    Octane carburators on Virage 700

    Hi, i have a copy of a polaris virage 700 and i also have a Octane and i dont use the stock Octane carburators, what about installing the dual Keihin carbs on the Virage?

    That would be the Yong-Wang PWC - correct?

    Do the Octane carbs physically fit the Yong-Wang manifold and throttle linkages?

    The stock Octane carburetors don't have an idle position, but that can be corrected.

    You may need to change the carb jetting.

    Yes its Yongwang...

    I think the octane manifold fit the virage, will check it up tonight.

    i already have idle...

    the biggest question is if i need to change the jetting :S then maybe it isnt worth it...

    LOL!

    First i had some problems with the carburator but no its fine, i changed to a keihin orginal carb

    Other then the carbproblem these machines are good for that price...

    But now i have an extra dualcarbs so i thought it was a good idea to use that but i dont know if it would make such big difference?

    If you're thinking of adding the twin carbs and doing absolutely no other modifications, I would say don't bother. Your time could be better spent in other areas.

    If the Wang and Polaris parts are truely interchangable, then there are other things you could look for.

    What are the water conditions that you most often ride? Are you looking for a little more top speed?

    Hmm i wasnt really up for alot of modifications, just thought it would give me some hp if i changed the carbs and maybe did chop of som metal from the domes.

    Every part on this china machine seems to be exactly the same as polaris exept from the multifunction display.

    One thing about this machine i dont understand is the 95hp, the real virage is also told to have 95hp but its the same cc, bore, stroke as yamaha superjet and the superjet (older) that only had one carb had 63hp.

    how is it possible for the virage to have 30hp more on same cc? :O
