The carb fairy came!

Spent a few nights this week doing maintenance on the Kawasaki to get it as reliable as possible on longer trips.. Trying to go on the Greasebag Jamboree and the Gypsy run and need to get some high mile runs on it...

My old carbs were leaking like crazy, and parts were impossible to find.  Let alone jets for it...

Picked up a set of Mikuni VM34s and some aluminum intake manifolds.  The manifolds are for an xs650 but I slotted the holds a few mm on the mill and they fit perfectly... All I need are some velocity stacks now...   With this, new wheel bearings, sprockets, chain, and some other junk it should be as reliable as it is smooth.
