I bought a used hypercharger and am wondering what it would take to mount it to an 02 Volusia ? I don't have the adapter plate and can't find one anywhere
Also re jetting info would be nice
Or should I just sell it

The trick is to attach the thing to an airbox. I built the first one ever done back in 2002, from memory. You can get away with a rectangular can, I think you can get paint stripper in them. It's the right size to slip into the rubber bit of air trunking that goes to the carb. Just cut a hole in the side, drill some mounting holes and bodge it on any way you can. Ask me nice and I'll try and find some photos...

Here's all you need to know about jetting, assuming you have a set of derestricted pipes... https://www.volusiariders.com/58-motors-transmissions-drives/103608-hypercharger.html

I did a little digging. This was a standard Harley bracket for the Hypercharger, with my home made tin airbox adaptor behind it.



The prototype was made from one of these:


Once I knew it worked, I made up a proper one from sheet metal and welded a nice base into it.

Enjoy!

Ok , read the post and I'm assuming I should just take it to a mechanic
?
I can put jets in a carb but can't tune it by ear lol
Couldn't figure out what size jet you used
( Or I'd order some) not trying to make massive hp just want it to run with the hypercharger

With open pipes, I'd start with a 200 jet, or maybe a 170-180 if you have baffles in there still. A lot depends on temperature and altitude, too, though I recommend the air line from the back of the Hypercharger to the float bowl (that is a standard trick on the Yamahas with Hyperchargers, I understand).

Just run it and see how the spark plugs look - nice and grey/brown is what you're aiming for. Sooty black and you're too rich, white and you're too lean and burning the plugs. It isn't rocket science.

There is no hidden HP for you to unleash. With a proper tune, you re going to see 4 or 5 additional Hp. The bike will be appreciably louder, including through the intake. I don't like the product because it sticks out farther than the OEM filter housing and pushes my leg out.

I, on the other hand, like the fact that it pushes my leg out slightly, because it stops me burning my leg on the exhaust. Sometimes. À chacun son goût...

True what Skrap says about hp increase. I personally would ride the bike the way it is this season and look for a larger cc bike in the future.

I'm not looking for houses just a meaner look and whatever else come with it is a plus too
I never leave anything stock ( can't stand it) and am here to mod it
I believe the whole point of motorcycling is a bond between you and your bike so even if I did get a new one this will stay next to it in the garage besides it already has bars and pipes on it
(She's a beauty)

You guys rock, thanks
