I have a 1982 Suzuki GS 1100 that I am currently in the middle of a restoration, I am stretched on the bike doing new cans a set of 4 Mikuni RS38 flatslides carbs. However, I've had the carbs in my garage for quite some time and I never realized that one of my flat slides appears to have been cut to allow more air to flow through. I'm unsure whether or not I should install these on my bike, what exactly this is going to do, I am not super familiar with carburetor setups. Can somebody please give me an inkling of what I'm about to be dealing with. And do I need to replace the slide all together?

It has not men "cut". The slide has been damaged. Quite common for this to happen with the early "plastic" slides. You need to replase the broken one and preferably all 4.

Do I order specifically exhaust side slides? How does that work?
