  8. RQB3263 81/305....i jumped into it this evening ...removal took about 40 min with help... seat bottom came right out....seat back has 2, 1/4 in bolts with nuts so req 2 people to remove...... back panel had 15 screws and came out easy and provided good access to connector hose..... as was described here mine was severely cracked and leaking..... remove the clamps.... remove 3 screws from filler spout next to the gas cap and pull it all out together........the rubber connector had to be split with razor knife to get it off........ and thats where i am now.....almost..... maybe someone could ex

  12. One more pic..... reminder...The new mount plate is now bolted underneath the X member instead of sitting on top of it ....RQB3263
  13. The pics show the fabed mount (simple 1/4 in plate steel with part of the original mount bolted to it)sitting on top of the X member....it was later moved to under the X member to gain clearance for the speedo cable .... that also lowered the tail shaft about 1/2 inch etc to no effect....BILL RQB3263
  14. RQB3263 81/305 Whats left to be said.... I did this swap 4 yrs ago and was just one day of hard work with a strong friend.....my 700 has worked perfect ever since....i did re-tube the drive shaft but cant remember if I leightened it or shortened it ....(CRS)...the shift letters dont align up but I can count to 3 so its OK....the rear mount req mod ...pic attached ...a new speedo cable from Calif 6 inch longer perfect and no speedo error...im tacing 1700 at 65 MPH... no mods to the tunnel....BILL RQB3263
  15. RQB3263 81/305 AVANTI II.... I installed the quick arms about 2 yrs ago....2 hr job ....i used an air hammer (actually an aircraft rivet gun) to knock them loose. installed the new ones with anti-seze...yes they do make steering quicker....thats just geometry....but you will get used to it and not even feel the difference after a mile ....worth while.....have fun.....BILL IN FLORIDA
