    Default Problem, Intake Manifold

    Decided to check my Carb Sync today, was getting set up, and warming up the engine.

    What do I hear ? the sucking sound from #1 Carb. Pretty loud. So, 3 hours of work, pulling out the intake manifold, and replaceing. Oh well, runs good now.

    OH, It did NOT RAIN, in Seattle today !!! Sunshine, and about 65 deg F.

    FINALLY!! Some hint of Global Warming !!! Hmmm,,, might go rideing tomorrow.

    Default Risers

    Hi George,

    Maybe you can help me out.
    Do you know if I can install risers on an 08 RSTD?
    I would really like to pull the handle bars back more.

    Thanks
    Gino

    How did that intake boot get torn like that, George? Did it just peel away?

    Default Not sure

    Not sure, 73K on it. I was just checking things, put screwdriver on all 4 clamps, just to make sure they were tight. Seemed OK.

    Started engine, and heard the Popping during warm up. First time I ever heard it.
    Sucking sound, isolated to left side, and most likley the rear cylinder.
    So, if you hear the popping exhaust, you know where to look.

    I loosened the screw on the clamp, and it was obviious.

    ???? Who knows.

    You can change them bye just lifting the Carb bank up, about 1/2 inch. Not Easy, but can be done. This is the second one I have had to change.
