Hypercharger Mods for the 800 Vulcan
Here you can see the new pressure line from the Hypercharger being connected to the carb vent on the rear of the CVK carb. A tube originally connected to the carb vent as shown, and simply routed down along the frame and out under the bike.
Remember the Hypercharger spacer shown in a previous photo, with the black allen screw being used to plug the 'experimental' hole? This is another spacer that was modified to include a crankcase vent connection, and will be replacing the previous spacer in the coming photos. Notice the location of this 1/8" NPT hose barb. I simply drilled between bolt holes, to allow this connection to be above center and with approximately 45 degrees tilt to the rear. This allows the installation of the gas tank without interference with the new crankcase vent. I tapped into the spacer at this location to eliminate the possibility of gasoline flowing into the crankcase vent in the event of a carb overflow.
Here's a shot of the spacer with the crankcase vent port installed (crankcase vent tube not connected in this photo). Kuryakyn does make an adapter to sandwich between the Hypercharger and the spacer to do the same thing, but I was working with what I had :-). The crankcase vent is the tube exiting the front side of the rear cylinder, about half way up... Route this up and over the rear of the carb, and connect it to the new port installed in the spacer.
