Default V Force Delta 2 Reed Valve Install

     

This is before any work performed, just for comparison sake.



First thing you need to do is loosen the Carburetor boot clamps.



Next, unscrew the throttle cable/slide from the carburetor.



Turn fuel off and remove the fuel line from the petcock. After that, remove overflow tubes, and then remove carburetor.



Now loosen the bolts to the reed valve and intake boot.



Now remove the intake boot.



Next, remove the stock reed valve assembly. Then clean away any of the old gasket that may still be stuck on the reed valve mounting area. Make sure no gasket or dirt fall inside the cylinder while you do this. You may want to stuff a rag in the intake while scraping the old gasket away.

Here is the intake boot (or as they call it -- the intake manifold). The rubber tabs that are sticking out will be trimmed away using a hacksaw so it can fit flush against the new V Force Reed Valve.



You can see here why we have to trim the rubber tabs away.



Here is the stock 2000 Honda CR 500R reed valve next to the new V Force Delta 2 reed valve.





OK, back to business. Here is the stock reed valve and intake boot bolted together using the supplied nuts and washers (2 each, reuse your stock bolts). This leaves enough room for the hacksaw blade to fit between so you can remove the excess rubber tabs that are no longer needed.



This is how it will look after you cut the rubber tabs off. I did use a file to smooth out the cut marks better. You can use a file, or sand paper on a flat surface to smooth it down.



OK, installation is a reverse of removal, so I'll not waste time on that. Here is the finished job!

All this is for the rookies of course. Also, this was done on a 2000 CR 500R, so there may be a few differences between my install and yours. Hope this helps!

Did you use a new reed valve gasket for reassembly?

Yeah, install is reverse of removal, so I thought I'd leave it out.

OK, for the rookies, make sure to install the new reed valve gaskets (two) that comes with the V Force reed valve.
