Best thing i've heard is to scrap the mikuni carb that's on it and do a weber conversion. I just ordered one for my 87 a couple days ago and should be in next week. check out www.webercarbsdirect.com The complete kit for the swap is only $259.99 with free shipping and includes everything you need to get it done (gaskets, bolts, adapter plate, air filter).
