Hi all, I had a friend (Who is good with carb rebuilds) look at mine and he commented that he never saw a carb with the extra circuit like mine has. Its just below the main needle in the carb throat. Does anyone know if the later model 1500's still have this circuit? Thanks!

Are you thinking of getting later carb.s? If so, note that there might be more to it than you think.

Pretty common amoung Keihin CV carbs. The transistion slot will draw mixture around the second shoulder of the idle mix screw. Is your guy more familiar with the smaller one-per cylinder carbs perhaps Mikuni (they use a slide cut for transition) or ?

That transition port is there throughout the 1500 build years (same circuit is in the Harley versions of these carbs as well)
