You could just re-jet them or maybe just a good cleaning would do the trick!

There are no direct replacements due to the joined carbs. A few have talked about getting a special 2 into 1 manifolf made (like Harleys) the using a larger single carb, but the cost would be more than the bike is probably worth, unless you have access to a CNC machine.

the only option I can think of is going to fuel injection... It's not cheap, and as far as I know never been done to a VN750.

VMax CV to TBI Instructions gives you a good understanding of how the fuel injection system works, and how to set it up. Then use the fallow on reading for Megasquirt/Microsquirt Set up. Here is the required parts list.

I personally recommend keeping the stock carbs and rebuilding them... there isn't much to them, and they aren't that scary after you open the up for the first time. Roach has a video on rebuilding the carbs. and there are more than enough people here on the forums to help you out as well.
