    I am currently using this setup on my restore project and am glad I puchased this kit. With my limited carb setup skills it has definitely helped me to keep carbs synced.

    Another satisfied customer with happy, synched Amal Premiers!
    Couple of suggestions for Don:
    Add a step in instructions after #13 to synch the slides using new cable adjusters on carb tops. Mine were way off on initial install with both adjusters bottomed. Slight difference in cable length I assume.
    Supply a bit more silicone tubing. I mangled one trying to get it to screw into cable opening.
    Suggest using clamping foreceps (hemostat) to hold back spring when installing slides/needle into carb body. It's a very useful tool for any Amal work with or without the kit.
    Overall excellent piece of work.

    @Tornado Owen used to be a regular on here, but is still very active in the Commando Facebook group.

    His combined bowl screw/jet holders are a superb modification which I can highly recommend

    Reanimating this thread from the dead:

    Would like to hear any feedback from owners with the Madass one throttle cable mod installed.
    Don are there any more of these kits available?

    I highly recommend Don’s product. P.M. him for current price, but I think mine was 99 dollars plus shipping.

    Cheers,

    cliffa.

    Just wanted a ballpark amount as a future reference. I haven't even got a second carb on the bike right now....but someday, I hope to graduate to that level of performance ;-)
