Acme has new points in stock so i'm going to go that route for a temporary fix, then research a bit more into the Mikuni. It seems to be one option that has very few failures if you locate the pump in the right place and do the plumbing correctly.
my buddy steve also has a mikuni but hasn't mounted his yet either. That way we can carry a spare and share it between the two of us on rides. lol. :)
flux i'll keep you posted on outcome and what it looks like in the pump.
