Placed an order two weeks ago with Motorcycle Carburetors.com for main and pilot jets (and shims) so I could do the ear shave on my '01 and possibly on my project bike. Never heard anything from them after I placed my order, and today is two weeks since my credit card was charged. Shot out an email last night (and again today) and have been told that the pilot jets are on back order until mid-August!! :mad: Doncha think they'd have sent me an email to that effect after I placed the order? Or sometime in the interim?

So, here's the thing: I either need two #40 pilots OR I want to sell (my cost and I'll eat the shipping) the pods and filter I got for the job. Anybody, anybody?

Also, niterider, my apologies again in re: the airbox and carb boots. Anybody have an airbox and carb boots for niterider for a decent price? I've got extra clamps for the boots so he's just in need of some of the other "ear" parts.

niterider, do you have the chrome covers for the airboxes? If you do, I have the filter housing (back side) that I could have the wife send you....but i do not have the covers

Cindy Darlin, just go to the nearest bike shop or Kawa dealer, they'll have the jets and they are really cheap.

I picked up my jets at a YAMA dealer for the same price as mail order. Paid tax, but got them the same day.

FYI - do more research here, you may want 42 pilots and 142 mains.

UPDATE

AFter sending an email back to MCycle Carbs, I got an immediate response from the same gentleman who'd written me about the backorder until August: "Ironically, they came in today's shipment. I'll have them out to you on Monday."

WTF?! After Alanis Morrissette, how could someone still miseuse "ironically"!? lol Seriously, though, what's that about? Mid-August today, "Whoops, I meant today"? If I need to go to 42./142s, I'll definitely look elsewhere.

The surge tank? You need the ducts between the tank and the ears, too?

Got both; PM me. Be Tuesday before I can send 'em out.
