Note on carbs:
I ran my XJ (stock carbs and intake but with Jardine "spaghetti" 4 into 2 pipes and Jardine mufflers) and had very few problems with mountain riding. Sometimes I had to roll the throttle open to get the engine started but no big deal. Yes, you won't get optimum performance but for a weekend rally with group riding stock settings should do OK even at mountain pass elevations.

Am good with July 13 -16 dates or even the following weekend or two.

Keep in mind that layered clothing is the best way to go even in July; at elevations the temps can change 20 - 40 degrees pretty quickly as you leave the campground and climb to over 10K elevation and run in and out of sunshine.
