wayo go mate 38mm flatslides on mine no probs pulls like a train just clamp them to old manifold with a coulpe of hose clips and a rubber manifold adapter. Think the manifold was tappered interally to make a smooth transition.
setting up the jets is a bit of a process of pulling out plugs and seeing what colour they are and going though the ranges. good excess to go flat out down some country road.
I think on those darmahs del 40mm are too big and the 32 they come with can be improved on.
I wouldn't go back, and noticed a big improvment straight of to be fair dont think what it came were in the best condition. Check out some flatslides.
