carbs-expensive vs cheap

carb guys school me on the benefits of the different carbs...
later on I am going to put a big bore kit on my crf100 and do some brake and suspension mods...
when I do the big bore kit (115cc) I will need to change carbs. There is a huge difference in the prices of carbs...
what are the advantage of the flat side carbs? I really am not looking at any super cheap carbs, all are in the $156 to $300 range. What real difference in performance is there and if you know, why?

the two least expensive that are not ebay junk are the:

26mm round side Keihin and the Mikuni VM26, which of those would like be the best to use. If you know of one that would give better performance or better reliability tell me about them.

Those are both well known brands of carbs. Jets should be plentiful for tuning. I have never really heard of one brand being better than the other. I would put trust easily in either of those brands.

well all you have to do is make my fingers younger so that they do what I think they do and not leave a letter out... and then my eyes miss those small details when i read what I typed before i hit the post button... plus at my age you really get to the point that you just do not give a ...if the son of a works you don't care how it is spelled. There are some benefits to getting old, even if no one esle senses them.
