looked into single carb swaps, but the shock is sort of in the way!
Yea, I've read the carbs can be quite a pain when they do need servicing. Luckily all I've had to do to mine is take it apart for a quick cleaning and that's it. The previous owner had it jetted rich and it seems to work great with the pipe.
