Amal Premier Carbs Back In-Stock (Finally)
Just over a year ago we received some unfortunate news from our suppliers stating how Amal Premier carburetors would be unavailable for some time.
This included all Amal Premier 626, 928, 930 and 932 carburetors.
Some suggested a few weeks, many said months while others suggested up to a whole year!
Word had it that there was a hick-up during manufacturing which cause some delays. Inventively the “delay” turned out to be a full year...
So what caused the Amal Premier "delay"?
During this time I heard many theories of why the production was halted but I’m not in the business of speculating so I’ll leave that up to you..
As far as I’m concerned Amal has fixed the problem and I congratulate Amal for working diligently to give our community quality carbs we so desolately need.
Supply and demand
The demand for Amal premier carbs has never been stronger than it is today since Amal first introduced the Premier range a few years back.
Now granted during this delay time. We did receive some very, very small batches of a Amal Premier carburetors, but I personally believe that high demand - low supply fueled the demand even more.
For over a year just a handful of dealers had any type of Amal Premier carbs on there shelves. The demand was so great that folks where buying left hand carbs for there right hand applications...
At times my supplier would send me around four pairs of Amal 930 Premier carburetors and within the next few days they would already be gone. Our back-order list was pages long and we just finished fulfilling the wait list.
What’s "premier" about the Amal Premier carburetor?
For those late to the game Amal Premier carbs are literally the best stock carbs you can install on any vintage Triumph, BSA or Norton motorcycle.
By all means they are the same as the original Amal Concentric's with a modern and upgraded “twist”.
Amal Premier carbs come with everything like the original Amal Concentric carbs but with a removable pilot jet on the side of the body as well as a hard anodized slide preventing premature throttle slide / body wear.
There a few more upgrades on the Amal Premier carbs that we actually went over in a blog post a few years back. (We highly recommend reading that blog post - see below)
