- Or one of the earlier Africa Twin models, f.e. the XRV650?
- Other alternatives?
Perhaps wrong suggestion but...did you look at carbs on "donor" of XLV engine? VT750 cruiser? I have no idea if they will be same or suitable, I just think those must be easily available at breakers in Germany and I seen quite a bit of those on USA ebay.
