Thank you Lozza , all sorted . Pingel is the the best option , due to size and flow rate . The original H2 vacuum taps are the best , but I put on bigger carbs and there is not enough room now between the outlet and the left carb.I was just spooked at the $420 option I found first on E bay  . Now that I got the spelling right ,I found the right thing for half the price , thanks to Pokey .

Yes I was think along the same lines , making something . Then I thought as a last resort ,I will ask my usual triple part supplier Midatlantic  if he knew of any Pingels . The reply today  was " How many do you want , I have plenty in stock, $145 landed to you " That solves that problem . Thank you for your help .

Thanks for that Pokey . The thread on the tank is different ( I think 24 x 1). I found only  one on Ebay , but nearly had a stroke when looking at the final price  LOL . https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Kawasaki-750-H2-Pingel-Triple-sortie-carburant-haut-debit-Robinet-c-w/253151162701?epid=633545507&hash=item3af0fc314d:g:8JcAAOxyUrZS8Pnp:rk:1:pf:0    If you can find a cheaper one ( same Item ) that would be great . The reason for this is that I put 34 mm carbs on it and there is not enough flow and room for the OEM tap .

I assume you actually mean XJR 1300 and not XJS ?   In order to help you, can you tell us what bike you are intending them to fit to . I do have the relevant info on the XJR 1300 ( not XJS )

They do ? Why?  because walter not all can afford your shocks

Are there any better options for that money? $700 incl GST  for threaded preload , damping adjustable , extreme hardy steel bore , fully rebuild able, tested and used by winning teams. Made to order in Australia .I dont know of any thing cheaper that could match that price with THAT  quality  https://store.suspensionshop.org/kawasaki/mx/1970-1979.html 

 Anyway back to the original question . I would like to see the outcome and end price of that project .It is always good to see what people are doing . 8)

I assume then , that you get your Harley donor base for free , then purchase new springs , shafts , needles, shims, eyelets etc to suit your chosen model , right ?

There are many reasons as to why people restore all sorts of motorbikes . Can be first bike ever owned or dreamed of owning one , custom building one ,or what I see very often this days is , people acquiring 30 year old bikes to qualify for the classic registration . 90 days in SA for $90
