Story goes, I found a couple bad diaphragms in the CV carbs off my 82 GS 850. Those slides don't have replaceable boots and the diaphragms are prohibitively expensive (150+ per carb).

My brother bought me a 79 GS850 with VM carbs on it but the displacement is different. (26mm versus the stock 32mm) so the carb spacing is off for the factory intake manifolds (between carb and motor)...

Does any one know if I can get a different set of manifolds to get this 79 carbs to work or am I fighting a losing battle before it starts?
