    Are the Evo touring bikes rubber mounted like the twinkies? If not, why not just get a Softail frame and get it hard-tailed and use the motor/trans and all off that bike? Or is that stuff not the...

    I thought the Super B and Super E were the same size carb? Just the E is shorter for more legroom and has the accelerator pump built-in?

    Ahhh ok, that makes sense, the motor is an '02 S&S Long Block so most of the stuff on it is EVOish stuff. I put everything together with the ones I ordered from JP and it worked fine.

    Thanks!
