Anyway! I gave up. Put everything back together. Went to start it. Gas squirted on me.

So, I've got to remove tank anyway tomorrow when I have more light so if you guys tell me I have throttle bodies, it just looks different, I'll clean and fix fuel hose right. Thanks!

Gas squirt; did you connect the fuelhose correctly, it is a irritating connection ?

Either the clamp was not tight enough or I have a split.

This is my bike. Do I have throttle bodies under these bolts?

Yea take it apart they are under there. You just have an aftermarket air intake.

I was hoping to get a little more info on the process. Doesn't look as simple as removing bolts and lid to get to the TB. Mine looks to be all one component.

This video was what I'd assumed I would see. I have a history of mechanically goofing up stuff. The simple always becomes complex.

Does anyone who has tackled this aftermarket setup have some input?

Sorry not familiar with the intake but I doubt it's very difficult. Take you time remove what you can and don't yank on things and you should be fine.

That looks like a Ness Big Sucker intake. Take the screws off, remove the top plate, TBs are under there.

Clean the air filter at the same time. Looks like a K&N filter, so use their procedure.

I would replace the fuel line while it's apart. Short piece of fuel injection hose from an auto parts store will work and it's cheap. The Vic line is a special shaped hose and a little more expensive, but both are worth it as cheap insurance.

Take your time. Good luck.

I don't see that it is a top plate. It looks like it is more contained with a breather hose and wiring harness. This stuff makes me nervous that I'll get in over my head. I have no desire to break my toy. I would have to go to the funny farm if I couldn't ride it.

I'm going to jump on it this afternoon and if I don't feel comfortable with what needs to be removed, I'll stop. I see removing the filter as a no-brainer so will see if I can find instructions for cleaning.

Bike has 21,000 miles on it. Filter looks filthy.
