Really good to know. I forgot to mention that I was able to fix my carb post. It broke off a little more than third of the way down, so I filed both broken ends down and drilled both ends. then I cut the head off a stainless screw and locktited it into the top piece and then screwed that into the bottom post with more locktite and because of the filing I was able to turn it down to the perfect height and use the original mounting holes for the floats. when i got done you had to look close to see that it was ever broke. Back in the bike and running great. Also I didn't remove the carb from the rack . I taped every thing up in plastic except for the post to be drilled. So I didn't have to resync the carbs. I realized to late that I should have taken a pic to post. Thanks to all for your input.
