Question Carbs

I have a 2001 VT750dc.It did have a single Harley carb on it as it is customized. The Harley carb pushes too much fuel so I took it off..Do I have to go back to original twin carbs or is there something else I can do?

Tks

You could probably get all kinds of different carbs to work, but the bottom line is it will run best with the OEM carbs and pipes.

Its.......A FACT!

How does a carb "push" fuel?

Never quite thought that the description "customized" really does justice to the abuse that some owners do to their bikes.

First, you need to know what OTHER things have been done to it.
The stock carbs might not work right now either.

I think the odds are better of you "fixing" the carb that is on it than of trying to go back.

I really think you probably should part it out and get a bike that actually runs right.
