Best at what?? If sport touring for long distances and easy maintenance, the stock 40mm Bings will do just fine, thank you. Use the stock Euro jets for that year and you are golden.
Others can do just fine, if your skill in setting up the right jets is up to the task. If tinkering through such trials and errors is something you like doing, do that.
But factory Bings is a quicker road to decades of good service with stock cables and procedures giving easy install setup.
