Need a good motocross shop near Atlanta

I'm trying to put some Keihin PWK A/S 35 carbs from a Yamaha Banshee on to my '85 BMW GS. I've got the bike running with the carbs but I'm going to need a lot of parts to dial this thing in. As you can imagine, carbs from a 2010 2-stroke 4-wheeler aren't exactly jetted close to a 30 year old BMW motorcycle. I shoulda stuck with the Mikunis!

I've got a good range of jets, and needles are cheap, but the slides are $80 each and I need two The bike's running so rich that gas trickles out the muffler and these carbs came with the richest slide cutaway available.

I'm happy to buy new slides but I don't want to drop $160 just to try them out. These are fairly common motocross carbs. Does anybody know of a shop that works on motocross bikes or preferably Yamaha Banshees?

Here's where I'm at:



Thanks!
Brad
