Merlyn, I've been contemplating pods on my Legend for a while but was hesitant because my bike has miks on it. But after reading your post I think I'm gonna be looking up a set UNI pods. I believe the elevation in Fargo is similar to Vegas so it should be pretty straight forward. Can't help but wonder if some of the people who encounter problems with pods have other underlying problems they are unaware of?

Unis should look interesting in there :: grin :: I'll look forward to pics!

I think underlying problems are part of the reasons for the bad rap pods get. I think improper mounting is a bigger reason, though.

If you seat the pods all the way back on the carb, the step in the rubbers seal off the air jets and it will run like crap. I've seen it happen more than once, and I think it's a very common problem with pod installs.

You have a point. I'll probably be calling the guys down at done city cycles in Florida for fitment info as they have helped me with some bikes in the past.

Dime City Cycles* I really hate the auto-fill function on my phone.

Merlyn,
I was just checking out uni dual layer pods online. I just noticed the dual layer pods I wanted to run have a 4 inch O.D. Which won't Work. back to the drawing board.:

Hello Randommech. I thought by 98 all T3 classics went to Klein carbs are you sure yours are Miks carbs.

Not sure what Greaser is talking about but mine runs great with pods. I enjoy the added power, and it looks great. (thanks TommyT!)

My bike is used and at some point it had the carbs swapped out for miks. One of the PO's must have seen what the khenins were going for on fleabay and swapped them out to make a quick buck. No matter, she runs great anyway.

There is another thread on Emglo pods on Keihin carbs touting 40 pilots, 140 mains and no change to the needle. From this thread I'm getting the impression that 140 is way too big for the mains. Any thoughts?
