  • Intake Leak???

    Hi to All. Been a member since I bought the Roadie in 2004. Couldn't log in so I just signed up again. Me and the OL went for for a ride last month and when I stopped at a toll booth I noticed idle was a little rough and odd exhaust odor. It was 95 degrees that day. Bike ran great at speed but still rough idle. Just got to it today and when I cover the pilot air jet the idle smooths out and exhaust smells normal. No bogging when I roll on throttle or backfire. Bike is 04 RS1700 Silverado with 22,000 miles bone stock drilled exhaust. I rebuilt the carb 2 years ago(new needle, seat and bowl gasket). Any thoughts before I pull the carb and inspect the intake manifold. Thanks ahead of time, Vick.

    If the AIS has been removed check the vacuum nipple on the top of the intake manifold. If it has a vacuum cap on it it may need to be replaced. they crack and sometimes even fall off. If the AIS has not been removed still check that nipple and the vacuum hose connection for splits and cracks.

      Thanks Dave. I did my own blockoff plate and I don't remember exactly what I did but yeah that makes sense. I will check it out tomorrow. Hey is Doc Shadow still around? He used to help me out back in the day. Thanks again Bro.

      Doc Shadow from the Ottawa area has not been on this new version2 of the RSC. I tried reaching out as I had his # as we met up once when he was going to the cottage in the lake Erie area but never did make contact since the old forum.
