down on businesses actively involved in altering emissions. Talking to some of these dealerships lately it is evident that some are even scared to make a recommendation so I'm not surprised that some dealers would say they couldn't find a reference to a particular needle.

But I digress. The needles we make have been tested extensively with various models, but we really aren't in the business of custom manufacturing individual needles to those looking for only a specific measurement... unless someone is looking for us to run 500 pieces

toe: I didn't see where you mentioned what needle you were testing but if you email me or PM me maybe we can figure out if I have a needle that would work for you.

Ah Yost, that's another animal altogether. I'll be honest and state right up front that I won't begin to try to diagnose anything to do with their products, but I'm sure you'll find others elsewhere on XLF who could chime in. Yost's tube will perform differently with various needles compared to those same needles installed with an original or cvp emulsion tube. Sorry I don't have more info for your situation.

Default Need shim ON CVP Velocity Needle?

Just about to swap my emulsion tube and stock needle for a CVP versions.

http://www.cv-performance.com/cvp-velocity-needle/

http://www.cv-performance.com/cvp-ve...emulsion-tube/

The stock needle has a plastic shim (0.81mm thickness) under it,

Should I continue to use the shim under the new CVP Velocity needle?

I am running a 2004 roadster :

TC88A Rico Jester III map,
Stock CV carb,
EZ adjust screw,
45 Pilot,
180 main,
K&N air filter,
SE II Slip ons, with thunder city copy type baffles

Stock Cams (AFAIK)

Thanks

As feedback for CVP, when I placed my order for all your other great parts, I passed on your needle for this very reason. Perhaps at least some explaination of how it blends N65C and the 1200S NOKK would be all it takes. Is it the little bit of extra richness of the early CVs (w/o accel pumps?) on the big end without going as lean as the original N65C and profiling more like the richer mid throttle NOKK in it's taper?

Sure, needle freaks like us here would understand and appreciate exact actual specs but at lease some expanded product discription (salesmanship) will almost assuradly better motivate the novice and better satisfy the more experienced. With all of your other parts to choose from, the CVP needle becomes the mariginal item in the cart and jepordizes that last $17 item sale.

If I may also offer another suggestion...
Perhaps market your kits with emphesis more towards the savings rather than additional contents. You know, on the basic kit, SAVE XX% over the individual prices! SAVE YY% on the next level and WOW, save even more at ZZ% with the master kit! They are already sold on your products and want them all so now promote the fantastic savings with the kits and raise your average ticket and increase your marginal revenue. Sell the product then sell the deal. Give them a reason to spend more.

(Sorry, it's the gas powered CPA coming out in me )
