Re:HSR 42 Information 4 Years, 5 Months ago  
Did you just let the nuts sit on top of the 42 bracket and let the tension hold them in? I wanted to be able to use the nuts to clamp tight onto something so there was no chance of them coming out. I am thinking of cutting the part of the 42 bracket off and just using my bracket I think that will work better.

Yes ..... the nuts sit on the tubes and I can adjust the cable tension using them. There is no way the cable is coming off ... I had a hell of a time getting them in ... until I figured out the trick.

Re:HSR 42 Information 4 Years, 5 Months ago  
My push cable lower nut is really large and won't move it looks like it has red lock tight on it so it won't screw up far enough to fit into the tube. The pull cable fits nice and snug. I don't like the way the cables rub on the 42 bracket so I am cutting it off and using my fabricated bracket to hold everything. That way the cables don't rub on anything except the inside of the cable shield. These cables are the ones off my 07 Silverado and I put my 2 + cables on the Silverado because I have the medium risers. I should have everything finished in a couple of days and be able to fire it up with the carb on. I need to crank it up and adjust the idle and TPS and just see how it does I can't ride it yet. Did you et your choke cable yet?

Maxair came through and shipped express so it arrived on Sat. Going down to pick up all the parts on Tues. Supposed to be a nice warm day for a parking lot carb teardown.

Doc, did you order the short idle screw too? I think it's a must along with the choke cable.

No. I think I'm going to rig something up that mounts to the choke bracket.

Might extend the PMS also.

I got the short screw and realized after everything I could have done a mod on the long one. You just cut the cable right above the hard part on the carb end and then drill the knob center out and epoxy it on the the shortened carb end.

Sounds like something a retired person with 2 bikes would do...

Re:HSR 42 Information 4 Years, 4 Months ago  
So... looking at prices on bikebandit.com it seems REALLY tempting to "go big or go home". With 42s at 280ish 45s at 350ish and 48s a 404 it seems like even if i dont bore my cylinders or actually alter my engine i am still getting more power out of the 48 for only a little over a hundred bucks more than the 42...

I always say anything worth doing is worth overdoing but i would love to have some WAY WAY WAY more knowledgable people tell me im being stupid... or preferably, to go for it

Seriously though I am concerned about reliability, engine wear and, gas mileage (im just assuming that ill get more performance out of the 48). How and by how much will these items be effected by going with a 48 rather than a 42?
