ear shave question...

I put the V&H pipes on today, and am looking at doing an ear shave and coaster in the near future. My question is, has anyone done the ear shave and replaced the stock intake with a single air filter?

YES it has been done... I did it... and here is a write up of some one else... although I did mine for even cheaper than his... I took a piece of 16 guage steel and cut it to the shape of an oval filter to make both a top and bottom for the air cleaner, I then cut two round hols in the bottom plate for the stock carb boots to breath through, and one hole for the breather hose. total cost of parts was $16 bucks... I will look for the part number on the filter in the AM... its in my garage some where.

Is there a Y manifold pipe that can be used to vent the carbs to one side and put a filter there.

i didn't use a filter, just ran the crank case l lines together then ran one to the middle of the filter. as for the "Carb" vent line, I just ran it back to where the emissions crap used to be. I did have to re-jet though...

If I understand you right, you don't mean to vent per say but to draw air in... from the right hand side more or less... there isn't a stock application for a Y Minifold, but one could be made very easily... then run a single pod filter or a rig up a mount for a HD looking filter.. but then the ears have to come all the way off.
