Further mods

As I said in my first post, the issues with my carb didn't go down well with a perfectionist as myself. I'm a Virgo after all! After hunting on various Thai forums (using the dreaded Google Translate), I finally found the holy grail. A facebook acquaintance had an almost new Keihin CR38 Special, the dark version, for sale at a reasonable price. My wife didn't agree with me and gave me grief for 3 days, though. :-)
The Keihin CR38, along with the FCR  are very popular carbs for the SR in Thailand...for a good reason. The CR has made a world of difference and I'm not afraid anymore about her dying on me on every traffic light.

The CR is a little gem, but the manifold will have to go sooner or later.
