Anyone Removed These?

Hi Guys,

Has anyone removed these 'gold' coloured rings?

And if so how easy is it and how do you do it?

You know I want them black.. but if it's too much trouble I can live with them.

Cheerio,

Roy

I’ve been thinking of doing this also. I thought I saw a thread on here (or TRAT) where someone took those apart.

I removed both the top and bottom throttle body decorative pieces in order coat the throttle bodies and parts. I didnít see an easy way to remove them, so I just masked them off. I blacked out the entire throttle body assembly and left those bronze.

Thanks John,

How easy was it to remove these parts and black out this area?

Cheerio,

Roy

There is a single Allen cap screw in each piece, top and bottom of each throttle body. There are (if I recall correctly) two electrical connectors that can be disconnected (one between the throttle bodies and one on the right outside throttle body). Disconnecting the right hand side one is easiest AFTER removing the top right hand Allen cap screw and lifting off the barrel shaped cover. Them, the entire throttle body unit will come out after loosening the band clamps on each throttle body to cylinder head connector. Very quick and easy job, if you have pod filters. If you have stock air boxes, it is only a few steps longer. I can remove the throttle bodies on mine and strip them down in probably under 15 minutes.

Thanks for this John,

Now on my (rather long) to-do list.

Cheers,

Roy

This is my powder coated version. Remove one screw in the center top of the throttle body cover, very simple.
