    How Can I Tell if BOV is Leaking?

    Hello,

    Is there a way I can tell if my r&d surge protector is leaking? Seems that my fzr is a little slower after putting it on. Not sure if is my imagination or not.

    Thanks,

    Lou

    I would check your rpms first to see if you are actually slower. You could take off the seats and put your hand in front of it to feel if it is bleeding off any air. One my HKS you can disassemble it to inspect the diaphragm.

    I checked the rpms yesterday and they were about 100 low. I'm not sure if the humidity had something to do with it. There didn't seem to be much difference between yesterday and Sunday.

    if your conditions allow you to ride ride w/ the seat off - take a spray bottle full of soapy water w/ you and spray it on the BOV before riding. It'll bubble if you're leaking. If it had a significant leak, you'd be dropping more than 100 rpms.

    I will try that this weekend. Thanks.
