The carbs are already pretty much basic. The vacuum lines control the fuel flow as our carbs are a constant velocity type.
If you want to bypass the reed valve system, see the section in the verses on "coasters". Other than the vacuum lines, it's just 2 fuel hoses, one for each carb, and the vent hoses going into a T fitting with the hose resting in the right ear, but not too far in so it doesn't bottom out.
The ears are there to hold the air filters and the surge tank is there to hold the ears. Even if you do an ear shave, you wil still have a pretty tight fit for the air filters though admitedly, not as close as it is now.
As said earlier, it sounds like it may be a vacuum problem. Check the condition of the vacuum lines and their routing as well. It could be one is leaking or pinched off somewhere.
I would also recommend getting the Clymer's manual if you don't have it already and download the Kaw manual for a double check.
