yea... i dont understand why with the '83 750 the pilots are 40 but with the '85 700 they are 42. smaller displacement, otherwise same bike... at least according to the service manual. i would think you could easily go up to 42's... hell i'm thinking after i do all my shit i'll have to go up to the next step which would be a 45. but i'm a ways off from that still.

I like the way your going on the bike, but would highly recommend putting a fork brace back on the front!

i need to find that exact exhaust for my bike soon in a junk yard......got my bike yesterday gave the carbs a good cleaning and rode the piss out of her till the deer came out.....still recovering from a rough incident with a deer and a 250 rebel.....but if i cant find one soon i think i might have to weld a bunch of shitty autozone exhaust pieces together to get the same look and wrap the hell out of it... i envy you man..

sethroach... if you can't find exactly what you're looking for try Jegs.com. they have exhaust tubing in 5 foot lengths. take your measurements and you can have an exhaust shop bend it for you or whatever you need.

nice old school, got one myself i just finished up. i tried the mini pod filters under the tank, there wasnt quite enough room to clear the tank. sucks, i had it all together and i went to put the tank back on and i could feel me starting to crush them haha. anyways, good job!

this is the system i started with then i cut the bells( i guess they are called) and picked up some 1 3/4 pipe at the exhaust shop with a 35 deg bend and stretched the pipes.the pipie that crosses under the bike i just loosend the clamp since its a 2 piece and rotated it up,then welded it so it cant move.50 foot of black summit 2" header wrap later.....

fortunatly i found my exhaust at the junkyard for 100 bucks the guys will need an arm to process your order

that's kinda what i figured too... JCWhitney has some that are "bendable" to fit... for 10.99 each i figure it's worth a shot. they are uni foam sock filters or something like that. if they don't work either i can find some sort of silver lining that i didn't drop the money on K&N pods.

also one other thing i was told. make sure they make a jet kit large enough to allow for pod filters. i talked to dynojet and explained i wanted to try the individual cone filter setup and they explained to me that for my 85 vt700, they didnt make a jet kit large enough to compensate for the amount of air coming in. they said i could try it, but they cant guarantee that the system wouldnt be running terribly lean with those type of filters. good luck!



edit: i just seen you already rejetted so you may be in the clear

yea... dynojet only makes a stage 1 kit for our bikes but you can get them individually from Keihin (pretty sure from dynojet as well) and do your own rejet.

edit: Jets R Us has Keihin jets individually. They also have a conversion chart to see what the comparable sizes are with Dynojet and Mikuni sizes.

do you have any pics of the setup where the airbox used to be? i originally tried that with my bike, but i put it back to stock when i found out that the only kit dynojet made was a stage 1. that was a couple years ago before i knew you could buy the individual pieces. i may end up trying that again
