2M, I've already put them back on the bike, but I cud try it in the 75 carbs. Almost certain that is where it hits. I feel like the Grandfather in "Moonstruck", "I'm so confused!" 5Twins, since the long ones available, they could prolly be shortened on a lathe, eh? I'm not home now, but they just need to be sticking up, an 1/8" or so, in order to Bernoulli the gas up into the airflow. Those cuts look pretty easy.
