my ear shave

I used air filters from ORielly Mr. Gasket #4354 wrestled with the excisting boots and had to cut them to go onto the air filter. No easy.

The small filter for the carb vent is a lawn mower feul line filter.
I still need the filter for the crank case
I think that I saw some chrome half cover that I can use to partially cover the filter in case of rain. I will look tomorrow at Auto zone.

Lookin' good there!
The more I see Vulcans with an ear shave, the more the look grows on me.
Maybe one of these days.

Did you have to re-jet the carbs?

I haven't riden it yet. I don't know how it is going to react.

with all the changes you will probably have to at least adjust the air/fuel mixture.

As far as the crankcase I just used a breather element from the local auto parts store. Can't remember what is was for but the fillter came with a platic holder that fit perfectly in the tube.

Niterider,
Sweet mod!! I have got to try this on my bike.
I have always liked the looks of a bike with an ear shave, but always worried about how the carbs would react. I just did not want to have to re-jet.

I just finished my air box upgrade and found a filter like yours for the crankcase breather. I also blocked the reed valves port with plugs bought with the air filters. I used the right side hose (the long one) and cut down the 90 degree end and the length allowed me to put my crankcase breather up by the frame under the tank. A few wire tie's and it is secure and dry. Do you still have your Jardines? I'm looking for some exhaust and a jet kit for the carbs. The engine runs a little lean now but it is rideable. With performance exhaust and the ear shave I'll need the jet kit. Let me know about the exhaust, [email protected]
