I see. You would probably have to make an adapter plate and turn the carb 90 degrees.

The best "Custom" GL1200 I ever saw was done by Phillip Sanford in TN.

I saw it in 1993.in Knoxville, TN.........!!

Yep, it had "one" carb feeding four cylinders.....!!!

one of the holes in the vw carb is to close to the bowl to do that

I changed my brake lines to braided lines and had problems like yours,I took the line off at the masr cylinder and held my finger over the hole and pumped the handle and then it built pressure and the it pumped up at the caliper
