hey guys, so heres my question, maybe somebody has had this also. I am running a PC2000 pv top end, pyramid reed valve, and 38mm air stryker. anyways, I heated up the air box boot, put it on the carb no problem. i then heated up the intake boot, put it on the carb no problem. I then went to install it all, and everything is fine, the problem is that the air box boot does not fully reach the airbox itself. so, i then installed a reed spacer to "push" everything back a little, and the air box boot fits fine. It also runs well. the problem is that Duncan is telling me NOT to run the reed spacer, in that Im losing a lot of power, especially low end. But I dont want to risk a airleak between the airbox boot and the air box. What do you guys think? I was also thinking I could modify the airbox mounting a bit to move it forward more. anyt houghts? I included a pic of an extra irbox/boot I have. This is what it looked like when I tried to mount it without the reed spacer: you can see I could not get it to fully seat, and Im afraid when I clamp it down with a hose clamp, it will make it slide off.
