Yes it is the two hoses that connect to the side of the air filter housing so this is the right hand one on the left hand side that has this t-connector in it. i have added a video if that helps and thanks for the quick reply.

That is def the TB tube for #2 cylinder, and you are right these should be hooked up to the airbox. The factory manual has an image of this in the Starter Valve Sync section on page 5-85. I need to doulble check that I have these reinstalled correctly on my bike, so thanks for that. I still don't see any mention or indication of a T junction on this hose in the manual, nor was there one my bike, so I can't help with that little mystery... perhaps if you post up the question as a stand alone topic another member will have more info. Good luck!

Kentguy, 

 

I thought of something that might be worth mentioning - Does your bike have a Scottoiler or other auto oiler that uses a vacuum line to control oil feed? I don't have first hand experience with these, but understand that you 'T' them into an existing vacuum line on the bike. Could that be what yours runs to? Is the other end of the additional line hooked up to anything?

ok have realised that was something that was put in to feed a scotoiler.

So the collection of hoses that have all the t-pieces in what on the air filter housing does that connect to please?

Damn that looks good.  

Thanks for the kind words. I am impatiently waiting for the long New England winter pass so I can get her back out on the road. I do have a few little projects planned for this year...

Is that Jamie's new product?

 

I got one of his last 929 shock conversions and it's a revelation. Not just because having a properly spring shock is important for a fat man, it was also damned close to right on setup, too. He does good stuff.

Yes, that is one of Jamie's new BD40 rear shocks that he is building in-house. I hear you on the fat man comment, I am looking forward to having this bike set up properly for my weight.

Yeah, I think these are sprung stock for folks like a 145lb  Japanese man.

 

That remote reservoir looks nice. Easy to fit and adjust. Glad to see someone can get one, even if they're not listed on his site yet.

Moose - the shock reeks of quality materials and craftsmanship. It is a really nice piece, well made and very substantial. I expect it will perform as good as it looks, I've yet to find any criticism of DMr, only accolades for the work he does. Admittedly, Jamie's site is still a bit out of date, but he is very communicative via email. I was on the email list of interested parties and he sent out a launch email before the holidays with a bit of a discount, which is when I pulled the trigger. I sprang for the fork cartridge kit as well. I am really looking forward to getting a leg over these new parts, I am hoping it is transformative.

He rebuilt my forks last year. The cartridge kit actually has more adjustability, but I have very few issues with my front end. It's like the bike just sort of squats, then stays there, when you brake, and it provides a lot of feedback I didn't get from the stock + racetech springs setup that was on the bike when I bought it.

 

You're going to be stoked at the improvement.

The folks that buy his stuff really like it. The folks that buy other stuff are looking for a fancy brand name. (You know who you are...😉)
