So I ordered the filters and I'm running V&H pipes the question now is should I order a jet kit like http://www.factorypro.com/? or should I order individual pieces from places like http://www.sudco.com/ or http://www.motorcyclecarbs.com/ Are there gaskets and seals that I need to order? Do they come with the jet kit? Should I be getting a carb rebuild kit? Any replies will be much appreciated
The factory pro kits givens you options since it contains a variety of different sizes, along with shims etc., though most common seem to be 140/40 combo.
No need for a carb rebuild kit as long as you are working with a healthy carb(s).
Since you are doing an "ear shave" what you will need besides the filters and factory pro (or equivalent) kit is..
1 set of SCP coasters for VN750 (or any set of coasters for the VN750.. may need new gaskets for this)
1 EMGO Crankcase breather,
Though some have opted to just route the hose to an unobstructed place and not used the breather.
Several write-ups over in the yahoo VN750 files on ear-shaves if you need them.
Finally got around to removing the air boxes, re-jetting, & installing the K&N filters. I think I had a harder time getting the new filters on compared to getting the carbs in and out. There was no crankcase vent line anywhere on the air box so I have a EMGO Crankcase breather I didn't use and my carbs vent line goes to a fitting under the tank. I used 42 pilot jets and 140 front 143 rear main jets 2 shims under each needle. Made a noticeable difference felt like the front wheel lifted between 1 & 2 gear shift although I think I was winding the **** out of it.
