The way it has been explained to me is a pumper carb will allow faster acceleration. You don't have to use the ability to accelerate faster but when you do, there goes the mileage.

My dangerous little bit of knowledge:

The pumper is just that, it has an accelerator pump that squirts a little added gas into the fuel air mix under acceleration. The CV carbs (BST) use vacuum on a diaphragm to lift the slide to allow additional gas in.
Some people have drilled the 2 outside slide holes larger and/or moved the main jet needle clip down a notch to improve acceleration.

I opened up the airbox with the KTM "racing" side airbox cover and that seemed to help, some people pull the snorkel right off the top of the airbox also.

I would suggest that you only do one mod at a time so if you really F*ck something up you know what to back out

Mine just started pissing gas out of the drain hose, usually means that the float needle valve seat needs to be replaced so I may as well do a rebuild.
Always better to have the carb on the bench in the middle of riding season than in the winter

Just checked with the boss, and the event that always conflicts with this is being covered by some one else .

So, count me in. Should be there Wednesday evening, Bike only, and Carnivore. Do you still have my contact info?
