Different Inlet Elbow Sizes

Just bought a brass carb fuel inlet elbow to replace a broken one. It seems this size is supposed to allow greater flow to the carb. I'm keeping the other side carb the stock plastic one since it's not broken. The fuel line I'm using will be 1/4" to each one.
I'm wondering if by having one inlet bigger than the other the amount of fuel in the carb will be affected and thus create some sort of imbalance between the carbs? I'd buy both if I had mo money in tha bank.

Do not think so, as carb floats measure that!

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.

Alright just adjusted that, hopefully it's set right once the carbs are back on. The elbow inlet comes in like 3 days after I register it, and put it back together I'll be on the road for the first time since buying it!

What I have learned on this forum is that fuel elbows are also available at most H-D (st)earerships...

Well, yes and no....the most you may need to do (I did when replacing just one) was to open up the idle screw on the carb without a 1/2 turn...no biggie...but I have both increased now to full flow, and it definitely adds to perf...mostly when under load and at top end....I can be in 5th, at 40mph...twist it, and after a low growl, picks right up, no bog, no nuthin....KC can confirm this...I shift early too, to keep them low, gutteral Harley pipe sounds purrin...before I had the high flow, would have bogged...
