Solex intake for R1600

Post by Chris Luers »

Yes, that's not a misprint. This is a intake mainfold to mount Solex carbs on a R1600 motor.. It has been ported. It came off an old autocross motor that had the head ported also. It includes the linkage.

$250 plus shipping.

If your interested I should have pictures in the next couple of days.

What does a Solex do horsepower-wise to a 1600? Pretty simialr to a 2L? 96 HP to, say, 107?

Depends on your engine combination but 20 - 25 hp seems resonable.
