    Need Help with rear exhaust and intake ribbon on 2012 SHO Cruiser

    I have been fighting the tube underneath the intercooler for two hours and cannot get it to go into both boots at the same time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also the Riva rear exhaust is not fun either, can get at that last clamp way down inside, how do you do it? Thanks

    I'd rent a midget or a small neighbor child to climb in to the rear end and tighten it up for you...

    I agree! I always take off the intake manifold to do this. It's just a little extra effort to save a whole bunch of frustration

    I agree, pull the fuel rail, electrical connectors, and the intake manifold. In regards to the exhaust, take off the rear grab handle--it will give you way more space to reach down and tighten the clamps.

    Thanks everyone, so you are saying to pull the intake back off and attach the aluminum elbow then put it in all together?

    Im a little confused, do you have to take that J pipe from the intercooler off for some reason on the FX when you take out the ribbon? On my FZ the hardest part was getting to the lowest of the hose clamps on the bottom of the coupler which connects the throttle body to that J pipe and loosening it up so I could pull the manifold with the throttle body attached out and up. Putting it back together was much easier, spray a little Windex on the coupler, put the manifold just slightly on the head studs and then wiggle the bottom til the coupler slides on the pipe and then tap it all the way on to the studs and tighten it all up. I never touched the J pipe, hopefully its no different with the FX.
