-850cfm carb is too large for a street driven machine, you'd probably do better with a 700 to 750 cfm carb.

-HOPE who ever built your engine used after the market rod bolts!!! Stock rod bolts are abit "stretchy" with a H.P. motor!
well I currently have a 650 carb on it in an effort to save some fuel but I bought a Barry grant speed demon 850 for when I'm don't and have a nice set of aluminum heads and a nos setup on it
