ear shave kits?

I've got my carbs off for spring maintenance and I'm going to hate myself later if I don't just go through with the ear shave mod right now. I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has a good lead on getting a full kit? I would like to purchase a "package deal" instead of pieces here and there. Thanks in advance.

Most just make their own....trace the existing part over the reeds onto a piece of aluminum stock, cut it out, and yer done...and since you have the superior VN700, just paint em black...

Thanks for the responses. I went ahead and ordered all parts for a double pod set up, sorry Tofer. But now I do have two brand new stock filters if anyone is interested.

I'm sure it's been asked before but since we are discussing this here.....

Is the ear shave a permanent change or can it all go back to stock if one desired?

Well, if you don't cut the surge tank out then you can put it back together. If you want to just remove the surge tank in one piece, all you have to do is pull then engine. I don't see why you'd want to go back though. The earshave makes accessing the carbs easier. You get to remove about 15 lbs of junk, more if you have a CA model. And the performance of the bike is hands down better if you do it right.

^x2 My only regret in doing the earshave was not having done it sooner.
