Fitting Kehin CV on the Knuck

I started out with a V-Twin 35-8017 40 MM manifold. Turned down the end of it to match the CV carburetor. I'm gonna use some Green Stripe hose as a connector unless somebody knows something better. I managed to fit the carb perfectly between the FHP Big Bore cylinders and under to oil line. I was worried about gas tank to carburetor clearance but there is plenty.
A repop air cleaner backing plade was modified to fit the CV carb and be in the same location as a stock Knuck air cleaner. The carb and air cleaner are supported by a bracket from the top case stud to the air cleaner backing plate. We had to make a very "CUSTOM" nut for the top case stud.
I threw on my exhaust pipes just to get a feel for them.

I love the Superior Accesories exhaust pipe. What are you running for a muffler?

Are you sure it is a Superior? I haven't been able to find a catalogue that shows it.
Funny you should ask what I want for a muffler. Last year I was outbid on eBay on a small cigar type muffler that had SUPERIOR embossed in large letters down the side of it. I am still looking for another one.

Chris,
Acknowledgment for the effort that I took to offer you what I consider to be a superior alternative to the hose fitting would be common courtesy ......... not subservience.

Chris, The stamping is usually on the bottom of the pipe, at the beginning of the straight section at the rear of the pipe. Very lightly stamped. It should read: Superior Accessories Co. Glendale, Cal. Mo 254

I belive Easy Russ had the one I saw on eBay. It had large raised block lettering spelling out SUPERIOR.

I had known about that type of connector. I chose not to use it because the over length of the manifold, adapter and carburetor would have been longer than the setup I am using. Plus I didn't want all that clutter.
It was appreciated that you posted the photo. But I didn't know that acknowledgement was needed. I post lots of photos and don't expect a reply when I do. I guess that is what makes people different. :?
