So I cleaned up the carbs, installed new bowl gaskets and got the carbs back on the bike finally.

Then I finished cleanup on the pipe and did a new V&H badge.   I broke the lower spring so I have a few on order.

Bummer on the leaks but hopefully easy to fix.

Argh.  I hates the leaks.  Bt so happy it fired and ran nice.

There just isn't any good spot for carbs.

Shouldn't be too big of a deal other than time, and it will need a good bath ..

I can't help eyeballing the bling for this bike.    A dude is selling a set of unobtanium factory magnesium TDM38 carbs and a YEC factory carbon fibre airbox, bell mouths, etc..   all for about $2500. (not bad for what you get)  which is only about $2k higher than my current budget and more than I paid for the whole bike.  But OH the sexy!!

Carbon fiber always finds a way to push the budget limits...

Make your own airbox.  That is a pretty simple shape.

I've considered it.  I'll need to get much better with fiberglass than I currently am to accomplish it.  That and I'm highly attracted to oem YEC bits...
