The "Earshave" consists of removing the airbox (under the tank) and the two chrome filter boxes (one on the left and one on the right side of the bike). The kit consists mainly of two K&N filter pods and jets for the carbs (re-jetting is required for the earshave). Through extensive and time consuming research you can find the parts need or (and I highly recommend this) send a PM to Lance328 and order the kit from him if you choose to do the earshave.

I am doing this this weekend... I got most of my parts from Sherms Cycle Products. I got the filters jets shims and coasters from him for about $100 then I went to Napa and got a K&N breather filter for another 20 bucks and I am going to get some vacuum caps to close off anything I need. You do have to remove the carbs to get to the pilot jets but it is a good time to clean them out anyways!

To Raising Cain: Could you post part numbers of items you ordered from Sherms? That would help me out alot. I'm doing an engine pull to replace the gaskets from a coolant leak. I want to do the shave while I have the engine out. Thanks

No part numbers on the invoice, but I got the following:

142 main jets
40 pilot jets
1 set of coasters
6 shims
1 Uni air filter pods
and then I went to Napa and got a K&N breather number 62-2470
the only thing I have left is to get some vacuum caps from napa

Send a PM to Lance328. He'll get you the whole shebang talored for your primary riding Altitude. For example I got 45 and 142 jets at near sea level. With the kit Lance sent all I needed to buy was some inline filters from the auto parts store for cheap insurance.
