cvk34 size..

Hi guys new here, I need to fit a restrictor in my carb (stupid law) but to get one made I need to know the outer diameter of the carb where it fits into the inlet rubber which is bolted to the engine. Also does anyone else get an electric shock off the ht lead on the left?

Where do live that has such a law and why would you grab the plug wire when the bikes running?

I pull my leads while the bike is running to test my cylinders, don't know if thats the correct way, but I don't get shocked.

You shouldn't get shocked unless there is a break in the insulation or you're standing barefoot in a puddle of water.

There was a discussion on this awhile back, majority seemed to say not a good idea to pull plug wire while engine running.... But no clear cut issues found if you do.

He must be from France....they only allow slow bikes there...

Evolution mark of the beast (evo666). as knifemaker said if you can tell us where your from it will help determine your laws, and what exactly needs to be done.

Suggest new Spark Plug wires / caps.
Plug Wires: Dennis Kirk has 7mm wire for $2.99 in a 72" length the part # is 20- 21.
Ad two NGK end caps part # 20-306 @ $3.30 and two end caps part # 20- 789 $2.40 each.
(Requires approx.. 60”) Spark Plug Wire Replacement:
2 x 11.5" long
1 x 14.5" long
1 x 20.0" long
You should consider buying NGK plug ends if you haven't already. They are great looking and my directions are based on using them.

Never heard of such a thing. If the bikes illegal how it get into the country?

Or, are you altering it for some kind of tax reason?

If the plug wire is shocking your leg you might want to replace the wires and caps....and make sure all spark plugs are gapped right. The right wire has been known to spark against the cylinder head, but not sure how you'd get shocked if your not grounded.


As for the diameter of the carb, can't you just measure it?
