OK, I'm going to link to a 'different site' (the one people hate because they don't play well with others/morons)

This thread needs to be a sticky that we can point people to, or cut and paste the contents maybe as a pdf file for easy reference.

I did ask the OP to post it here.
 There could be a copywrite issue copying it which is why I posted a link to different site

Well, without looking at it, the first problematic words I see are "pods" and "cv carbs". CV carbs are infamous for not playing well with pods, regardless of whether it's a brand name or cheap chinese crap.

 Yep, BUT, it's possible to make them play nice with K&N or Uni's, it's totally impossible with some of the cheaper 'pods'
Mikuni's are actually not too difficult to get working right, Kei-Hin are a different matter but not impossible. (although I'm only familiar with 'fixing' CB350/360 carbs)

Ive been trying to convince my friend about this for the past year.  she built an absolutely beautiful XS650 chopper and ran those pods with stock carbs and jetting.  I told her she was gonna fry her rings at the very least, and sure enough while riding from NY to CA for Born Free she fried her top end.

Damn chopper folks are all about aesthetics.

Oh I know, i was offering to help her, but "it seems to work ok" was basically where it would end.  I run VM34s on mine, awesome.
