Ditching the stock carb and putting a TM40 pumper carb on my LC4 was the best mod I ever made to it. Make the bike what it should be.

Flanny told me the pumper carb was the best mod ever but hard on the fuel supply, never tried it myself.

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.

Yeah, I'm just not sure how much I lose by way of mpgs. I've got a minimum distance to cover with only an 18l tank and maybe some bottles in a bag.

Will it matter if it doesn't run right as is?














Prolly won't be able to make it until Friday, Clark.
