Default OS V-Spec Carb

Are the V-Spec carbs any good? Do they hold a tune well? I have a couple Picco engines that are tough to hold a tune. I was wondering if swapping the carb for an OS would help the issue. Thanks for any info.

O.S. carbs are the best on the market hands down.

So I guess O.S. is the way to go for a carb? Is the carb diameter the same so it'll fit in my Picco carb bore?

An OS carb will not fit in a picco based engine.

Will any better carburetors drop into a Picco or am I stuck with what I've got now?

I've had good luck with the SH carbs in my Jammin(picco). Currently I'm using a Sportwerks (SH). One from a Mach, SH, XTM, Sportwerks, etc. should work.
