Installation 2nd Attempt        

After rethinking this the Bell Mouth is really the location that the Fuel Feeds can be installed.

The air-box boot spring clamps need to be replaced with a 57mm flat band clamp that is able to be drilled. The clamp will ensure a seal on the boot and provide additional stability for the fuel feed body. Threaded hose clamps won't really be as effective so I made a quick trip to my neighborhood motorcycle shop and sent a 30 minutes digging through the parts bin until I came up with something that would work.

After installing the spare boots and the flat band clamps, drilling and tapping was fairly easy and the fuel feed bodies screwed in nicely. [img] https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1354062901287670&set=a.1351712094856084.1073741834.100000519207115&type=3&theater [/img]

as can be seen the feed tube is a bit long 50mm total. I ended shortening them by 4mm with a disk sander. I'm happy with this installation.

Add 57mm flat band clamps to things you need before you start.

The big challenge now is how to install the carbs with the boots as a unit on the bike. The bike is due for a service which is why i'm doing this install now since i'll be doing a UNI-Trak service and will have the back end off. I'm guessing this is the only way to get everything in as a unit.

I'm still waiting on the jets and several other minor parts to come in, so it'll be a few days before i can make progress. I also want to install the fuel check valves since the fuel tubes will be different lengths ... should be just a minor delay.
