    Did Green Hulk's Deck vent FREE MOD

    I have a 09 FZR my foam pieces were diffrent than Green Hulks, They were blocking the Vent inlet tubes, however they had a small area were air could get to the ducts, basically pulling air from around the steering wheel, I did it like the build up thread and like how it turned out, If I ride open waters I will just put the foam pieces back in to help keep water out in the rough stuff. I spent 3 dolla on rivets and 2 dolla on paint total cost 5 dolla.


    God the red locktite on the reverse handle, got 1 phillips screw victim of stripping and the plastic rivits for the white wall all broke under hood, do you even put that thing back?

    Here's a little tip on those plastic rivits/keepers. Use a small screwdriver to push the center of them in and they pop right out without breaking. This way you can reinstall them easily.

    I broke mine the first time just like you did

    LOL I should be good at these, there is alot of them on my car, I have no problems removing them on that, but am able to get to the backside on those. You got those in the OEM store GH? and the screw that holds the plastic reverse handle on" phillips" they used "red" locktite and one phillips srew stripped out.....I just drilled the head off and vice gripped the stub........has Yamaha heard of "blue" locktite on non critical parts....little crazy to put red on stuffthat might "normaly" be removed for service. That stub was hard to remove with vice grips

    Today I "modified" the stock air box.....had to figure out what was so restrictive about it.....only thing I really see with it is a paper filter and the inlet into the box are the restrictions, so I removed the inlet tube inside the box, measured the hole where the tube was it was 4x2 so thats aprox 3" but with the inlet tube in there, there was a partition in the tube making it rigid, measuring the inlet tube was 1 1/4" and 1 1/4" so thats 2.5" the inlet on the SC and the outlet on the box both were 3" so I thought that could be a restriction and removed it, then I re routed the air duct right in front of the air box modified inlet.

    with the engine running I can feel it pulling air from my "GREEN HULK MODIFIED DECK VENT", maybe this will help with IAT& give the air it needs, and keep the hull temps down. Im hoping for at least 68 with the ribbon, I do plan on doing the exhaust "free" mod as well, I want to see where the ski is with some free stuff before I remove the ribbon
