Okay, I'm still not moving forward with much yet, haven't got the exhaust wrench or gaskets to adjust valves, etc. but...
I know I said I was going to stick with the black label Bings unless something fell into my lap. Well some VM32's are available cheap and I'm wondering what it would take to make them work. They're off a Jap bike, but I'm assuming I can get what I need from Rocky Point. What would I need to make an old set of Mikuni VM32's work, and can I get the old intake tubes to mate up? If it's cheaper to buy the jets, cables, and manifolds along with the cheap Mikunis, that's what I'm doing. Will any VM32 fit?
Some things shouldn't be left like you found them.
