I don't have too much to update; After rebuilding the carbs for the 2nd time (the first time was just blasting carb cleaner around them) the bike starts and runs on both cylinders. It starts easily but has some hesitation reving off of idle. I have set the float levels and balanced them with a home built manometer (I got them very close, but there is just enough play in the linkage that at idle I can not for the life of me get them to be exactly even). It could be tci issues that the bikes are somewhat known to have, but first I am gonna throw in a new set of plugs and adjust the valves. Any imput on the situtation would be great.

Since my xj900r front end didn't come with front brake calipers I picked up these r6 calipers on ebay for dirt cheap. I can't wait to offer them up to see how much work it will take to them them on...
