Hello, hope everyone is doing well here. I just bought a 2002 VTX1800C about a month ago and I'm starting to do mods. I'm pretty sure I'll learn a lot here and hopefully I can interject some things along the way. First as you can all see... Is a new ram air filter unit. 🙂

Welcome to the VTXOA!

Don't forget to mount the IAT sensor.

FYI - Many FPR (Fuel Pressure regulator) have failed. If yours was previously replaced you are good.
Diaphragm leaks fuel to vacuum side causing rich fuel mix, sometimes drains into the crankcase..

Did your bike come with that custom paint job? Can you post more pictures, pretty please?
