a little change to design

I have been running the VW 34-3 carb over a year on my PVC set-up, it is reliable, powerful, cheap, and simple. It is on the Black 81 1100, and I also pull a trailer. The Yellow 82 in picture has factory carbs, my better half rides it on our trips. This gives a comparison from single to factory. We are heading to Talimena Trail for a 5 day camping trip week of Oct 12.(Ark, La, Okla, & Texas)


p.s. pictures are of PVC manifold I am building for the 82 for when the factory rack gives up the Ghost. It is same design I have used for over a year, except the 45s are twisted just a little less than 1/4 inch, this gives the correct angle to fit into the factory manifold Ells, and the Flex PVC is no longer needed....Easier and Cheaper........ I also use 1 x 1 1/4 PVC slip by slip bushings to fit on end of 1" runners to slip into existing rubber manifold ells. They fit tighter than the 1" couplings and are stronger.
