    Andrew Buck does not even make carbs for PWC anymore to my knowledge. Tim at Novi has been a great help to me and will give endless help via phone or email. Novi IMO is hands down a better carb.

    I talked to andrew and he said they just dont make them anymore because there is no high demand for them. BTW he makes all his money in off road stuff. Bottom line you put your money where you make the money. He made more off parts for off roading so that is what he went to. IMHO i have buckshot purples, i love them and they work good for me. But not all can say that. thats why you have ford, chevy, and mopar guys. I believe it is personal preference.

    Thanks for the info guys. I am slowly gathering up parts for a build on my blaster. Friend of a friend has a pair of Buckshots off a superjet.. I could buy them somewhat cheap $300-350 I think. Sounds like I should hold out for a pair of Novi's.
    I had never heard of Buckshots... but everyone has heard of Novi's!

    Thanks again for the info!

    It is because he wasnt as big or made them in the production of what novis were made. I feel buckshots are good. Long time ago back in the 1998 to 1999 buckshots were used a lot on the gp 1200's. All they are is a mikuni carb with a couple tweeeks on them. Nothing really big.
