Reed covers?

Anyone remember who makes the covers to replace the smog tubes that cover the reeds on both cylinders. I'm probably way off on the name but I don't have a manual for a better description. I do know it was someone in the DFW area. Any help is appreciated.

Out of the Kaw Manual, Canadian Spec's:
Cap, Reed Valves 11012-1494 ---$11.80
& 11012-1495 --- $19.79
Gasket, Reed Valve 11009-1246 $2.28 each

There are many who have manuf. their own. Names escape me also.
Hope this helps

Snag some off e-bay. Or make your own using the original reed valve as a template.

Thanks to all. For some reason I'm not getting email updates or would have seen these sooner!

If you got the whole block-off it, it's quite good. Had the gaskets and everything when I got it.
