    Nobody knows anything about these? I'm surprised because not a lot of places have parts for our bikes. Usually, its members here who push the companies to make things. I might end up being the guinea pig on this one.

    I can't remember anyone using this specific kit but a few have tried 30-34mm VM mikuni carbs in the past. Most had tuning issues and said they are not very street friendly. These are really intended for 2-stroke bikes or 4-stroke race type bikes where your on and off full throttle a lot. Not cruising the streets. The CV type stock carbs are perfect for street use as they give smooth throttle response. What parts do your stock carbs need. Lots of 80-82 sohc parts around as the xs650 from 80-84 used the same ones.

    I just need to clean and rebuild. Haven't taken them apart yet, so I'm not sure what I'll need. I see so many rebuild kits look like junk though. If you know a good source, please let me know.
