Take the tank off, 2 screws going in the top of the air box then the top comes off, 1 screw in the front tank bracket then 2 screws coming from the front on the lower half of the air box. Then I pulled the front spark plug out and had to pull one hose out of the way and took it out the left/clutch side of the bike

That's convenient! I have to pull my airbox out of my V92C this weekend too.

Thanks for the tip

Default Sooo Pissed Off At This Bike Right Now

Bottom Line - You can't...Victory designed it so you can't!!!

It's an all day job (at a minimum)...I was thwarted at every step yesterday to get it out any other way and gave up...you have to remove the entire Throttle Body assembly and all the shit attached to it and then drop the airbox down to get it out. Because you have to remove so much shit, you also have to order new gaskets, O-Rings and teflon washers...and the potential goes up exponentially that you will break something else while in there because the bikes are so old...

I'll try again when I'm less pissed off and frustrated...I can't understand for the life of me how they design anything that forces you to take the entire bike apart to get to the major wear items...and don't even try and change the fuel filter and fuel pump...OMFG how much of a PITA it is to take out that the SHOCK!

If I had know in advance how impossible this bike is to work on yourself (and I'm a pretty accomplished amateur mechanic) I wouldn't have bought it...but anyway...that's another story...

Anyway - From the actual repair manual, you have to take the Thottle Body out first and then drop the air box down to get it out...and if it's you're removing it for a TPS change...then you just change it from when you have the throttle body out since you can't get to that with the air box in the way.

1) Remove Seat & Fuel Tank
2) Remove Air Box Cover (5 bolts I think)
3) Remove Intake Tubes & 4 Hex Throttle Body bolts
4) Remove Throttle Body adapter to throttle body bolts and fuel rail mounting bolts
5) Remove fuel rail attachment bolts and fuel return line from fuel rail
6) Remove Throttle and Throttle Return cables
7) Remove Fast Idle Cable and throttle return cables
8) Remove fast idle cable
9) Remove TPS Wiring connector
10) Remove oil cooling delivery tubes from cylinder adaptors. Do not reuse teflon washers or O-rings
11) Remove Throttle Body out the right side

Then you can take out the air box...

Good luck...Until I can dedicate a full day for this stupid simple repair of the TPS and fuel pump, I'll ride my trusty and reliable Kawasaki Vulcan 1500...

Default After Much Drama...

I've finally got the rear shock out and replaced the fuel filter...here's a side by side pic of the OEM victory part and the Purolator F67221...On to the fuel pump that I'm replacing with a Airtex E2000 from autozone...I'll post side by side pics of that next...then we'll circle back around and attack the TPS.

Many have cut the air box out and upgraded to a PMRT or S&S intake. Gains you access to the TPS + more power. I think you can also go back and use the earlier 99-2000 air box with the cone style filter.

Just got done with that myself. Inlet side fitting may need to be changed out for hose size. Just letting you know. Fitting can be found at Lowes.
