    Default Looking for some help setting up a super e on a shovel. What jets are you running?!

    I have just installed a super e on my stock shovel (80 ci). I know that S&S has suggestions as to a starting point in regards to jetting, however I was hoping someone on here might be running a similar set up in a similar climate/elevation (I realize this may be a stretch). I live in Alberta Canada near the mountains at an elevation of 2116 feet above sea level. I currently have a 2 into 1 exhaust and am running a small air filter. Lastly, my leak down was within reason, nothin major.

    My super e also has a thunder jet, I will send you extra good vibes if you could help me with a shortcut on that one too!

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks!

    Sure it's a stock cam?
    What's after the merge? Open can, restrictive muffler or what?

    You tune a thunderjeted S&S way different than an out the box E...
    Check Thunderjet's website for your new instructions.
    Or cap the thunderjet and tune per normal S&S instructions.

    How about you tell us what jets are in it now...
    Including the air bleed


    But I'd delete the thunderjet
    Put the air bleed back to a 40
    295 idle
    1 1/4 out on the mix
    74 main
    Kill the squirt till your happy with the roll on

    And make damn sure that "small" air cleaner ain't restrictive at all

    i have been running s&s carbs for a long time and am definitely
    familiar with them, with and without the thunderjet.
    On a 80" shovel with T'Jet at 2,000' elev. I would
    start out with; 31 intermediate
    66 main jet
    110 T'jet
    turn off the accelerator pump (screw in all the way, lightly seated)
    then set the idle mixture screw until you get a smooth idle, probably
    around 1.5 turns out would be a good guess.

    when the jets are dialed in, you can then set the accel pump. 1.5 to 2 turns
    out is common, mainly the pump is to aid in cold starting & also to eliminate
    the bog when the throttle is goosed in an abrupt fashion.

    You are a gentleman and a scholar. I really appreciate your help. I will send you a personalized post card of me riding my bike once it's running!

    I forgot to address the air bleed jet, if your carb has the external
    air bleed jet on the side of carb, I would probably start out with a 150 air bleed jet.

    The thunderjet definitely makes the carb more difficult to tune in, report back
    if your first try is not successful.

    I like Revelator's recipe, but at your altitude you will probably get away with a 29.5 intermediate, it will be that or the 31. And I would start at around 85 on the t-jet.

    T-jets are threaded for Mikuni large round jets or small round jets. Easy to find. Mikuni hex main jets will not fit, even though the aftermarket jets supplied with some T-jets have a hex body.
