    Hopefully the attachment works. I'm not used to uploading files to the forum from my computer, I always use my iPhone.

    Remember when printing to change the print settings in Adobe Acrobat to print it actual size, or the sketch may not be accurate to size. Check your measurements before you cut, anyway. Measure twice, cut once.

    Thanks Taz. Didn't see this before I put everything back together. But now I know how easy it is to take it all apart I may do it later. Took me 3 days to install the fuel controller.
    had to work on it a few minutes at a time between going to grandkids schools for end of year stuff.

    Hello all, new to the site and have the m109 with that popping sound. I wonder if just blocking off the one line from the air box will solve the pop/bang sound. Not sure if picture is loaded up with this post. Thanks.....I talking about blocking that one line where the two lines comes two one.

    Welcome aboard!

    That would work, but you will need to reattach the hose to the air box after blocking it off. That hose is pretty short and doesn't leave much room to block off and reattach.

    I used block off plates on mine. That allowed me to remove everything from the "T" back. I then used a bolt and hose clamp where the "T" was on the short hose to block off the air box side.

    You could also remove all of the hoses and replace them with 3 vacuum caps. Lots of ways to do it.

    Darn, no easy way. Was hoping to reach the hose without removing the tank.

    Tank definitely has to come off, but it really isn't that difficult.

    The grey looking ones are a gasket he used.

    Just use the read valve as the gasket if you buy the plates. Or you can save some money buy removing all of the hoses and replacing them with three vacuum caps. No need to buy the plates.

    OK, three vacuum caps at auto zone. I would block the two assembly housing, then block off the nozzle on the air-box.

    That's correct. Everywhere you remove a hose, replace it with a cap. The 2 assembly housings and at the air box.

    Nothing fancy. Just standard vacuum caps. You should be able to pick them up at any auto parts store, Amazon, eBay, etc.

    Normally, they are black but you can find them in various colors as well. This link has a photo of some blue ones.

    I have my airbox off trying to fix a gas leak. Gonna tackle the pair valve since I do get decel popping fairly often with my exhaust. All of the pics in the OP are dead. If I buy the block-off plates from MeanCycles, I remove all of the hoses and just add a cap to the airbox, correct?

    For those who have done this mod, you prefer the block-off plates or using the 3 plugs to plug the hoses?

    Here is a thread I started a while back. It isn't a how to, it is a post/review about the Driven Racing block off plates, but the pictures are there from my install. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Taz. This def clarifies my question. Only other questions I have is with the gasket. See that you made your own out of Fel-Pro, but also saw the mentioning of some using the reed valve. For those who have gone that route, are you installing the block-off plate ontop of the reed valve? Wouldn't you need a longer bolt if using both?

    It's been two years since I blocked off my pair valves. As shown in the picture, I unbolted the plastic covers over the reed valves and bolted the block off plates in their place with the original bolts. I used the block off plates as a template to cut out my gaskets. The gasket material wasn't thick enough to warrant longer bolts.

    Did you just leave the valve/hose loose with just the plates installed?

    Haha!! No. That was staged for the picture to show what came off and from where. The hose and all associated parts are in a junk pile in the garage SOMEWHERE!

    Shane, I hope you guys are doing OK. Text me or message me on FB if the cell circuits are busy. You've been on my mind since Harvey made landfall.
