I actually found it on the old board. There was a link to MotoHouston where there was a short, pointless thread on it.

That thing is going to be mean. Good luck with the pine-sol treatment. Take some good pics!

Well, the sprocket issue is resolved, cut and welded the other one in place, even took care of the offset I was worried about, next obstacle is the intakes, I found a solution, just a lengthy one, ended up buying a piece of stock aluminum, 3/4 x 5 x 12 inches, going to cut 2ea 3/4 x 3 x 5 for each side, that will cover both intakes per side , flush mount the screws to the head, offset the other direction a set of xs intakes, and of course, drill and dremmel to fit, so the aluminum will be a 3/4" spacer to mate up the xs intakes to the heads. Should be interesting, but I've become a pretty good fabricator over the years. I'll take more pics as well, will be slow going for awhile, dealing with the bad weather.

:? Are you planning on using the XJ carbs or do you have something else? The XJ carbs won't work with the throats in a horizontal position. The float bowls will be at the wrong angle.

Both, The carb will still be at an angle, just not as steep, but I have a set of backups just in case, but I'm betting, with the fuel pump, it will work, we'll have to wait and see.

Okay and good luck. These carbs are very sensitive to even such small things as air box changes.
