Vacuum Valves (aka - slides) cheaper at Harley Davidson!!

Not being willing to pay Stealership prices has led me to a wonderful discovery. Kawi KLX 650 uses the same slide as the Vulcan 750... It is also the same slide used in the newer Harley Evo carbs. I have found them for a third of the Stealerships price new on the web... WooHoo!!! Yup, you heard right... my Vulcan is getting Harley parts put in her!

That`s too bad the less expensive H-D parts won`t fit.
But did you really want a Kawi-Davidson anyway?

I knew saying "Harley-Davidson", and "lower price" in the same post had to be an oxymoron.
