So, how often does the Norton (British motorcycle) owner change slides or needle positions?? Once, possibly twice, during the run of the tuning? Yes it is a PITA, but I'd rather do that than shim the old Isolastics...baz said:No not without removing the carb top, although that would be brilliant!, Not sure about a t150 Trident set up that looks like yours, but a t160 really is a pain to change a needle position or slide cutaway,also the seals on the carb tops can be fiddly ,also wear in the bushes just a few thou throws the carbs out of balance, having said all that I'd much rather have a gantry than a cable splitter so mark me down for one , cheersmadass140 said:thanks for the input, The sole idea of this conversion is to eliminate out of sync cables. Now to make it easier to adjust
needle position without removing the top of the carb... I'll have to put my thinking cap on...
