A big thank you!

I pulled my carbs off in December and didn't get around to putting the kits in until last weekend. I put them back on the bike yesterday and fired it up just now. It runs like a champ! I just wanted to thank all of you for your help and wisdom. If I can do it anyone can.

After the carb job I'm getting 38 mpg. Before I was getting 33 at best. Didn't know it would make that much of a difference.
