dude, you are like a god to me.

awesome project...great photos...amazing talent

so many questions...

ZX9R carbs?!? wtf?? That's awesome - mated to a custom manifold, ported head, and stage II cam, that baby is gonna scream!! What's the cfm on that 4x carb - over 600?? Is it easy to sync?

...Back in the 80's, I had a '79 Spitfire. Replaced the 150 cfm Zenith-Stromberg "dashpot" carb with a 350 cfm Weber DCOE sidedraft. Not a bad product considering it was Italian engineering, but with so many jets it cost an arm+leg to tune. Supplier who sold it to me said "Guaranteed to work right out of the box!" Well...that turned out to be technically true - in some alternate universe where a 6000RPM idle qualifies as "working right out of the box".
