If the carbs are not negatively effected by standing them straight up then the original air box (as YOU point out) should not need much if any modifications.  With the carbs from the YZF600r that I am using I chose the pair that has the bell crank and left them connected together as they were in their original application.  This caused me to make up new manifolds to fit the carbs.  It is MUCH easier to use original manifolds than it is to make new ones, but I didn't have to fabricate linkages and such between the carbs.  Since I have a spare air box I will modify one to accommodate the "new" carbs.
