I would take the PE, those DR's would get terribly hot over tight, technical stuff.

agree on PE , altitude saps power on them and jetting at the altitude on old worn carbs are a problem. looking for a newer 34mm Mikuni, will post pics of 2 bike options. will be ready for testing this weekend :thumleft:
