5 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I know this has been posted to death. but i have not seen it for a 2008 model year. not sure whats changes were made if any from the 2007 model year

fist i removed the seat and all the plastics,

Then with small pair of pliers i pulled the tube fitting off

Then removed the 2 x8mm bolts holding the AIS unit in place

Pull the clamp off the tube and feed the air box tube out.

I do have one question, the rear plug was not friction fit at all... it just would slip in without any effort :thumbsup: does that seem right

also note i didnt have to remove the rad or even unbolt there is plenty of room without getting close to damaging the rad!

anyhow, sorry for posting this procedure again

cheers

what about the carb mods? it took me all day because I removed the sub-frame. I didn't remove the tube/hoses as california is getting pretty wierd on the green sticker bikes. So you can't tell on my bike as I just plugged the hoses up. :ride:

same for 07 from what i hear...........:thumbsup:

Did you plug that fitting from the airbox? If not, your bike is going to suck in dirty air from there. (the fitting is behind the airfilter, therefore the AIS draws clean filtered air instead of dirty airbox air)

I just re-read and saw the rear plug was slip fit. Either put some silicone on it or plug it using a vaccum plug w/ hose clamp
