Nikki Carbs work fantastically when left in their original packaging, on the shelf, in the shop. No way near as good an instrument as a SU.

PML.... Found my old Vizard book on Friday, and spent most of the last days reading it again.... the bit on carbs was most interesting, especially when looking at the flow capabilities of the SU vs a webber

For the street engine, the SU in what every guise HIF or HS, is perfectly capable of delivering att the carbeuration you need..

Stick with the SU !

Yea, I'v just changed from 45 DCOE webbers to the HIFF44 Su on my 1425, I found in the cold, the webbers were putting more of a strain on the starter motor when trying to fire her up and they weren't really as responsive (maybe they needed a tune?!). Anyway, I'm picking the car up tonight after having the SU fitted so I'll find out tonight what the difference is, I'm keeping the webbers for track days though! Castle Combe here we come!!
