I know, I know, it's about darn time! I've had my single carb kit for a couple years now, and today was the day! I gotta tell ya, she's running better than ever! I know there will be some fine tuning as I go along, but I am impressed so far! I do have a question, what have you all done to hook up your throttle cable? I am using the Solex pic 34 with the stock linkage. The manifold I bought doesn't say anything about hooking up the linkage, it just says to do it. Is there a sleeve I can get that the stock throttle cable end will go inside, or what did you do? Right now my cable is held on with a very technical device that I'm sure will last for years to come (zip ties). I will upload my proof of running video as soon as I put it on YouTube.

Where you have the throttle cable connected to the carb, I have a barrel clamp:

Then I have a sleeve that the cable slips into and the sleeve slides into the barrel clamp similar to this...

I've been looking for this setup ever since cmyoch asked a similar question this morning, but so far no luck...

It came with my carb and manifold, but I bought mine used from another member. It shouldn't be hard to find a barrel clamp the size of that opening in the linkage and just run the cable through the hole. It will require sacrificing a pull cable though.

Try this one...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Solex-Carburettor-28-30-31-34-PICT-Throttle-Cable-Barrel-Clamp-VW-Volkswagen-/381517399463

Oops! I just noticed that is in the UK, but it shows the dimensions.

Google Solex Barrel Clamp and there are a some options.

I'm not sure why we didn't think of a nut and bolt when we were putting it together...

Thanks for the help Brian!Image

I haven't gotten out much yet, but so far the bike runs loads better and the throttle response is definitely snappy! I need to do a couple things maintenance wise before I can take it on a longer haul to see how it does.

If you lengthen the bar at the cable attachment point on the carb, throttle will be more gradual. Check your idle to wide open throttle at the grip. It should be the same as with stock carbs.
