Apparently whenever you open the flow on your exhaust by attaching loud pipes you may also need to adjust the fuel to air mixture in your carburetor. So with the help of my friend, James Calvery, we dug into the frame to pull out the carbs and fit them with different sized fuel jets and needles. The Sabre has two carbs that fit SNUGLY in the frame on top of the engine and under the gas tank. We figured it'd take a couple of hours to do it but it took about 4 and a half. There was fudge to consume and stories to tell of course.
The key to this project was to bum James' garage, tools and expertise. He wasn't intimidated by the 15 hoses attached to the carbs. I was. My favorite part of the night was watching him ride the bike through his sleeping neighborhood at midnight at full throttle shooting blue flames out the pipes! Think "Grease 2".
