The intake manifolds are modified with vacuum spigots that make tuning and synchronization a breeze. If your application is for a 1974-1976 CB550 then you will need to replace your intake manifolds. If your application is for the 1977-1978’s then you can retain the original manifolds or send them in for a core discount, please inquire for details. The included K&N pod filters will provide maximum airflow while retaining a classic look.
The carburetor kit will also work with your OEM Honda cables and OEM Honda rubber carburetor holders. Since the rubber holders will dry out and crack over time it is always recommended to install this kit with a fresh set of new holders.
