Man - I wish I could help you on the stiffer carb vacuum slide springs... But I wanted to post to state that Triumph is beeeeeeeaaaauuuuutiful! I saw on the other thread you posted that you look as though you have a metal air box, which is pretty cool, given I have never seen one like it. Did you fab it yourself?

i think you would have to measure spring rates on what you got to start with a known quantity.

how about doubling stock spring? inter coil 2 per carb? or cut in half and add an extra half?
I have a full engines worth of bolts and hardware. if you are missing somthing specialty hit me up I will share.

Agreed.. there needs to be an edit to first post with a running tally of specs and parts on this build as it progresses. I too am interested in tire sizes and brand. Kinda look like the TKC80s i was looking at a little while back.

One thing to keep in mind with carbs is a decent plenum volume makes it a little easier to tune(less pulces)

Where did you source your headers? The exhaust flange at the engine looks like the stock pipe. Did you have to relocate the oil filter to make room for the turbo?

Also, on the header pic, it looks as though you have a nice cafe project there (in the background).

I made the headers from stock ones and 1.5in mandrel bends.for the oil filter I used a oil cooler block and removed the stock one then mounted a big oil cooler

So no oil filter? Interesting. How frequently do you change the oil? I know on my daughter's Nighthawk 250, there's no oil filter. We just change it every 1000 or so miles.
