Things are looking good...I like the colour and the engine ought to work pretty well with the new filter, especially where both carbs are still breathing through a common inlet.
Thanks. I definitely wanted to keep both carbs breathing together. The rubber manifold on this bike made it easy.

Well it's done for now. All back together and running. Happy with the result. Still a few tweaks here and there to do. Had a good ride on it today.

Keep an eye on the float heights, for some reason they go out of adjustment, lean the mixture and hole the left piston.

Thanks Goldy. I think I will get a trusted mechanic with 2 stroke experience to do a tune for me and ensure the fueling is correct.

Seems to be running lean. I have no baffles in the exhaust as they were cactus. New baffles coming tomorrow and size bigger main jets. Anyone have any experience jetting Suzuki twins?

Experience: tons. Advice: not much....except to say, be patient! You are going in the right direction, about the only other option is to find an original intake and filter.

Haha, I have the original air box, the foam filters are stuffed though and I can't find any new ones. Don't seem to be available anywhere.
