    Use this as a guide for your evo as far as jetting, no need for a kit, just get the proper jets and don't drill the slide.

    *Twin Cam CV Carb Rejet Suggestions - Harley Davidson Community

    and if you are looking for a stage 1 air cleaner, you can do it up with a K&N filter

    Sample
    Build Your Own Stage 1 - Harley Davidson Community

    Auto zone can get you the HD0800 K&N filter for the stage 1 for about $42.
    and the parts in the kit at the bottom of the list here minus the filter..

    Glider as always is spot on...keep it simple and inexpensive to boot. Jet ket was about $30, (remove plug on idle mixture screw or better yet they make a replacement on with knurled knob if you want it even easiers for another $15, 2 - #4 washers 50 cents and the A/C should get you inside $100...the exhaust Slip-ons are the big ticket item here...just keep the old ones for EPA mandated inspections so common nowadays and you should be good to go.
