    Yes, many of us have done it. The elbows are available at many parts stores (Spectre). SOm are using 90 degree elbows, but I went with a 60 degree. Also, choose a filter that doesn't have metal on it, especially if you ride in the ocean. I used an S&B filter. Here's a thread, and it's also in the free-mods thread. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/yama...p-air-fzs.html

    Rick, I don't remember needing to change any gasket or O-ring with the ribbon delete. The ribbon delete is a very effective and inexpensive mod, though.

    No, you do not need to replace the manifold gasket unless you rip it. The gasket should stick to the manifold when you remove it.

    Just take your time and taking the manifold off is not that hard. Be careful and pay attention should the gasket want to stick on one surface or the other,,and sometimes both. I use a razor blade or something similar to gently slide between the gasket and the metal surface. Piece of cake. You can do it !!

    Make sure you depressureize the fuel tank before you disconnect the fuel line from the fuel rail or else gas will spray all over you... ask me how I know But seriously, gas and gas vapor are a major safety risk.

    LOL I know I can do it, I owned Honda that went 61 and i made it go 68 with some of my tricks and some of others tricks.......noone said the ski would even break 70 and you know what they were right! Hull was a big factor but a nice 1200cc turbo motor tho....


    I was worried because I saw the way the oil pump was comming off the engine on the clutch changes, and the gasket in question is the same material, and is impossable to removeit without tearin it up.
