VXR Manifold on an FZR
Does anyone know what exactly is required to install a VXR manifold on an FZR? I haven't seen the VXR manifold and am just brainstorming at this point! Thanks

Never tried, but the throttle body on the VXR is on the side on the manifold. I would imagine the intercooler gets in the way of the throttle body.

If so that might be a time when the over the gas tank style of intercooler routing is necessary.

Gonna require some custom fab work however you do it. I also wonder if Yamaha is still making the older aluminum NA manifold. Aren't the ones on the new skis plastic?

Yes the new ones r plastics. Yes they still make the older aluminum
Ones r still pricey even at dealer cost. U can still run a fzr throttle body on the vxr manifold. But one of the advantages is the vxr is larger

Several benefits of running a VXR intake manifold & throttle body on a FZR: More evenly distributed air flow to all cylinders ( cyl 2 & 3 typically run leaner with FZR manifold), better throttle response and acceleration/improved bottom end power with larger throttle body (60mm), better access to throttle body.
but requires custom intercooler mounting and piping.

VXR Manifold and throttle body over the FZR you will see an increase of 200 rpms or more.
