    Man, I remember following your build over on the Kawi Cruiser Forum when I was first looking for my bike! Nice job, and good to see you over here!

    All these bad-ass Vulcans made me want to post another pic of my bike, since I've done quite a bit of work on it since I started this thread. This shot is from the ride to Slab City Riot a few weeks back, so it's all loaded down...but you can see the pipes I built, the ammo can side bag, and the $15 Volkswagen intake. I rejetted the carb and it runs beautifully...way better than stock.

    I might have some close-up pics, will have to dig around or go take some...I'll see what I can do.

    Basically you take the rubber boot off where it mounts to the carb/air cleaner. Cut a hole in the VW intake (tin snips work fine) so that it kinda fits. We had to cut the rubber a little to fit around the bracket in the VW intake also. Then smear it around with the best silicone gasket goop that you have and let it sit for a day. There's an inlet on the VW assembly that goes to the crankcase breather on an actual VW. I ground it down until I could use it to slide a bolt through and mount to the bracket that the original intake used. Had to drill a new hole on that bracket and weld a nut onto it, but it works fine.

    Highly recommend doing it. Amazing how much room the stock intake uses (there's a whole box under the tank also) for doing such a crappy job. Just keep in mind that you'll have to rejet your carb if you haven't already.

    Between the intake, pipes, and re-jet I got about an extra 10MPH on the top end. And it runs better all the way through the power band too. Glad that Trumpnut came over and started tearing my bike apart one night...it worked out.

    The only Vulcan at that link is bone stock, so not sure how it relates to this thread? But their bobbers are OK. Kinda expensive...$7500 for a Shadow 750? Hmmm...seems like most of their mods are just bolt-on, for those prices I want to see something like the bike that JuanCarlos built.

    Hey, was it easy to swap out from stock to a single cable throttle? I've been wanting to do that on mine.

    Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for side covers. Bike's looking good.

    Looking at the LH side pic of yr bike, I got a Small Suggestion for that open space in front of the voltage reg.
    A left-side H.D. teardrop toolbox, flipped over, fills up the hole and accentuates the lines of the rear triangle.
    A lot of people fell that a toolbox is out of place on a custom, but I've always felt the opposite
