Angry ISO #40 pilot jets OR purchaser for pods and breather filter

Placed an order two weeks ago with Motorcycle Carburetors.com for main and pilot jets (and shims) so I could do the ear shave on my '01 and possibly on my project bike. Never heard anything from them after I placed my order, and today is two weeks since my credit card was charged. Shot out an email last night (and again today) and have been told that the pilot jets are on back order until mid-August!! Doncha think they'd have sent me an email to that effect after I placed the order? Or sometime in the interim?

So, here's the thing: I either need two #40 pilots OR I want to sell (my cost and I'll eat the shipping) the pods and filter I got for the job. Anybody, anybody?

Also, niterider, my apologies again in re: the airbox and carb boots. Anybody have an airbox and carb boots for niterider for a decent price? I've got extra clamps for the boots so he's just in need of some of the other "ear" parts.

Cindy Darlin, just go to the nearest bike shop or Kawa dealer, they'll have the jets and they are really cheap.

Really? I'm so disenchanted with my local Kaw deler that I have forgotten they exist! Maybe I'll do that...

I picked up my jets at a YAMA dealer for the same price as mail order. Paid tax, but got them the same day.

FYI - do more research here, you may want 42 pilots and 142 mains.
