It's the ATV. Dual sports were at their peak in popularity during the 70's and early 80's, right before the ATV became popular.

That might be part of it, I also think these engines are cast more in favor of being lightweight rather than being strong.

You can't buy just the stem. Honda never even sold them separate from the housing.

If you decide to buy the whole assembly, these are the best I found since new ones from Honda are NLA.

This is why I don't understand the need for a giant fuel tank on these bikes. I welcome gas stops every hundred miles or so just for the get-off-and-stretch-your-legs factor.
