A bit of intermediate tubing helps with torque low down and made them actually fit, since the carbs where larger size than the GS throttle bodies. The only pain is to remove the airbox which is a very tight fit. I dont cross rivers, so height is not a problem, but otherwise is not recommended.
Thanks for that Mousitsas, I guess I'll go back to the drawing board. Not much good to me if the setup is to low, N.Z. has lots of rivers with roads/tracks beside/accross them and I never know when I'll be on one.
BTW does anyone have an old spare airbox kicking around the back of the shed they'd like to donate to the cause ($$ offered of course)
