Mikuni RS36 flatslides fit. Even if you find a set spaced for an engine with centre camchain, they can be remounted with little fuss to match the RX spacing. I should know, I've done it.

Sorry for the late reply pete

He did have gsxr 11 carbs on it spaced to suit but went back to stock as it runs better low down like that,  he's got it tuned & geared for low down grunt, the 11 carbs made it top end happy which isn't what he wanted with no fairing

Don't forget to set the balancer shaft when its all back up & running mate, plenty of folk don't bother then (usually) number 2 piston makes a bid for freedom  :o

Don't ask how I know  :-X

Hi soren,
Down on the right side of the engine under the pickup cover there is a little shaft with a slot in the end sticking out, it has a clamp around it & a locking bolt it looks very much like a gearchange lever end where it goes on the spline

With the engine warm & ticking over put a screwdriver in the slot then undo the locking bolt (8mm head from memory) turn the screwdriver a little & you will hear a scraping whining sound turn the screwdriver until it stops then back it off a little until just before it starts again, lock it off & its done

That is probably not the best explanation as its a bit of a knack & you really do it by ear but it is in all the manuals & well worth looking up, the engine will run smoother & idle better if its right

I have done loads now for people who didn't even know it existed, once you have done it once its easy mate
