@baldeagle, I tried your recommended site HERE, is that price correct? They are showing 35,59EUR or $48.29 each not including shipping.
I actually sell them now through TJ Brutal Customs.

Hey all, need a little hint. I want to remove the air filter case, keep the whole plastic tube, something like: see below. I have my stock pipes, but with the baffles fully removed. The altitude is 235 feet, temp goes from 68 to 95. I ride a 94 dual carb vlx 600. Shipping take a lifetime and dyno kits are way overpriced around here, but i can get keihin original jets for rejetting. Carb Jet Kit Calculator says i need 125 mains and 42 pilot, but it seems low compared to all your setups. Does that sound ok to you? Should i go for 45 pilot and 130/135 main?
Little edit: as far as i know, from your info, the carb is a keihin cv double, but i don't know the type. I can find same size jet (ex: 40 pilot, 45 pilot) but for type N424- 25B or N424- 21, difference would be in total length.

Medieval motorcycles anyone?

Thank you so much for this visual guide. I am not putting in the stax, but have to rejet my carbs, and this is the ONLY good visual guide I've found on how to get the carbs out. The first time I tried, I did not remove the gas tank or anything below it. I could not get it out. I tried taking it out the wrong side, too. When I gave up and buttoned the bike back up, it stopped starting/running right. I'm not sure what I did, but am hoping a good carb cleaning/rejet will do the trick.
