    Re-Installing the IC outlet to the TB (2010 FZS)

    Can anyone give any tips on reinstalling the IC outlet to the Throttle Body? I have spent almost 2 hours trying to do this...and honestly, i'm about ready to take it to a dealership. Or light the ski on fire.


    This was following the Ribbon Delete mod, Intake manifold is bolted up...this is my last step in finishing the install.

    Hahahaha Been there. Best trick I've found is to stuff a couple of old beach towels along side the motor and flatten them out to catch anything that drops

    Most of the hardware is stainless and a magnet won't pick it up.
