Looks like a good start, best advice is to research research research. And ask questions then don't be scared to try something new. There are several people that do pretty awesome things with just basic tools also

Good start and welcome in!


If you're keeping those rubber tubes then you'll need to fix the pressure problem it creates!

You'll see a pipe on the right hand side of the airbox, coming from the carbs.
This needs to be connected into your airbox on the engine side of the filter. This will pressurise your carb bowls to the same pressure as the airbox and it will mean that you don't start blowing fuel out the breather and get running issues.

So what i did was, removed the tube/bar that ran paralell to the carbs then drilled two holes in the airbox to allow me to run an individual hose into each intake, directly to the float bowls, should do the trick.

Yep that does the trick - it's just tidier doing it with a short length of the rubber hose; the whole you'd drill would be approx. the size of a rubber grommet used commonly for electrical enclosures in case you ever reverted to stock setup.
