    Hey Jim,
    I have an 03 VL1500 w/stage 3 mod, that is having some carb issues. My fuel mileage seems to be going down and noticed that my pipes are a little sooty. I've tried adjusting carbs but to know avail. GMan rejetted after new pipes. Since your in Cali, I'm in Northern Cali, was wondering what you would charge to give a once over on carbs? Or do you think it might me something else?

    Jim I was wondering if you might be able to answer a queation for me. I have an 02 1500LC that I play real hard with and have the carbs built they way you told me about to really have fun with. Think the mains are 175 and 172.5,somewhere around there. Anyway question is would there be any benefit to changing the air pilot jets since they are the only thing stock in it.

    Have you seen or worked on any 1500's that had issues in the top side of the engine (valves, guides, etc.) ? All these years the 1500 has been bullet-proof as far as I've seen.
