    Dellorto Carbs on CL175

    Anyone running Dellorto Carbs on a CL/CB 175?

    I bought the kit from Cappellini and those guys are complete f*cks. I ordered the verticle motor/verticle head "kit" to avoid clearance issues with the frame.
    The right side doesn't clear the frame. I message them to make sure the sent the correct components. Their reply was to cut and post the listing for what I bought.
    No help at all.

    I had a friend help get them mounted. Now it's time to jet. Since I bought a "kit" I thought they'd be jetted somewhere close as a baseline and would need to be tweeked. I messaged
    them to ask what the baseline jetting was and they replied that "we don't know. whatever they come with from the factory".

    Found a listing for the single carb on Canadian eBay and their listing says stock is 110 main 50 idle. I was running knock-off PE24s with 102/40

    I need to buy jets to tune, but am not sure where to start.

    Suggestions on baseline jetting to get started? Start with the 102/40?

    I thought Tanner had dellortos on his Honda. Maybe talk to him. Or might make a phone call to Frank Giannini.

    There's an auction near you next weekend. You going?

    I think Matt is running CR's. Definitely not Dellorto.

    I bought jets above and below what comes from the factory as well as in the range I was using in the PE's. I'll try Giannini and Joe Koury.

    I'll probably go to the auction, although I've never had any luck at Bob Sholley's auctions. I knew Ken Smith and he had a lot of good stuff. Passed away much too early.

    Any chance you'll be at Kershaw?

    I'm planning on Kershaw but my motor is still in California and my chassis is in Massachusetts. If I get everything back in time I'll go.

    Very common carb to find on a trials bike, here's a video worth watching, probably covers way more then you need to know.

    The 50/110 that came with the carbs was not close.

    Dyno says 40/102.

    We'll see at Kershaw.
