Ed, I'd have to look it up, but I think the M-41L has 1/16" larger venturi than the M-51. As I recall, the "L" was used on the early big twin SV [VL]. It would be a mild performance upgrade to the M-51. Conan, Panic you guys are the Harley carb experts, what do you say. 'dog

The M41L was for 80" V's, just as the M51L was for 80" U's.

Hi Ed,
I have an M51 and a 36VLH that wants the M41L to be more correct. If you have any interest in trading. Let me know. brian9607@hotmail.com
Thank You! Brian.
