Break-in of this camshaft is important and you should adhere to all of the following instructions. It is also very important to use plenty of engine assembly lubricant, recommended is Coastal Engine Assembly Lube or Clevite 77, both are available from most automotive supply companies. We recommend you change the engine oil before the initial start-up of the engine after the assembly. Then change the oil again after the break-in of the cams to remove the excess
phosphate from the coated cams. These steps will help ensure that the camshaft breaks-in properly and that you have a long lasting product. Using full synthetic engine oil during break-in is not recommended but, is OK to use after the one-hour break-in period is over. Following a regular maintenance schedule is the best way to ensure durability and performance over the long run. Cleanliness is always a good place to start. Make sure the motorcycle is cleaned thoroughly before you start. It would be advisable to use an engine degreaser on the frame and the engine. Remove the fuel tank and thoroughly clean the inside of the frame rails, around the carburetor, and behind the radiators. Be sure to remove the ignition coil assembly and using high-pressure air, clean the spark plug hole out before the plug is removed. This will ensure a clean engine during the assembly process and less of a chance of thread damage and/or dirt contamination in the engine during reassembly

1. Place the motorcycle on its centerstand. Do this on a hard surface so the motorcycle will not easily tip. Do not do this on gravel or dirt. 2. Remove the air dam/lower cowl to gain access to the oil filter housing. Using a 12mm 6-point socket, remove the original oil filter bolt and housing. The engine will lose approx. ½ quart of oil when changing the filter. 3. Clean the engine surface behind the oil filter housing where the o-ring will seat. Install the adapter plate with the new o-ring supplied onto the threaded boss protruding from the engine with 0-ring side facing the engine. 4. Screw the hollow stud with the jam nut into the engine where the original filter bolt went. Note that the end with the longer portion of threads goes into the engine. Screw the stud in until it is finger tight. Check to be sure the o-ring on the back of the filter plate is sill in its groove. Tighten the jam nut with a 12″ crescent wrench. Be careful your wrench does not slip and marr the surface of the filter plate. Use approx. 15 to 20 lbs of force at the end of the wrench to tighten the stud. 5. YAMAHA VENTURES ONLY : The frame brace needs to be raised slightly to give you more clearance for a filter wrench when changing your filter in the future. This brace between the right & left frame rails directly over the filter. Loosen the four (2 per side) 8mm bolts (12mm wrench size) that have the long acorn nuts. After loosening the four bolts, you will notice that there is approximately ¼” slack in these bolts. Lift the brace up as far as possible & retighten the bolts. 6. Coat the new filter gasket with oil. Spin the new filter onto the adapter plate until the gasket makes contact, and then tighten ¾ of one turn. This must be done each time you install a new filter. Use a filter wrench if necessary. Be sure your filter is tight! 7. Add ½ quart of oil or change the oil if you desire. Start the engine. Allow it to run for 30 seconds or more. Rev the engine to 4,000 rpm for 20-30 seconds. Shut the engine off & check thoroughly for any oil leaks.

1. Remove the rider and passenger seats, left chrome side cover & original horn located at the top of the radiator. 2. Locate the supplied black horn mounting bracket and supplied smaller hose clamp. Notice the slight twist in the bracket. Using 2 adjustable wrenches or a vise and one wrench remove the twist from the bracket. Route the hose clamp thru the bracket. (As shown in photo 1A) 3. Install the bracket on to the left frame tube, (As shown in photo 1A) and tighten securely. Bolt the supplied horns to the bracket using the supplied bolt, lock washer and nut, (As shown in photo 1) and tighten securely. Install the supplied trumpet covers (As shown in photo 1B) by flexing the spring clips over the trumpets. Check that they fit securely. If not remove covers, make sure the center screw is tight and bend spring clips in towards center of covers and re-install. Using a blade screwdriver pry the two supplied hoses with the “Y” connector off of the air horns cut a new piece of hose 3 ½” long from the hose and replace the short hose on the “Y”. Re-install the “Y” hose assembly with the short hose going on the long or upper trumpet. (See photo 1C) Re-route the original horn wires. (As shown in photo 1D) 4. From the supplied wire cut 2 pieces 28″ long. Strip ¼” of insulation from both ends. Crimp 2 supplied male terminals to one end and 2 supplied female spade terminals to the other end. Plug the male ends into the original horns wires. (As shown in 1D) Attach the remaining air hose to the “Y”. Tape the hose and wires together every 6-8″ using electrical tape to make routing easier and neater. Route the wires and hose up under the fuel tank, over the cylinder heads coming out between the frame rails at the rear of the fuel tank. (See photo 2A) Locate the supplied relay and plug the 2 wires from the original horn onto terminals 85 & 86 on the relay. (See wiring diagram on back of last page of instructions) This will be the 2 outer terminals that are parallel to each other. Locate the supplied fuse, holder & wire assembly. Crimp a supplied fork terminal to one end and a supplied female spade to the other. Attach the spade terminal to one of the remaining outer relay terminals. (#30 or 87 on wiring diagram) Remove the 3 Phillips screws from the battery top cover. Remove the cover and attach the fork end of the fuse wire to the positive (+) terminal. Re-install the battery cover. 5. Cut a wire 9″ long and strip ¼” insulation from each end, crimp a fork to one end and a female spade to the other. Attach this wire to the compressors negative (-) terminal. Cut another wire 18″ long and strip both ends. Crimp a female spade to both ends. Attach this wire to the compressor positive (+) terminal. Route the air hose out under the left side cover as shown in photo (3). Hold the compressor in place against the frame tube. Note: Looking at the large end of the compressor the space between the hose fitting and the bolt mounting flange forms a “V” shape. This is where the compressor should rest against the frame. Next loop the hose around to the compressor hose fitting and trim the hose to the desired length. Attach the hose to the compressor. Secure the compressor to the frame using 2 large supplied cable ties as shown. 6. (See photo 3A) Attach the compressor negative (-) wire to the bolt on the frame (As shown in photo 3B) Route the compressor positive (+) wire along the side up to the relay and attach to the remaining outer terminal 87 or 30. Cable tie the relay in place. (As shown in photo 2B) Use several of the supplied short cable ties to secure the compressor wires to the air hose (As shown in photo 3) as wells as any other loose wire or hose.

Locate the fuel injectors and their connectors on the intake manifolds between the “V” of the engines cylinders. You may remove the fuel tank to gain easy access to the plugs or you can make the connections with the tank on as follows. Remove the rear fuel tank mounting bolt and loosen the front two bolts. Lift the rear of the tank as high as possible (2-3 inches) and place a piece of wood between the tank and frame to hold the tank up. 2. Mounting the POWERMASTER™ EFI Module. While you can mount the module most anywhere it is recommended to mount it under the right hand side cover for easy access when making adjustments. Find a suitable surface to mount the Velcro Adhesive Square supplied. Clean the surface with rubbing alcohol, peel the backing and press firmly in place. Press the Module onto the Velcro. Route the wires with the plugs for the injectors between the frame rails and up toward the injectors with the other wires located on the backbone of the frame. If yours is a model with wires and plugs for the oxygen sensors route these wires downward with the short lead going to the plug on the rear exhaust pipe (about 6″ from the cylinder head) and the longer following along the right frame tube under the engine and forward to the front oxygen sensor and its plug.3. Connect the wires to the injectors under the fuel tank as follows. Unplug the bike’s wire harness from the injectors. Connect the male and female connectors from the injectors and the wire harness to the RIVCO POWERMASTER™ EFI Module. This places it electrically between ECU and the injectors. Repeat this process for each injector. NOTE it does NOT matter which lead goes to which injector.
