    Not sure if anyone makes a kit with everything in it ready to go, but google it and you will get lots of hits from folks that have done it with what it took to do it. Sounds easy enough.

    Check out HarleyTechTalk.org and ask that on the Twin Cam board. Lots of folks over there with experience with going from MM efi to carb.

    Have to ask b/c I went from carb bike to EFI...why? EFI is so much smoother & easier to manage.

    The most common REASON for going from EFI to Carb is because there are more aftermarket performance "goodies" to turn your Harley into a "fire breather" without a lot of EPA noise & emissions restrictions as with EFI as well as "off road" or "not for street use" nature of such mods...:s!

    So it begs the question of the original poster...what are you looking for with the conversion you are seeking...more easy maintenance, modest or major mods in the future and who is doing the work...all drivers as too how much time and money you have or want to spend. :small3d036:

    Gotchya, that makes sense. Seen some pretty "souped-up" older scoots cruising around and most are loaded for bear...;)
