What happens if your carburetor is too big?
If the barrels are too big, the loss of air velocity means the cylinder will not fill to its full capacity. An engine with a carb that is too big will put out less Torque and Horsepower. It will be difficult to drive due to poor low-end torque. If you drag race your car, an oversized carb will produce slow 60 ft.
Will a bigger carb make more power?

Installing a bigger carb is simply going to improve the power potential of your bike. You still have other things to worry about like improving air intake, exhaust flows and jets.
