  • Ported Manifold - Is this one OK?


    I picked this up off the for-sale section on one of the bike forums years ago and never got around to installing it. Well I have the whole carb off the bike doing some maintenance so now is the time, if ever.

    Take a look at this ported manifold and tell me if you guys would use it. Looking through I can see metal but I don't know if I should be concerned.

    Part of me doesn't wanna break the seal of the existing factory manifold. Is ported manifold really worth it? If so would you use this one?

    Yes that is fine, a little more than most take off in the middle but ok and maybe not enough to the openings. Take the Orings out and flat sand the surface on a sheet of glass or granite with some fine wet sandpaper.

      I did as you said and wet (oil) sanded the surfaces on a piece of granite with 1000 grit followed by 1200 for a smooth finish and put it in.

        You should be able to notice a nice difference in performance.

          Trex,

          Can you report back when you get it running about the performance difference?
