Air box delete/"Ear shave"

Hello I am brand new to the forum and hope like hell I can find some help. I have a 95, 99%stock. It is the first bike I've purchased and I love it. I am trying to do a few minor custom touches to make it mine, starting with getting rid of those ugly chunks of plastic in front of my knees. I ordered a pair of short cone filters and a crank case breather off Dennis Kirk. I started to install them and have no idea what to do with all the vacuum lines and "breathers". Plz help

Welcome!
Here's the "official" thread on the procedure

Vulcan slang for newcomers
Service Manual Download
Wiring Diagram + annotations * still undergoing revisions, but still more useful than the generic one. Let me know if you find mistakes or think something additional should be added

Thank you, very helpful. Now I have 1 more question, what is the actual part name for a "coaster" and any solid places to find them. The 2 suggestions in the PDF are dead ends.

Check ebay for "emissions plate" .

Well, here they are, price keeps going up... Scroll down, a few bucks lower toward mid page. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...pg=100&_sop=15

Several Kawi bikes use the same plates.

I made mine. If you're handy enough, you can use the reed valve covers (can't remember if they have a real name) and use them as a template. flat steel or aluminum would work. I used exhaust paint that you have to bake to protect it. so far it's held up well.

Reed box, I think. Made mine too, a couple pieces of aluminum (free), trace around the reed box, cut, polish, done.
