Changing them now is a chore. You have to take the butterfly and housing off. [/quote]

That sounds like a pain, might be a deal breaker?[/quote]

I shouldn't be so hasty to say it is a chore. I just cleaned mine yesterday, and when you put the hypercharger on it has two allen screws on the top hinge, and two on the bottom hinge plate.

I take the outside (closest one facing you) allen screw on the top, and the outside screw on the bottom off, and then the three allen screws holding the housing on. The whole cover comes off, and the butterflies stay in place with the linkage still attached to the rear attatchment plate.

Once you have that off, then the round air cleaner falls right off. Just clean it with a simple green, or use the K&N cleaner, warm water, sling it out vigirously, and then let it dry for awhile. That is a matter of of opinion on how long you let them dry. Then oil the filter with the oil spray that comes in the kit from K&N.

Now I found high pressure air seems to rip the fibers in the filter so that is why I say just sling it out. I found that out doing the k&N on my dodge V-10 kit.

What about jetting the carb? The hypercharger comes with the jet(s), but I have never changed them on a motorcycle carb. Most of the carbs I work on are Holly four barrels and I don't think the roadie can handle one of those!! Is it pretty simple to change?

There is a good tech article in the tech section, but if you know the theory behind carbs, you will be able to change these jets with out a hitch.

Here is a picture of the hypercharger with the bolts, you will see it isn't really that bad to clean the filter.

I was having the same problem Bob is talking about. I even went so far as to put a neoprene ring in the rubber boot to keep it open. Ain't just a shootin' Star, it's a SCREAMIN' STAR now!!!

I have been caught in the pouring rain and had no problem. I have a Kuryakyn Pro. It comes with a K/N filter. This one has a big drain port on the bottom.

Re:Kuryakyn Pro R hypercharger install 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
The hypercharger should be delivered today and I plan on trying to get it installed today. The kit comes with 205 175 185 182.5 and 187.5 main jets. Any suggestions on which main jet I should I start with?

I have an 05 roadstar 1700 that is stock except for BUB straight exhaust. The kit has recommendations for different set ups and the one closest to mine recommends the following:

Main Jet 182.5
Needle (clip in 2nd groove)
Pilot Air Bleed 1.3
Pilot Jet 37.5

How does this set up sound to everyone? Any ideas are appreciated.

I don't think the pilot needs to be that large, but it's your call, they try to compensate by closing the air bleed...JMO........
