Step 2 - Trial and Error        

Well mostly error. The installation is proceeding slowly after several mistakes.

Mistake #1 - the fuel hoes's are small and kink fairly easily. This can be remedied fairly easily by using relatively long lengths of tube and ensuring that the bend radius is large. due to the longer length I decided to use the check valves to ensure consistent fuel delivery. Yes I made one tube much too short.

Mistake #2 - the check valves are relatively fragile (with side pressure) and the fuel tube once installed is not removable. If you attempt to pull the tube from the valve you will break the valve. Grumble ... placed an order for a replacement.

Mistake #3 - the kit includes enough fuel tube protection sleeving to complete the job ... unless you cut the pieces too short. Another order for a replacement sleeving.

So I'm waiting on parts to arrive but everything is pretty much ready to install.

The carbs and airbox need to be installed as an assembly. I'll need to keep these clean, taking them out is a bit more complicated than before.

I've also started looking at the control mounting locations. My favorite so far is attached to the GPS arm screw. it's the closest point to the head stock which will minimize movement of the hose.
