I have installed coasters and need to know what to do with the extra hoses, the ones going to the valves I just took off, there is a small one going to one of the carbs and there is a big going somewhere.......what needs to be done with them????

Bart -

If you removed the reed valves and put new plates over the holes, take everything from there back off the bike.

Only things you will have to do is get a cap for the vacumm port on the right (rear) carb, and plug the hose going into the air box from the vacuum valve (that you just removed).

Get ready to adjust your mixture screws.

You said you rebuilt and rejetted your carbs. What did you do to require a rejetting? Do you do an ear shave too? Exhaust?

Then you are probably going to be right there. Do you know what the carbs were rejetted with? Most people that install cruisers do not rejet.

The only thing that has changed is that you coastered it? How about the carb vent hose, is that in a spot where it's not restricted? It's normally in a slot in the right ear. If it gets plugged, or partially restricted, you get a gas starve condition.

All carb vacuum ports accounted for?

Glad it worked!

How's it run with those Cruizer's? I just put MAC staggered tapered, same side exit pipes on mine and love them.
