    Throttle Bodies Installation

    Looking at the service manuals you need to drain the tank of fuel before being able to remove the fuel delivery pipe? Any way around that or a link to a guide somewhere?

    Job done, only to find that the velocity stacks on the hooked airbox foul the butterfly valves. Anyone got the appropriate part for sale or a link to it?

    Surely thats leaving a restriction in place? wider TB's would want wider stacks.

    must be better to get the stacks from a 2004> bike's airbox, wider-more flow, and they seat correctly in the TB groove.

    (not talking from experience here - just throwing it out there)

    was thinking if you fit 57 stacks in a hooked box if it wasnt meant for 57's you need to fettle the plate..i.e. dremel out to fit the stacks in and trim the bottoms off...thats what had to be done to mine anyhow when we used a 51mm plate and 57 stacks and tb's
