First of a 2 part series due to 4 photo limit:
I had previously been asked for pictures of a TB balance setup.
I decided to do something more enjoyable after changing all the gear oil in Wifey's 4-Runner.
I had a new camera and a set of plugs so...
First up, Plugs! Nothing too special here. These are 0.4mm Denso Iridium. I marked the direction the ground electrode points with a drop of paint (BMW Mysticblau).
I hand tightened the plugs first to check the electrode direction. The mixture rolls forward at the top of the cylinder so I would like to avoid having the plug gap shadowed by the ground electrode. Swap plugs between cylinders if necessary knowing there will be another 1/4 to 1/3 turn required to compress the washer.
Ideally the gaps would end up pointing to the rear. In this case best I could do was to the side.
This probably doesn't make any noticeable difference but it did provide some entertainment.
I dusted off the infamous CLB mahogany differential manometer.
Adjustment was done from the left hand side of the bike.
The wondiferous plumbing setup.
The manometer plumbs to the nipples used by the factory for the map sensor.
The map sensor is plumbed to the extra nipple on the center TB with one of the short factory MAP tubes. It's a little out of the focal field but still can be seen.
The IAT sensor can be seen dangling over the left frame rail.
Both sensors must be pulled from their normal location on the airbox.
Once the plumbing is setup the fuel tank must be fitted. If we are going to run an F.I. bike a fuel pump and supply could come in handy.
Set the front of the tank on but not in the front mount. Pin the back of the tank to its bracket with the stock bolt. I then used a rubber sanding block on end to space the front of the tank up. Space is important as you have to reach in under the tank to adjust the bleed screws.
Here is the view over the left frame rail. There is plenty of room to reach in with a small flat blade screwdriver.
Be sure to connect the fuel line, fuel pump connector and fuel gauge connector.
