Yeah - The problem is the warpage from heat. I would like to avoid it if I could. I am waiting on what the final carb solution is, then I think we should all have several beers next to the woodstove while we put the plan in motion.

well - no need to fab. I found after about 6 hours of research, someone had already done this on a kz440, the twin to my bike, but in cruiser-ish form. Mikuni makes a 60 on center spigot, that I can just widen the bolt center dimensions on when I move to vm34 carbs.

For now, I will just swap out my old keihin cv's for newer mikunis with better circuitry and keep my eye out for some vm's when they come open or some tm33's with a pump.
