  1. Earshave Without Coasters

    Engine / Exhaust / Cooling
    I'm working on the earshave on my bike. I'm following this procedure with one exception. I want to keep the stock reed valves, because I like the popping on decel. The separator VALVE,AIR SWITCH has one vacuum hose, two hoses that go to the cylinders, and one hose that went to the surge tank...
  2. Ear Shave question

    Carbs and Fuel System
    While looking into the ear shave, I'm curious to know if we can simply put a extension off the carb with a simple filter on the end. sort of like a "short ram" on a car. I would think as long as your not RESTRICTING air flow it should work fine..right? Any input would be appreciated!:motorcycl

  7. Air filters - Ear Shave - Coasters - HELP?

    Carbs and Fuel System
    I want to ditch the 'ears' with the stock air filter system and replace with either one pod filter under the front end of the tank or a pair of pods - one at each carb. I'm seeing coasters a lot on the forum connected with this mod- I have NO idea what the coaster is for and how it works. Can...
