    But, nothing can ever be that simple...

    Without the bracket installed, the throttle body rotated downward quite a bit. To installed the intake bracket, I had to rotate it back up. When I started it back up and went for a ride, it was blatantly obvious the the install broke the seal on the intake seals. So I had to take off the entire intake...

    I figured since I was removing the entire intake track, I'd replace all the seals and even purchased a new fuel rail. This included new james gaskets "blue" intake seals, air cleaner gaskets, manifold and throttle body seals, and injector o-rings. Basically every seal/o-ring between the air filter and the heads. Even replaced the fuel line and fuel filter

    But of course, it still can't be that easy...

    When I removed the intake manifold, I noticed a lot of epoxy and J-B weld. That kind of stuff really bothers me so I removed some of it to inspect the manifold. I discovered a large crack on the throttle body side, going all the way through the manifold.

    I ended up finding a decent intake manifold on eBay to replace the cracked manifold. Has a couple small dents on the injector inlets, but they are purely cosmetic and do not effect the seals on the injectors.

    With basically a brand new intake track, I put everything back together. Ran great, even better than before!

    And ever since I've had the bike, I hated how the head breathers were routed. The setup caused a small amount of oil, overtime, to drip through the filter and onto the engine/exhaust. So I added a catch can.
