    Non-OEM Mikuni SBN converted by Full Spectrum, Novi, or Blackjack. The Blackjacks are the cheapest, and work very well.

    I think Novi and Full Spectrum have better snap/response and a little easier to tune. Blackjack, Redtops offer a little more topend but can be tricky to get holeshot right with tripple pipes. 48mm Novi carbs were my favorite. Never really like Bucksot at all.

    I don't have Novi's on my triple's but I have them on my X2 and they have been one of the best mods. Tim also has great customer service. My first carb was used off of the forums and he helped me tune my setup. He even allowed me to email pictures of them before I bought them used from another member so he could tell me what generation they were.

    OEM i bodies modded or SBNs modded? Modding the stock carbs result in a slightly different setup than modding the aftermarket Mikuni SBNs. Call Art at Jet Works. He can tell you the differences.
