When I bought my 2000 VN750 last week, the PO had done the ear-shave procedure, and told me he'd had the carbs professionally cleaned. He gave me the original factory parts, and I wanted to return to stock, since I'll be riding in all weather, and didn't want the air filters exposed at all... He hadn't removed the surge tank, so I just reconnected the intake hoses to the carbs, and put the factory ears back on. I added new K&N air filters too. Everything seems to be running okay, but not smooth... there's some hesitation at higher RPMs. it dawned on me, and he confirmed that he had the carbs re-jetted with new needles when he did the original ear-shave.
What do I need to do to reverse that procedure and get everything balanced back to stock?
