soooooo...

1985 Vulcan 700 rider here.

Here's what i got. Removed stock ears/filters/air box (under gas tank). My exhaust...muffler is off. I have taken the stock exhaust pipes off...cut them in half and put them back on.


I was reading that link posted above about the "ear shave"....Has anyone here done the same thing to their bike that ive done with mine?

i wanted to know the jet size you used. Im currently thinking of extending my exhaust back to the center of the wheel. Just straight pipes basically.

ALSO. is there any difference (that is worth it 100%) between KN pod filters, or some cheap ones off ebay?

ANY TIPS WOULD BE HELPFUL!

PS> Im also about to tackle the following myself : Stator, R/R, Clutch, oil/filter, carb clean, rejet. The bike has been lowered, and hardtailed. rustbucket is her name.

Tips on those projects would help too! thanksssss

The K&N filter gives more dirrect air excess into the carb openning than the emgo pod filter. The openning that works the needle by air flow is located up at the top of the carb openning. The emgo filter gromet covers some of the air passage and the carbs do not operate properly.

This are the filters that I was directed to use. K&N rc-2340 and at 1961' alivation I used 40 pilot and 140 main 2 shim under each needle.

ear shave filters

I used k&n #K&N rc-2340 from Amazon the price was the best and they fit perfectly -- if you raise the back of the tank 1/2 in.
