    can an air fuel seperator be hooked up to stock carbs?

    Really asking for my raider, but I guess it applies to all carbs with integral fuel pumps. Can a separator be plumbed in to the feed line and still retain the built in fuel pumps?

    Thanks

    NO, you have to have fuel pressure to allow a fuel separator to work. A seperator is really a pressurized chamber where you have an orficed bleed at the top. This bleeds a small amount of fuel, and all the air, back to the tank, while the pressurized fuel goes to the carbs. Its really a clever deal. If you have an external fuel pump, which is how Group K's seperator kit works, then you have to (or perhaps "should") remove the check valves from the existing carb pump/s so they do not effect fuel delivery from the external pump.

    This is what I did, when I installed the seperater. I rebuilt my carbs and left the check valves out of all 3 carbs. And installed a external fuel pump between the tank and the seperater.

    Don't GPR's have a seperator from the factory, just behind the bucket?
