    46's should be plenty. What's up with the dual high output fuel pumps? you should only need one of those to run the 46's. The bigger the carb throat the more issues arise when it comes to tuning with weather conditions.

    NOVI's are better than modded Mikuni's anyday...I had some Buckshot Mikunis and fought them every step of the way

    the RXP is in mod mode...kinda in pieces right now. the ol 96'er wouldnt take much to pull out and go ride. I have a lake here that is heated by a nuke plant...two basins are 65+ year round. Come on down!

    Yep Clinton Lake. Check it out on Bing Maps...you can see where the hot water ditch runs right into the basin. Just got to watch out for the three eyed fish with hooves

    Another plus with getting the novi maxiflow 46's is you can get ahold of Tim at Novi and he is great with getting you the right jetting specs for your setup +++++. He helped me with my 42 novi's!!!!
