I think you are better off buying these new. The carb slides in particular wear and cause poor running. You want new anodized slides. New springs would be good.
Does it help to fit anodized slides in worn carb bodies? Or do rebuild kits come with o/size slides, allowing for carb bodies to be machined to o/size as well? I must confess not having spent much consideration on the s/h carbs to be fitted to my bike.+1 on the above. Slides, needles and needle jets wear and cause running issues. No point in starting out on day one chasing carb gremlins !
Burlen do rebuild kits that contain the gaskets and o rings you’ll need too.
New slides are just new slides, not oversized, so you’re only repairing half of the wear. So it’s certainly no way of rehabilitating properly worn carbs (and if I did buy new slides, I’d buy heavy chromed brass ones personally).Does it help to fit anodized slides in worn carb bodies?

I’ll measure my cable. Mine appears to be longer than yours. If you get a chance and whenever it’s convenient, could you take a picture from behind the bracket so I can see the cable?Doesn't look quite right where the cable housing goes into the lug on the swingarm. Should be much more in line with the 06.0796 threaded brake yoke. Please excuse the lack of polish in the following photo. A finely calibrated piece of cord says the cable housing is 13" long between mounting lugs. More photos and measurements on request.
-edit- Housing is closer to 12-1/2". The nipples on the ends of the ferrules that go into the lugs on the swingarm and pedal plate are 1/4" dia by 1/4" in length.
If there is any adjustment in the Craven mounts, and the lower hole in the bracket can be moved to the top forward hole, you could use two of smaller footrest support brackets, which would really tidy things up nicely. It is what I did with my pannier mounts since I have a 2-1 as well.About like this. Reminder that there is a 2-1 exhaust on the other side and the pillion pegs have since been deleted. The extra brackets are just there for the Craven mounts.
Yup, folk do the same with Concentrics. I’m just not sure why when you can buy brand new Premiers with their other benefits already included !When I used to send my old monoblocs to Lunds, they bores the carb bodies and installed very thin sleeves on the slides. both surfaces new and compatible.
Because maintaining originality is a prime consideration for many people, EVER IF NOBODY WILL EVER NOTICE!Yup, folk do the same with Concentrics. I’m just not sure why when you can buy brand new Premiers with their other benefits already included !
