Default Carb for 750cc motor?

Im a welder/fabricator building myself a custom bike around a 2003 vt750. My motor came in yesterday and I realized I have no carb. I was wondering if anyone knew of a better performing carb for a 750cc motor. Retrofitting for the most part is not an issue.

Welcome to the group!

I can't suggest a better carb. The stock one was very capable!

I'd be interesting in seeing any pictures you have of your work so far. I love projects like this!

Is it a DC Chain or C2 shaft?
DC's have offset Intakes and 2 carbs
C2 have one carb with a y intake as they are lined up.

Not sure what you can do on a C2. But people have made single carb intakes and put 40mm HD carbs on them.

ask and ye shall receive but not for a little while, I'd like to get the motor up and running before I start fabricating the frame so I can make sure I have plenty of clearance and it's a chain drive motor. Additionally does anybody happen to know the year range of CDI's(ignition modules) that are compatible with this motor?
