    test riding now it is perfection i must say i dont have a speedo hooked up yet..
    but from the seat of my pants i am sure it will do the ton
    for anybody that is looking for a streetable pair of carbs for a 350 twin i can verify now that the cb750ko cable pull carbs are a perfect solution
    you will notice i am having an issue completing the shift into 3rd
    something about it ,maybe its got a slightly longer throw
    i feel if i just get more deliberit with every shift it will be fine
    all of the upshifts are clutchless of course
    i will inspect my linkage and make sure that it is not contacting the sidecase cut out ..its very close and if the shift to third rtequires slightly more travel it could be solved with opening uo the window
    shift points in this video were all under 9500
    i have had it to 10 five and it really kicks in up there
