You mean sort of like the Showa front ends (1974) and Keihn (1976) carbs on mid 70s Superglides? Guess what part of Japan those were made in 30 years ago and more. When I wrote the factory about those items along about 1976 I got a nice letter back about how those were better parts, lasted longer, and gave better performance--thus were a great improvement--all for less cost.
We should also ask Plumber to find out if Tedd's real name is Teddasaki or Tedd Wong Kong. Maybe it's Tedd Chavez.
