yeah the problem is when doing the carb swap into the single, then modifying it to supply enough fuel, they don't have jets large enough for sale.. so its drill bit type shit. idk.. I rode it to work this morning and it cruises very well, only having issues on the top end. maybe ill try the garden hose trick. lol.
What's the size of the single carb vs the OEM carbs ? IE TOTAL choke and jet flow? Sounds to me like the single carb is plain running out of delivery capacity at the top end.

I WAS looking at a single carb conversion at one stage for my Cafe Creme Boardtracker, I was going to use an SU carb. Very simple to fine tune, inexpensive [ here in the UK at least ] and parts are readily available and cheap. Available in a good range of basic choke sizes - I'd settled on a 2" version before CC was backburnered..

BIGGER CARB!!!
yes that might just be the answer here.. like I had said earlier in the thread, I never even opened this carb, it was on a 2-1 intake I bought in a box of parts, just was like "what the hell lets try it" and its ran pretty good. I believe to my knowledge this is a stock 920 carb, saying that because it has that pressed in pilot jet. I could be wrong but I don't think they did that with the 750 carbs.. ive been riding this thing to work everyday the past week with no hiccups of any kind, (other than on the top end under full throttle, but I rarely open it up) and the plan is to ride to Chicago this weekend with a buddy.. last night I got the pipes off and used the DEI exhaust wrap sealer, aka charcoal grill paint. looks much better though. tonight I might play with the carb one more time before the Chicago venture.

what a weekend.. put lots of miles on the ole bat bike. for those not following along closely, i rode from grand rapids to chicago and back this past weekend, and was an awesome trip.. was a little nervous because we had just gotten my buddies gs450 up and running, but hadnt put more than 50 or so miles on it. but everything went awesome, we had such a great time. we opted out of the highway route and decided to take the red arrow expessway that travels down and around right on the lake, got some pretty good pics along the way. bike consumed 3.5 gallons on the trip down averaging about 55mph, and just over 4 gallons for the highway trip back, avg somewhere around 75mph.. still having some issues with the top end and the bike falling on its face, so i just took her easy and kept the bike in the sweet spot, no need to get crazy downtown chicago.. or anytime for that matter. this week im going to set a goal to get my kickstand shortened, and start doing my homework on the starter rebuild, thing sounds just awful. also going to figure out what im doing with my number plate.

Sounds like an awesome trip, glad it went smoothly. Still amazed every time I see your bike. Such a tough look from the front wheel to the rear.
