    951 intake spacer

    I put on an intake spacer on my xpl and now my carbs won't go on. Is this due to the spacer? It looks like they are hitting the bottom of the pipe. (Excuse the stupid question).

    Yep, you are hitting the bottom of the pipe with your choke holder. The brass fitting where you push the choke cable through. You can grind on that till it will fit in there, maybe grind a little on the pipe as well. I'd try and do most of the grinding on that brass thingy first. Your carbs are sitting out further now so its touching the bottom of the pipe. I got rid of my choke and put in a primer kit. Then I just ground the hell out of that brass fitting since I left my choke butterflies in and that did the trick.

    Another thing I noticed is that the small plate that a 5th screw to secure the carbs on the side of the pipe will not line up also. Will it make a big difference if it is not screwed in?

    no, I take that stupid bracket off, you don't need it. Its an extra support but I ran mine for 125 hours with no problems. But if you feel the need to make it work, just bend that sucker back to make it fit.

    Its just an extra support for the carbs, but if you have aftermarket air filters, you don't have that big heavy stock air box pulling down on the carbs from the weight. So no need for it.
    How's the ski coming along?

    Its coming along just fine. I got rid of all the stock decals and warning labels and the yellow part of the rub-rail. Ski looks great now! The only 2 things left to do is get the carbs on and finish the dual exhaust and I should be on the water. Hopefully everything pulls together ina timely fashon.

    Got the carbs mounted right last night. All I did was take a dremel and saw the plate that the brass fitting mounts to in half. That did the trick!
