Reddie1337 Ordered mine to Ontario Canada. It was very speedy, and Todd was great to deal with. Sent an email, speedy reply and shipping.

Everything was installed on Wednesday. Has solved my decel exhaust pop when coasting to a light.



White spots all over are the coolant that was leaking out the o-ring from the top of the head, those are also fixed.

hessam69 I am from Sydney and I have tried to order a kit via the lamp one website. Upon adding my kit to the cart, I am unable to have the kit shipped to me. I then sent an email to lamp one, but that was three days ago and I have not heard back.

Saabnut Lamp One Designs is still in business. Just email him, faster than personal message through the forum.

Not a stock petcock. There is only a gas line on it. They bridged the vacuum ports together. Would leaving them bridged have any negative effects?

You mean the vacuum nipples from both carb intakes are connected to each other with a single vacuum tube?

The nipple on the right side should be capped.
The one on left side should be routed to apply vacuum to the diaphragm in the petcock.
Assuming you have a stock petcock. If you have a manual petcock only then yes, both vacuum nipples should be capped.

thanks !
I did the same thing, after about a month the valves started clattering very loudly as they fought each other thru the single hose. I put everything back on. You could plug the holes with dowels or get the block off plates or pull the valves out and then put the one hose on or seal the valves together with glue so the reeds won't move anymore. But what you've done is gonna make bad noises....

Well 2 pieces of 5/16 wooden dowel 1" Long should fit the budget.

Agreed. The only thing that's left in the way is the big rubber hose which takes 4 and a half seconds to remove. Anything that costs more than $ 0.04 to plug these 2 PAIR intakes is a waste of my money based on my hourly income :P

Re: Lamp One Designs - PAIR Removal Kit

Unless there is a leaked both always were and still are blocked. The right is blocked by the replacement cap and the left is blocked by the fuel valve diaphragm.

Re: Lamp One Designs - PAIR Removal Kit

Just ordered one.

Out of curiosity would the blocked vacuum line on the right carb, and the open(connected to fuel petcock) line on the left carb cause any effect to unsync the carbs after this kit is applied?

Re: Lamp One Designs - PAIR Removal Kit

I would just like to throw in my two cents on this kit.
Its very well made. I work in a machine shop at my school, so i can tell when items are well made. This kit is laser cut, and as such it turned out really nicely. It includes everything you need (but i would encourage you to get the gasket kit). It only takes a couple of minutes to install, and makes a lot more room under the tank, and cuts out a bit of weight. Also if your PAIR hoses are damaged like mine were it makes the bike run better as well.
I would strongly encourage anyone thinking about getting this kit to purchase it.
Also shipping was really quick.
Thanks

Re: Lamp One Designs - PAIR Removal Kit

I have made a continuation to this post for any California EX500 owner which combines this and documents removal of the Evaporative Emission Control System

It will be located here: https://www.ex-500.com/index.php/topic,40722.0.html

Documented to the best of my ability

Re: Lamp One Designs - PAIR Removal Kit

So, does anyone have a walk-through or know how to go about removing all the extra emissions equipment. I did the PAIR removal tonight. (The kit was exceptionally well made and packaged - Thank You!) But, it wasn't the easiest procedure as this "other" emissions device - which my friend said must be a charcoal canister is REALLY in the way and packaged so tightly its hard to make out how to remove it. Also of interesting note: I took a look in the airbox and there was a K&N in there but the airbox mod had not been performed by the previous owner, at least not in the FOG approved way. I've got some figuring out to do. I'll post pics for reference tomorrow when I have better light.

Cali bikes have additional emissions equipment in addition to the pair system.
