Yamaha EF2400IS conversion to “tri-fuel” ... anyone do this?

Hello all!
I am investigating converting our generator (Yamaha EF2400IS) to a “tri-fuel” system.
There are a couple of conversion kits available. Does anyone have experience with either of these?

(1) http://uscarb.com/a-c_kits.htm (the “C” kit)
(2) http://01856bc.netsolhost.com/order/...i_Tri_Fuel_Kithttp://01856bc.netsolhost.com/order/...i_Tri_Fuel_Kit

Per the above, there are a couple of different approaches to do this (drilling a carb or a ring btw the carb and air cleaner (to provide the gas).
Has anyone converted their Honda 2000 or Yamaha 2400's to tri-fuel? If so, happy w/ the move?

Thanks for the response. Did you use either of these options?

I looked into tri-fuel generators for a while, but went with a Propane for easy of use. No need to mess with carrying extra fuel, just hook into one of your bottles and done! Run time is sweet too, a 5# bottle can get me over 20 hrs on standard load.

"c" kit. We never lost natural gas with the hurican, so I wanted that option, and with the new trailer, the propane will be easer as well....but it is nice to have the old stand-by gas
