Here are examples of installations and some of the rebuilds I have completed of Mikuni/Solex sidedraught carburettors and the odd Weber. Each one has been provided by owners and myself. All pictures courtesy of the owners as noted.
This is the place you may find answers, through pictures, to the typical installation issues when moving from OEM set ups or modifying original set ups.
This is where it all started for me. They were meticulously detailed to the point they help win over the judges at the first couple of shows I entered into back in the late 80's early 90's. All of the external casting marks are filed off, parts chromed and then the rest painted in two pack using two of the three greens off my TA-22. A picture of how they look today. Below this is how the Dizzy and the Manifold align for this 2T set up.

The dizzy and oil pump shaft is rotated to clear the manifold, the rotor button is turned 180° and the plug leads re-arranged to get the correct firing order. Another option for the owner would be to return the rotor button to point to the original spot on the cap for TDC #1, then the leads may fit for length better.
This is a very tidy installation and uses a throttle cable kit I supplied, with owner modified throttle shaft arms from a 2T-G.
Only needs the cable connected up to the central arm, pulling up from under the bar. Uses the OEM Mikuni throttle arms and throttle stop brackets on the PHHs.
Set up for a Left Hand Drive vehicle shown at full throttle position. A kit I make up to add to the Mikuni Manifold.
This is how the cable kit I make up, hooks to the carbs on a 2T-G
