Yes those would work, I feel they are quite overpriced though. They are from a '78 or '79 XS11.

Any carbs from any year/model XS11 or XJ11 will work fine. The XJ has a different choke setup but that is pretty easy to overcome.

The jetting for the carb though follows the carb year/style (they changed through the years) and does not matter what year/model bike it is on.
