  1. I'm looking at a used '06 Royal Star.... I've always been a fan of the Venture line, ever since they came out in '83. But what really DOESN'T do it for me is that fugly shroud that goes over the air intakes and blocks air across the legs. My question is: can that gawd-awful thing be removed without jacking up something else or affecting the engine intake? Like does it also support something else, etc.? Thanks to any and all.
  2. Quick Question. My rtsc has little rubber caps plugging the intake nipples. My buddies 99 rsv has a tube connecting left intakes together and right intakes together. I thought that would cause a vacuum problem but before I go changing it I wanted to know if any one knows how it should be?
  3. Got motor back into frame this weekend. Encountered another small issue mounting up the VBoost intakes though. I had the block face milled down .040", this is to raise compression. The block needed to be milled due to there not being enough material on the heads to do this. When the block is milled (or the heads for that matter), it lowers the heads by the amount taken off. Also moves heads inward at the 35 deg angle from vertical. The VBoost intake is a rather rigid unit that did not react well to its mounting holes getting moved. I could not get the screws started. I had to ream the mounting holes in the intakes out 3/64" to allow the screws to engage. Fortunately with the VBoost's rigid intake, the carb rack should mount up fairly good. This same head head movement will also create some additional fitment issue with the exhaust system, but it will be easier (I hope) to deal with. Next is onward to getting carbs mounted on intakes. Rick Butler gave me a heads up that the carb pull cable bracket will need modified to clear the frame, due to the taller intakes, but I know that is coming. Already had to modify the "twinkie" to get the cooling hose on it oriented different. May be going to put a Lithium battery in it to allow the bigger VMax air box to fit up. These new batteries are on back order so I may need to work around the air box issue. And, yes I am replacing that old red fuel line this year !! Gary
  4. Well... I had an inspiration I saw these Chrome intakes and thought Hmmm ,That will look Good on My 2nd Gen, even if it not for a Yamaha cycle, So this is where I Placed it. Sorry Swifty.. Its not brass Plated
  5. Folks, I know this topic has been brought up just recently so I'd like to share what I've found out while servicing my 02 Midnight. When I checked my valves just recently I decided to remove the carbs and disassemble and clean them up while I was in there. It was the then that I saw that there appeared to be some significant cracks starting in the intakes. So I then decided to replace them all since I plan to keep this bike for a long time to come now that I have it where I want it. But as many of you know, I like to take items apart to see what's inside. so this is what I did to one of the intakes, of which I have attached a picture to show how far the inner aluminum base goes up. My intakes are about 6 years old now and even though there were cracks starting to form, I can tell you that in the end they were all superficial. The rubber on these intakes (above the aluminum base that is molded in) is so thick that I seriously doubt that a crack will make it all the way through. But I could be wrong, especially on older intakes. As a special note, when I was finished installing the new intakes, I checked the compression before I put in new plugs. This engine now has about 90k on it and all cylinders produced right at 180 lbs, which I thought was pretty good. Hope this is enlightening, Rick
