    Being outside doesn't bother seals much (I've left my daily rides out in the rain for years with no cover because fuck it) but the intake manifold seals get old so I'd replace those as part of...

    I don't get wanting a single intake when milling a pair for dual carbs/injectors would be easy meat unless bridging the gap with more fins is the goal.
