The only blab's I will even be a part of is just when it is me they are talking about. Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"
If you can find a surplus Enderle tunnel ram or blower linkage setup, rob the standoffs, heim joints and levers. Should be reasonably doable.
The parts are available separately from GoodVibes Racing.
Ya, here you go. Use the parts given here. Extend the linkage so you have a rod that moves side to side(between your cold pipes) with your current linkage. Use the standoffs, heim joints and levers to convert the direction of movement of the rod mentioned.

that was speedways recommendation as well, I must just be stupid because I don't get it at all.
Don't feel stupid! When I wanted to mount my 750's inline and NOT sideways, i was chided and teased that it was not possible.
SOOO I ordered carb spacers AND a sideways throttle linkage from Summit ($165). A little time with those parts, a few Corona's, and the carbs on the kitchen table and I made it work from that, along with a few pieces of aluminum strap, a sawzall, grinder and drill. Voila! Inline, facing each other, 750's AND opens the butterflys on the scoop as well. Works great, and is the most interesting throttle linkage I've seen yet (Until I get the blown, Crower injected and Hilborn pumped deal all together).
Let's see if I can do this.
Try picking up or making a couple of the standoffs. That's the black pieces that have the Heim joints attached. These go on the carb mounting studs on the secondary side of the carb.
Get a piece of serrated shaft and pass it through the Heim joints. With this approach the rod should be running below your secondary float bowl.
Pick up a couple of these to lock and locate the shaft so it doesnt slide back and fourth in the Heim joints.
Pick up a couple of these....
Put them on the end of the shaft with one in line with the carb linkage and one in line with the lever on the scoop.
Pick up a couple of rods with some Heim Joints (Right and Left hand threads) and run on rod from your linkage on the carb to the first lever youve mounted on the rod.
Run the other rod from the scoop lever down the the remaining lever you mounted on the rod.
So, what I guess I'm trying to say, is when you open the throttle the rod will push and rotate the shaft which will in turn rotate the lever that is attached to the scoop down thereby opening up the scoop.

???? Not sure if I can agree with you but then again, to each their own. It might be because I'm sorta partial to them...
Here's a couple in service...
