Euro GS's used the small valve heads with a manifold that adapts the 40mm carbs.
Pt#11121257396 might be the part number. This was from a Eurotech receipt from back in 1996, only$11.50 each! A&S shows $41.00 now. Description only says Intake Manifold, but I'm pretty sure these are it, check to be sure.
Never underestimate the laxative properties of motorcycling.

I had an 82 r100 that I put Mikuni flat slides on, and after I got them jetted right (they had been on another r100 and only needed a little tweaking) the bike ran fine. I remember them to be much more responsive than the Bings,
but not much difference on the top end, and the gas mileage went from about 45 mpg to under 30 mpg. The thing would really jump when I snapped the throttle open though.
The slides eventually wore, and made them run lean, and I took them off.
The older I get, the faster I was.

It's all about attitude & timing.

I'm not sure where we're going, but this road seems to be paved with good intentions.

Bumping an old thread...

I picked up a GSPD that has Mikunis on it and it runs great but there's not much clearance between the bottom of the bowl and the brake lever. When wearing my riding boots (Icon Patrol) have to be cognizant of the angle needed to get my foot above the brake lever.
