wtb earshave and coaster kit

Anyone know where to find any earshave and coaster kits since sherm's is out now? Just looking for fast way of getting every thing all together before getting it piece by piece.

Thanks for the help

I have just become the proud owner of a '91 vn750. Its a USA version (I live in the Netherlands btw.) and I also would like to do the ear-shave. I also would like to get my hands on a complete jetting kit with coasters. The K&N's I can order at a local car parts dealer. So if anybody has an idea please let it know. I guess there are much more people looking for this. For the VN800 parts are widely available

Purchase link -- no longer available
…remove the reed valves and install coasters. Remove vacuum valve. Remove vacuum line from right carb. Plug right carb vacuum port. (Later / Calif. Models) there are two tubes at the base of the gas tank: remove the one on the right side and plug the port at the tank. Remove the canister and related crap from under battery tray. Vent left side of gas tank to free air via rubber tube and let it hang unobstructed behind trans and make sure the end can't get blocked.... that's about it..........

Thanks for the fast reply.

Above you say a 142/42 jetting configuration is used but I noticed many use a 140/40. I'm at sea level, what would you advise??

I spotted these filters on Ebay, they aren't K&N, probably just Chinese knockoffs. The flange size is correct, but I'm not sure yet if the 8" overall length will work.

The ad says "4 x 38mm 39mm 40mm AIR FILTER..." and "Quantity: 4 pcs", but I still sent a message to find out if that's four pieces to make up one filter or four filters. If it's four filters, that's a really good price if they actually function as air filters. Haven't gotten a response yet.

edit: As posted by Wolfie in post #14, the carb is 34mm but the intake flange is larger than that, about 54mm.

These filters are from 38 to 40 mm.
If i remember correctly you will need 55 or 56 mm to fit it on the carbs.

I think I'd better stick to the K&N filters. Those will fit anyhow. But I still wonder about the jetting size. Should I go for 142/42 or 140/40. I have even read some use a 142 in the rear carb and a 140 in front??
