    Fizzle IC install problems

    Enforcer and I are trying to install the Fizzle IC kit on my 2009 FZS and are having fitment issues. Did anyone else have problems with their kit and getting it to install properly?? We all know the instructions are cryptic at best, but we have literally tried everything to get this thing to fit and it isn't working.

    First we followed the directions and tried to mount the IC with the bracket on top of the mount on the intercooler.... that hits the hull... so we contacted James and he said "I'm not sure what's up with the fitment. Some people put the bracket one way, some people have to put it upside down" I don't see how that is possible if all of the kits are made the same, but whatever... so we then flipped the bracket over and tried to mount it below the mount on the intercooler... nope... now it hits the manifold. I'm guessing the mount on the IC wasn't welded in the correct place or something. Has anyone else had these issues? Any suggestions? I know James would help out if he could but he knows next to nothing about Yamahas (his words not mine). We are both trying to get our skis ready in time for Mudbug (his Fizzle install was supposed to be next) and this isn't helping things!

    Just so everyone knows James (Jfizzle) has already offered to send out another IC to replace this one, we just wanted to make sure it wasn't anything WE were doing wrong!

    The rectangular bar mount with the angle machined in it might be facing the wrong way. Email me some pictures please.

    sounds like bracket backwards.
