I have no idea where to start

Does no one have pictures of what to exactly do? Seems like everyone does everything different and I'm just sitting here lost having no idea of where to start.. I want to do the ear shave with the the k&n pods rc2340, and the Coaster trick but idk where to start, i dont know what hose to do what with or where. I've read post after post and just ain't getting it. I was told I don't need bigger jets because when the po put on the Vance and hines pipes he also install the recommended jets for the exhaust. I have noticed that this last 200miles the bike is starting to pop a lot on decel. Ive adjusted the mixture screw and it hasnt helped, currently at 2 1/2 turns. Can anyone one help me out here? I feel like Ill never get my bike done..

2-1/2 is where my carbs were set at from the factory.

Why remove the air filters? Unless you want to hear more noise or the air filter housings are damaged, there is no benefit beyond cosmetic.
Its a very good filter system, much better than most other bikes. just get rid of that oiled foam and put in K&N.

The shave sure makes carb service easier/quicker, and is supposed to make some power, but I didn't ride mine much before the shave, just a couple of miles. It will also have better airflow over the heads, and it won't be breathing superheated air. Unless you are extremely careful with gas treatment and storage, you'll eventually have to clean the carbs, it's a fact of vulcan life.

The carbs have coast enrichers that control popping on decel, yours could be sticky. Mine were, and a tank of gas with seafoam cured it in one day. I end up needing seafoam twice per season and for winter layups. ... and still got a clogged jet, that's with a brand new tank, and tending the gas as much as possible. Open pipes always tend to pop more easily.

Which areas do you need pics? It's all pretty straightforward if you don't need to rejet .... remove parts, replace parts. Let us know what you are unclear about and I'm sure one of us can outline it, maybe google some pics. I do have one thread about making coasters (with restored pics), but I didn't cover installation. You can just cap the reed boxes if you want, instead of coasters.

Didn't get one single winter ride this season, but that could change ... 70 today, near 80 tomorrow, warm temps all week! Getcher mota runnin'.... cha-chung-cha-chun-ga ...
