I have a quick question. I am blocking the pair valve hose behind the air cleaner. I see 2 hoses, one at the left/top which is larger and one smaller at the bottom/center. Which of these hoses is the one that is running to the pair valve?

I'm gonna' need someone to draw me a picture. I haven't understood this since it was first brought up. I would like to do away with this thing if it is unecessary.

here is a good website that shows different things on the Fury, has lots of diagrams for the different area's on the fury.

Ohio, Florida, Honda, Parts, Accessories, dealer, Honda Direct LIne

Below is the diagram that I saved to my computer so I could block that hose later, to my understanding it's the fresh air hose that goes to the pair control valve solenoid valve that gets blocked.

Yep saw that diagram. It does not show two hoses which is where I go confused. From this diagram I would say the bottom, what threw me was there is a little liquid at the end of that hose, smells like fuel.

I would say which ever hose leads to the top where that control solenoid is, is the one to block, don't know about any fuel being in it, I wouldn't think so, but this is just me thinking since I'm not at home and haven't done this either, just post back if that hose is the right one as I'm going to have to do this myself in a couple of months.

Why do you want to block it?

You can also go to, MY VTX 1300 for tutorial, and VTX boards, they have tons of info on this.

Billet, to eliminate backfiring during decel they have not been able to eliminate by other means. They have been doing this for years and years. See Biglry Plates.

you want to block the pair valve to stop the popping you get in the exhaust.

It is the large grey hose.

I cut and plugged the hoses right at the cylinders and the air box. Had to lift the back of the gas tank up to get remove the valve from the bike but, I think it looks cleaner under the tank with it gone.
Bike sounds much better on decel than before. There are times a sucking sound is a good thing.....when you let off the throttle is not one of them:eek:

I blocked the larger hose and went for a ride. It is still popping :(

So I reconnected it. In removing my air cleaner housing the 10mm bolt in the bottom snapped while putting it back in. I had a feeling it had been cross threaded by the dealer when putting the bike together, because it was very difficult to remove. not only just getting it started but the entire time I was turning it to remove it, it was difficult to turn.

Luckily it looks like I can easily replace the mount that it screws into. If anyone has a spare around I would appreciate it. I,m not sure if this piece is used after you put an aftermarket intake on. If not I will order it from the dealer.

what did you use to block it, i was told to use a 9/16 ball bearing type ball to plug it, maybe you didn't completely block it and that's why you was still getting some popping. damn sorry to hear you broke the bottom mounting bracket, hope you get it fixed.

I'm not too concerned. I can get a replacement piece pretty cheap I'm sure. Or I can get what is left of the bolt out and rethread it. Once I get an aftermarket intake I dont think it will be an issue anyway.

I went and tryed again. This time used a marble. It was difficult to get in the hose, so I'm pretty sure it is sealed. I will put the baffles in and see if that makes a difference. These tips make the pipes pretty short and are basically straight pipes so maybe I'm stuck with the popping.

It's not to hard to drill out and rethread the hole if you have the right tools, as a matter of fact here at work we did some of that today.

Well hopefully your popping goes away, like I said I'm going to do the same when I get home, if it works great, if not then oh well, it's not going to keep me from riding lol. Those reaper tips are pretty damn loud from the youtube video I saw from RAW so I'm sure they still sound good with the baffles in, either way good luck and let us know how it works out.

I put the baffles in and it solved the popping. Not nearly as loud as the where, but still better than stock. Justin from RAW said that to run them without the baffles would require a power commander. To anyone reading this thread, if you already have a fuel controller and are looking for some good sound, these tips are nice. Without the baffles, they are very loud. I made my 3 year old run back in the house today when I started up the bike. He cried, I laughed... I know I'm a wonderful dad. :D

With the baffles in, they are still better than stock and less than half the price of a full set.

Those reaper tips was what I was debating if I couldn't afford the inferno's, luckily it worked out with being deployed that the extra money I was making afforded me the opportunity to get them. Post up some pictures of them I'm interested to see how they look, I was worried that they were smaller diameter than the stock pipe. So let me get this right you unblocked the pair valve hose and put the baffles in and it stopped the popping? If that's the case then it sounds like you wasn't getting enough backpressure, but either way glad you got it worked out for now. I bought my Fi2000R on eBay for $195 shipped, comes with same warranty that you would get from Cobra <2 years>, so if your interested I can look up who I bought that off of, just PM me and let me know.

Baffles in + Pair Valve plugged = no popping
Baffles out = popping no matter, FC might help

I'm going to unplug the pair valve hose and see if it still pops.

Schmud, for permanant pair valve delete get a pair of Biglry plates, that is what they are made for. Also look at tutorial at my vtx 1300, to make sure you had correct setup. I know you did, but just to double check.
