I just recieved my ebay spike air intake and I know how to put it on with just a few questions.
1. What to do w/the hoses that were hooked up to the stock airbox?
I know that one of them is what I attach the crankcase breather to.(but I don't know which one). But what do I do with the others? I really wasn't wanting to do the pair valve removal(which I think woud have eliminated one of the other hoses).
2. Will I have to rejet the carb if I do the "scar mod" and how many shims do you think I should use. I am running vance and hines big shots.
Any help on this matter would really be appreciated.

I'm no help for the tune on that one but the hoses are easy.
The 3/8" hose is for the crankcase breather, the 1/2" is for the pair valve. As you already know you need to put an external breather on the crankcase hose, and if you don't want to remove the pair valve system you can just get another external breather for that one to.

To hide them both, you can run the crankcase breather down the back bone of the frame and mount it in front of the rear tire down by the swingarm. Then for the pair valve you can mount it under the gas tank & above the carb so it's out of sight.
