I seriously have to cruise in 4th if I'm at 80kph, because switching to 5th puts me near 1800 RPM! Possibly great for fuel economy...but trying to get a decent AFR out of a set of DCOEs that low in the RPM range under load is pretty tough, lol.

I did finally suck it up and order a set of DCOE 152G 5-holes though, which should help with the huge flat/lean spot during progression. Even though I've only driven it a little bit right now, it is hilarious to drive due to the intake noise. Not super fast, but very giggle-inducing . The 45mm carbs should help a ton with driveability, although it's staying on 36mm chokes.
