After checking out the MOTORCYCLE SPECIFICATIONS website it shows that the XVS 650 (V Star) has 28mm carbs but the Virago 535 has 34mm carbs.  Both motors are based on the same design and use down draft type carbs.

I based my carb selection on availability, price and size.

thanks guys, that is helpful, I know a lot of work has gone
into these conversions. 
I gave up tinkering on the vision last year and rode the honda all season
but I missed riding her for sure.
