...the stitch would be tough, lol....but there are Kawi V Quads that have the same setup....for internals, the CVK34s are same...the externals is what differ...
Honestly, instead of siamesed CVKs, one could run say 2 36mm Mikunis, and would just need to fab a 2 into 1 throttle and choke.....and a mount to keep em from shaking....I still believe its possible to make a single carb manifold for these....my winter project, lol....

I single carbed my old Virago with a Mikuni flat slide, made a world of difference instead of those gdmf hitachi carbs that came on the bike.

That mod I linked is what I am thinking of trying with the vulcan in a year or so... after I get every thing else sorted out. for right now I just need to stick to my gal of getting it running this winter so I can ride next year.

I just looked at that mod, and I dont like it....carbs meet too far apart IMO.....ya gotta do a rise and drop, to try to get the carbs closer to the common tube to make it work right....else one cyl will be starving....mebbe can be done in that setup by adding a baffle plate to the closer one to cut down flow.....
I gotta make a drawing as to what Im talkin about.....both carbs should meet the common tube in the same place, or as close as possible....it CAN be done...
Example....if you want the single on the right side, you need to actually make the rear cyl tube go left first, until its closer to the front.....
