I know that some folks have had success with TDR's, but I also know a lot of folks who have had bad experiences with them. I'm assuming you're working with TDR's?

Yes I got TDR's, I called and spoke with Tony himself today( nice helpful guy), and he gave me some info, I have not yet got my bike running just yet, (still waitning for the throttle cables), I went to the glass shop and got me a pane and sanded the reed cges flat enought to have them pretty tight, we will see when I get it running, BTW I am not using stock carbs, I went all out and got some TM flat slides so they may work better
