    I'll write a full review on my set of carbs after I've ridden the bike more, but I rode Murray's ratty CX when I got there. I must say... I've never popped a wheelie on a CX in third gear. Sure, it took a little work, but holy shit... If you're thinking about pulling the trigger on a set, DO IT.

    Sorry I missed the chance to meet you on this visit, Charles. I saw Murray the other day, and saw the work he's done. Impressive indeed.

    Yeah I'm on board with these things too! Murray called me yesterday wondering why I fell off the face of the planet after I got my carbs...its because I cant stay off of the bike now! It was a fun ride before but it's a freaking blast now!!!! The intakes look so great that I've had several people tell me they thought they were factory upgrades. If you're doubting or curious about Murray's work follow Charles' advice and PULL THE TRIGGER!!!!! You will NOT regret it...unless you're concerned about gas mileage

    Its not THAT big of a difference in mileage. The main reason it drops is because you get throttle happy and just want to make the thing run like it you know it will. I'm going to fill up again today. I'll post mileage from my around town riding and again tomorrow when I return from my trip to get hwy mileage.
