Mikuni S&S CV or??? best carb for the job?

I just picked up a 883 without intake mainfold
I will like to run this engine in my project but as soon as the project is done I want to kit it up to 1200
My question is will I have to buy another Cab or is there one out there versatile enough to go from 883 to 1200. I don't need top performance but i want a bike that will not be drastically under or over carburated.
Opinions?

will an intake manifold that fits the 883 fit the 1200? If it were me and I could do it I would try and get the 1200 kit on there from the outset and be done with it

Well that is an excellent question. I know the main diff is that the 883 runs a piston that is half inch smaller diameter (3 inch I believe to the 3.5 on the 1200 set up) so the jugs are different but I still thought that the manifolds both swap out.

Your right about going for a set up that is more in balance for a 1200 and just jetting it down to try to get a good range for the smaller displacement. The only worry i have about that is that my finances are not what you would call "Rock Solid" today things are gong good and new jugs/heads seem doable in 6 or 7 months but sometimes we have dry spells and in that case I might be ridding it in the 883 config for longer then I expect.

As usual everyone wants to over carb. An e is waaay to big for that motor. Find yourself a nice old 40mm Mikuni and you can thank me later.

I would find a used CV carb they were put on both the 883 and the 1200 from the factory and work decent on both. I think an E and a 42 Mikuni is too big for an 883.

Oh and the intake would be the same on either 883 or 1200

Yea the more I think about it that is the direction I am going. I would love to get either a Mikuni or an S&S (if I see a great deal on ebay I will sang one) but they both seem to be a bit more expensive then the CV and if anybody knows what is a good size to put on a Harley it is probably Harley.

I just took the carb off a 2000 Buell I just bought as a donor bike which I'm tearing down right now. I got no use for it so if you can use it its yours. Let me know. My other half is flying out to New York on Thursday - she can take it with her and send it out to you from there.

Yes if that will fit I want it. I want to comp you whats fair tho. Will that fit on a 2007 that was formerly Fuel Injected? I am just starting to learn the Sportster engines but having a blast at it.

For the record.. your not gonna be happy with the cv carb... I have a 883, and swapped out the cv twice, and jetted it all the way up, and it still starves.. I ride my sporty like hell, so its always revn high, a super e is the way to go... keep in mind, your bumping up to a 1200, I'm sure you gotta have pipes, and of course a higher air flow intake... with more velocity, your gonna want a carb that'll perform..

The only upgrade on the 883 will be pipes and they are the 2 into 1 style so not super high flow. When the engine gets rebuilt with the 1200 jugs and pistons I will have a few options with the heads and cams and at that time I am thinking I may want to more up to a bigger bore throat but that really depends on finances more then anything and these days it is all about getting this bike up and running by any means necessary.
