gp carbs on raider 1100
I picked up a set of 1st gen gp carbs for my raider. From reading up i have found out that the stock gp jetting should be Ok, but i have a few more questions.
Will the boysen power reeds that i have on the raider cages fit on the gp cages? Are they worth it?
Will the gp airbox fit in the raider or do i need to get some F/A's
Anyone know where i should start the needles?
Where do the additional pulse lines need to go? A pic of them from a stock gp12 would be awesome!
Will my stock throttle cable work or should i use the one from the GP? I have both.
What kind of rpm's should i see with these carbs and an island racing 11/17 solas J?
My engine is totally stock right now with 120 psi, no porting, ect., and i am at 630ft asl. I do plan on ripping out the chokes before i install these because i already have a primer set up.
Any help is appreciated

Hello addicted.welcome to the forum...........
The Raider reeds are shorter than the gp reeds ,so they will not fit on the gp cages, they ARE worth it, get a set of even stock reeds ,and you will get more RPM, from increased area= airflow.
The GP airbox will fit in the Raider, but the flame arrestors are also worth it..
The pulse lines need to be drilled into the intake just about where the stock one is then you can put pressed in nipples, or you can use a tap and install some fittings that screw in, I will send a picture of mine tommorow, DONT "T" off of the one line
The Raider stock cable will work fine, I use the stock one on my "46's"
The prop should show you about 6700/6800 rpm, you need to get a tach...
Call J-me for your carbs
Remove the chokes............. if you need any more help let us know.....

Thanks man, but this sport is the only thing keeping me sane right now. There's just something about working on something and actually fixing it or improving it that is theraputic for me. . . unlike the medical profession.
Bull, i sent you my email addy. hope you got it.

OK guys, I havn't had time to install them yet, but I did get a chance to tear them apart and go through them. Also got the pulse fittings and all that.
Low jets are staggered. Hi's are not. Totally opposite of the raider set up. Should I keep it that way?
It also seems like the popoff is staggered. And now i'm getting confused. I downloaded the gp manual from here, (very cool!) and it is calling for 1.5 n&S The ones that were in there were 1.2. I plan on dropping some new 1.5's in there and setting the popoff at about 30 across the board. Does that sound right?
Lemme know! I want to run this biotch this weekend!
