Since its introduction in 1975, the 1-7/8 inch S&S Super B carb has been a favorite of high-performance enthusiasts the world over. It has undergone a few changes over the years, but it is still true to the original idea. A simple, no frills, high-performance carb that works well in a variety of applications.
The S&S Super B gas carburetor has a 1-7/8 inch throat and is recommended for use on Harley-Davidson® big twin or Sportster® models up to about 100 cubic inch engines with any degree of performance modifications. Carburetor only, .031 and .072 jets included.
Two Cable Throttle Required – S&S Super B carburetors require the use of a two cable, pull open/pull closed throttle assembly. Any chassis including 1980 and earlier stock Harley-Davidson® models equipped with a single cable throttle mechanism requires pull open/pull closed type. S&S offers a high quality two cable throttle assembly for this purpose. (See S&S throttle assemblies for more information). Stock models from 1981 to present have a two cable throttle, which can easily be modified to work with the Super B carburetor. Many 1979-’80 shovelhead engines may be equipped with either o-ring or band-style heads. Check before ordering.
S&S does not recommend polishing or chrome plating Super E & G carburetors. Our repair department has seen many carbs with passages plugged with polishing compounds, and some carbs that had been destroyed because the polishing or chrome plating had altered critical machined surfaces. Recommended for Racing Only – S&S Super B carburetors are not legal for use in California on motor vehicles operated on public highways or in
other states where similar pollution laws may apply. The user shall determine the suitability of the product for his or her use and shall assume all risk and liability in connection therewith.
