    Has anyone tried these UFO (Ultimate Flow Optimizer) things in the carbs before? I am interested in them and was wondering if they work? I see that there is some tuning required, but just looks like some simple adjustments.
    Here is the web page they are on:
    http://www.thunderproducts.com/u_f_o.htm

    From what I have read they work but I am looking for a second opion!

    I run them in my 96' Ultra 800 big bore it took some time to set them up once tuned they work great.I would recomend using EGT's to set them up.

    If you have about a month to jerk with installing and setting the sled up, then maybe. Without a EGT gauge you are playing russian-roulet with these things. Forget it and buy a set of used flat slide carbs.

    Ultra rider, I'm at 1300'. Your pipes should work although not as well as the others, as the factory triple pipes were 800 pipes to start with,and the psi's are 800 big bore pipes. Your outlets are smaller on the slp's. I personally have never tried it running 680 pipes on an 800 so I can't give you a valid answer. All the parts you need can be found in the aftermarket or on the internet. Sleeves should be about $100 to 125 a pop, pistons around $75 a piece gaskets 80 to 100 Heads recut around 40 a pop or $300 for a new set If you use the specs I gave you earlier you will have a very trailable sled with loads of power and it runs on 92 oct pump gas. You can buy a kit from some of the big performance shops but its going to run you around 2000.oo to 2500.00 do it your self for around half.If you don't have a good machine shop in your area you can send your cyls to L.A.Sleeve and the will install them for you. not sure what they charge

    I have them on my 91 Formula. I had no problem installing them (without an egt) It took me about a day to do in total. That included testing 3 different jets... Once they are in and set up you'll feel the difference - crisper throttle responce.In the 2 years I've realized better fuel economy, and the only issue I've had is that the one retaining screw came out and the ufo dropped down (just needed some threat loc)
