View Full Version : VL11 (or VL12) question

08-07-2008, 11:59 PM
So I received my VL 11 in the mail today. I've read up on all the threads about modifying the stock intake piece to use the smoother that comes with the VL12. When i took the intake off the reeds and looked inside it looked different than the ones I've seen. It looks like it doesnt protrude as much and has recesses that look like it will keep the seal airtight even with the smoother on. So of course I slammed the smoother into the reed cage and connected without modifying.

I will post pics tomorrow, since Im going to do more work on the scooter, and I didnt have the presence of mind to take pics today.

Now my question is, if I was wrong, and it's not sealing correctly, What symptoms would I experience and would they be noticeable? I rode for 25 miles after the install and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. I didnt lose any performance from pre install.

Im just worried that it will not show symptoms if it's not sealed correctly but I'll lose POTENTIAL performance.
