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.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.
You're right, looks like removing the bolts lets you remove the entire air box, exposing the TBs. You will probably have to remove it anyway to get to the screws that hold the filter in place. Just take pictures or make notes of where everything connects.I don't see that it is a top plate. It looks like it is more contained with a breather hose and wiring harness. .....
LOL! I'm chiken... but I'm gonna do it. If you've been reading this thread you'll see how inept I am. I really did not go into all the details of my mess of a day yesterday.dont keep us in suspense...tell us how the brake job went.
You know! This is excellent advice and I truly appreciate IT.Pickel
