Whats funny is that I had read this thread (and a few others on the net after my friend offered to sell me the bike). I asked him if the bike in question had the famous "dual carbs". He said, "No, I'm pretty sure it's a single" . Well, long story short, as soon as I showed up to hand over the cash and get the title, I take a look, and whadaya know? Dual carbs!

It reminds me of a chevy small block with a big four barrel carb when the secondaries kick in, I love that sound!
