POORBOY KIT AVAILABLE HERE
I just installed the poorboy kit on my 84 aspy. I have a friend with an 86 gl1200a who would like to install the poorboy kit as well. Here is my question. There is a what appears to be a smog pump of some sort where the alt. would go. Can this part be eliminated. If so is there any special tricks I need to know. There is a electrical plug, vacuum hose and a cable on this unit.
I have searched manual and some on this site trying to find out what this unit is. I did see in one post the the poorboy kit fit all 84 thru 87. I assume this can be eliminated.

thanks in advance for you help

To me it looks more like an aftermarket cruise control vacuum servo. If you do not have cruise control on the bike just remove it, if it does have working cruise control just relocate the servo to another place.

don's kit is well made,worth every cent in time and heartache involved,its the one thing i can depend on when think about taking a trip,i know a stator is not gonna strand me 300 miles from home,if only tires were flatproof

the brackets etc could be made by someone with the tools and equipment,and the time,but its just not worth the time and frustration involved to fabricate the parts when you can purchase his kit and in about 8 hrs time working dilligently you can have a completed project,the additional parts needed are easy to procure and with a few simple tools easily installed

you'll spend more time trying to figure out what to do with all the added "watts" available,no worrying about how long the stator is gonna last or what stator,regulator connector is causing a problem

asking any harley rider who's ridden alot how many stators he's replaced,if he hasn't he doesn't ride much,but they are lucky its an easy bolt-on for them

I received kit Monday and have bought (or ordered) all the parts with the exception of the belt. I have seen a couple different sizes and model numbers. Which one is the right one for the new kit? Also, my timing tensioner pulleys are a little noisy so I am going to replace them while I'm at it. Shouldn't I just be able to loosen, remove and replace each one seperately without messing up the timing, seeing that I won't actually have to take belts off the gears?

the belt # for the new is napa 25-030310 or equivalent,correct on the tensioners

if you have never replaced the belts,now is a good time $25 insurance is a cheap price,broken belts will cost you 20X that if a are lucky

Thanks. Yea I changed the belts out over the winter but didn't realize the squeek until after I rode a bit. Sat for quite a few years so I changed all the fluids a 2nd time after riding about 1000 miles.

Did you try twice in 10 minutes or twice a week apart? Sometimes people vacation or just have other things going on and don't get to their computer as often as others.
