    Ribbon Removal With Intake Manifold Still On Engine?

    I read somewhere it is possible, but I've searched the forums and haven't seen a thread/post addressing this. The instructions accompanying the intake sleeve I purchased describe ribbon removal after intake manifold removal only.

    Thanks

    p.s. 1st post!

    It can be done using a mirror and alot of patience.Your better off just taking off the manifold.Its really not bad at all.

    Welcome aboard, its way easier if you take the intake manifold out of the ski. just my 2 cents.

    Man up and pull off the intake. Its only around 10 extra bolts or so.

    Plus when you remove the intake you can then easily drill and tap the manifold to run a BOV or boost gauge.

    The throttle body won't come off with the manifold still installed because it hits the block.

    I just did this, last night. The intake is 10 very easily accessible bolts. Its well worth removing the manifold.

    Fair enough...trust me I ain't skeeered! I am good with automotive mods, I just am a little on the muscular side. I did the air filter today, also the styrofoam....whatever Yamaha thinks they are. Instead of drilling into the cowling, I used 4 washers per side on the air inlet side of the cowling. I'll try that first.
    Exhaust tomorrow, for a mod baseline. Then the ribbon.
    I am wanting/my wife is wanting me to sell it, so I am not going too deep on the mods. I'm old and the dang thing tried to kill me last summer.
    I appreciate the input.
