    desto, if you and i are speaking about the same thing as far as where the air is coming from... ... if air is leaking in by the carb body and bell that would not be a good thing(like having a hole in your soda straw, you could get the soda, but would have to suck a lot harder ) in front of it from around the boot would probably not be as bad but still undesirable. i would have to see/hear/ride the bike myself to really make a diagnosis, so this is all guessing on my part. what i do know for sure is that the notches to hold the plate in place should be on the air filter side, with the rubber boot going around them.

    Big Desto.. the air lead would make the carb bell less effecient since it will try to suck air from the leak and not through the bell.. as far as fuel touching the seal, you are right, shouldn't happen, but you never know...

    i have a bought and paid for power now as well.. and yes, the little oval hole at the bottom of the bell is closed off on the bell he makes, but that should not make a difference.. i think that, since you have the plate in the wrong way, that it is not sealing tight against the carb and that is creating your problem. i hope you get it figured out..

    i just re read what you wrote.... the notches that hold the plate in place should NOT be on the o ring side.. they are on the side that the rubber boot from the air box clamps around.. if you cut the o ring side i can see why you might have some trouble regardless if you touched the o ring or not..... the plate should be T shaped.. the top of the T should be on the side closest to the AIR FILTER not the slide.... i would remove the plate you have, make a new one with the notch on the air filter side and use some high temp silicone to fix the notches you made on the o ring side.... good luck with it... james

    Gottaroost, i would really suggest the BK/GB mod... it isn't necessarily for stalling, it will limit the duration the pump 'squirts' fuel into the engine. i would pull the plate, do the GB mod, then see what happens, then put the plate back in and you should be pleasantly surprised. James David. quite welcome, thanks for the work on the .pdf file.

    Why would anybody do this?

    Dave, good job, nice pics! and i still like your garage! i am curious, did you buy all the 450 parts from the same guy? did you think about fitting the 426 engine into the 450 frame? just curious... if there was something that would not allow that and that is why you chose this method.. thanks!
