    I have a 1992 sportster 883 which has a S&S shorty E on it right now. I am thinking of changing it back to a CV carb. I don't have any of the original parts. My question is, can I use the S&S manifold with one of those flange adapters that they sell on Ebay? Also, will the S&S backing plate and air filter work with a CV carb? Thanks.

    I believe you can use the CV with an S&S manifold, it worked for me when I built my EVO motor, maybe a sportie is different. I don't believe the backing plate for the S&S filter will work with a CV.
    Hopefully someone with a little more knowledge will respond as I am only speculating, my knowledge is on the Big Twin moreso....

    You can get a flange adapter to use the manifold, the backing plate will not work to my knowledge, you could get a SE back plate and AC kit cheap try Ebay
