Ear Shave

Well, I 'm doing the ear shave tomorrow. I have a Factory Pro jet kit
CRB-K24-3.0 and UNI PK-92 filters. Just wondering if anyone has any last minute advice before I start gettin' dirty. TIA

Thumbs up

Sorry I can't give you any last minute advice. I've been thinking of doing this myself. Wishing you a clean, smooth shave...

Exclamation How did it go?

Hope it went well!!


Ive been working on my bike for nearly 2 and a half years now, and im at the stage where im getting the bugs out of the system and sorting the final details.



Now i know i need some filters but i cant find any that will fit, with the carbs exiting at extreme angles, and Ive been looking all over the UK for a kit to re-jet my carbs, to no avail!!

Can someone please help me?

It should take you right to the filter that I bought. They fit nice but you will have to shim the rear of the tank a little to make them clear.

Rubber nipples to cover the vacuum posts when you remove some of your vacuum hoses. I put the nipple covers on and then used small zip-ties to secure them at the base. No leaks 5 years later...

See the picture - it is the red part on the rear of the carb. I don't remember how many, but they were necessary...

You only need one. This is for the vacuum port on the right side of the bike. The one on the left is connected to the pet cock.
