    Tr-1 ribbon delete

    Did my 10 hr oil change today on my EX deluxe, while I was working on it I tried to remove the ribbon. I got the air box and TB removed no problem, got to the ribbon, and I'm not sure how this thing comes out. It looks like it's built in to the manifold. Has anyone out there removed the ribbon from a tr-1? How did you take out the ribbon?

    I know there's not a lot of EXs out there, but the same motor is in the VX since 2016 right? Thanks in advance!

    Re: Tr-1 ribbon delete

    That's just it though, I'm not finding any rubber. There is a lip around it in the manifold itself, like the ribbon is installed from inside the intake manifold. I tried prying on the edges of the ribbon with a pick and got no movement, although I didn't put a lot of force into it as I didn't want to beat on a brand new ski. There is nothing to grab and pull but the ribbon itself, and can't do that without destroying the thing. Before I just start ripping at it would like to know if it is even removable from the outside of the manifold.

    Yeah, I went ahead and removed it. It was a pain in the ***. The intake manifold is cast plastic, the ribbon is cast into it when the part is made. I didn't really notice any difference, if I had it to do again I would not waste my time.
