    R&D has one with the bov included, not sure they would sell just the hose! Link http://www.rd-performance.com/newPro...yamaha/fzr.asp If someone knows of just the hose only for a bov please post the information please!

    I'm selling mine over in the yammi classified section, Shobiz, there's nothing wrong with it. Less than 2 hours.

    It's got the Bosch valve, I don't know if they use the samr flange or not.

    I have one of those (and the BOV leaks even at idle). Looking to use an HKS like I used on this (but to the OEM I/C):

    Ah, I got ya.

    Aren't the BOV's supposed to be open at idle? There's a vacuum in the manifold so the BOV should be open?

    Is it the plastic one? How much boost are you losing? I was thinking about upgrading to the billet one after I get my C1 in, but now I'm leaning more towrds an HKS and having a tube fabbed up. I've also noticed the silicone hose expands a bit when you gun the throttle...did you notice any improvement in throttle response with the metal boost pipe? LMK if you find a bolt-on solution.

    I'm wondering how many SHO/FZR owners would be interested in purchasing a boost tube kit identical to the one I had installed on my SHO. I could put together a bolt -on kit for about the same price or a bit cheaper than what's currently available....plus you would have a superior BOV and a charge pipe that wont flex....for improved throttle response. Not to mention the bling factor And it sounds awesome.....and it is saving your SC clutch and a pending expensive repair.

    Here r some pics and vids....





    Not promising anything......just wanting to see if enough people would be interested to make this worthwhile....

    Let me know what u think guys....

    If it where around $120 or less (using my own HKS BOV) I would probably jump for it. I generally have no idea how long I will use something since I like to play with things so I have to be cautious Hell, in a week to 4 weeks I could be in an RD R4 IC for all I know.

    I've been looking at the 4 current BOV 4 set ups that have been done. Yours is the nicest i've seen yet. But, also the most expensive up front.
    Fabbed piece:$180
    HKS BOV: $220
    HKS Flange: $20
    Hoses: $20
    Clamps: $25
    $485 total

    The other option i've seen is a more butchered approach, but effective.
    HKS 60mm 90* bend pipe $40
    HKS BOV/w flange $236 shipped on ebay(same price as yours)
    Flange welded to pipe $25(estimate)
    Cut stock hose to make connections...Free
    upgraded T-bolt clamps like you have $25
    $326 total

    $160 difference....But wait!!! there's a catch

    The factory hose you're cutting retails for $230. The cheapest i've seen it online is $167. So if you ever plan to go back to stock. A new hose is going to cost you what you saved now.

    So i guess you could either let the BOV go with the ski if you trade or sell it. Or, buy a new stock hose and hope to sell the BOV and pipe and recover the $160 for the new hose.

    Or go with your setup now and at trade in or sale, put the factory hose back on and sell your set up for $350-400 used to recoup the money.

    For the budget minded now, the butchered way is more feasible.

    For the long term value and the nicer set-up. Yours is the way to go.

    So, I would be interested to see if you could have more made up and the cost.

    Sorry for the long post, but couldn't explain in less words.
