What do dual carbs do?
Summary: dual carb motors have much shorter manifolds than single carb motors, and therefore they flow much easier. That allows you to run smaller carbs that “signal” better and have more power on the bottom end of the RPM range, and they still can have faster-flowing air on the top end, allowing for better topend.
