Doing the installation tonight and noticed a few things. The oval bore is SMALLER than the stock round bore! It obviously doesn't match the round power up intake manifold. Has anyone bothered to smooth out the transition? Is the remote idle adjuster just supposed to dangle? There's no bracket or note to do anything with it,.. I guess I'll just zip tie it somewhere?

Too bad about not using the stock throttle and cables. No offense to the fine people at motion pro, but I sure don't see this as an upgrade over the Honda throttle, and don't like having to order special cables or carry spares on a long ride?

Hope it works like everyone says it does?

Also noticed that this would be an easy carb to add a "Power Now" style divider plate since there's no choke plate. Anyone done this?
