Installing Mikuni carbs

I took the leap and ordered up the Mikuni carb kit from Rocky Point Cycle. The old Bings were in need of a rebuild, which I am planning to do, but I thought I'd try out the RPC kit for a comparison. The difference in the colour of the floats in the Bings was interesting.

The Mikuni carbs are very slick, I like how the RCP kit uses two different models so you can set them up with the idle screws on the outside. RCP recommends soaking the rubber connectors in hot water to make the installation easier. After a soak they went on without any drama.

I think I may just JB weld them to the rubber connectors instead of using the clamps...
