see bottom of page. Independent floats in a special bowl vs the 2 fixed floats as stock. Indies were Bing's 'solution' to dripping, off-mixture in lean angles, better gas mileage, healthy babies, no more dandruff, etc etc. The wisemen have always been lukewarm on their effectiveness. The kit already came on the G/S when i bought it-- most likely i'd not do such a mod on my own nickel. They do seem to work well though-- not as fussy as the stock float setup i had on the RS a lifetime ago...
