    This is a HOW TO that I'm posting for another member. That member is concerned with warrenty issues and doesn't want it to be known. So the props go to that member, not I.

    great how to - presumably if I change my TP boxes for S&S its the exact same procedure, without having to remove the rocker assembly?

    If you were to change out your TP's, it would be everything from the head up I believe.

    bighouse, sorry but probably wouldn't work on a pro-street. T-mack, this was on a K9 with a 117. the gasket apparently had a small tear from the dog pound.

    Big House, the service manual doesn't say anything about not being able to do the job. It does say that you would have to remove the gas tank on Pitbulls and Mastiffs. Nothing said about Bulldogs.

    So I have a small leak from exact same back left corner of the rear cylinder...am assuming it is the same gasket as this post referes to. My question is will I will be able to do this on an 05 ridgeback with the engine still in the frame? The chrome rocker box cover appears to be very close to the frame above it. Once the allens are out of, can it be slid out of the way, or actually has to come "up" and off?

    I would say yes. You can see in the pics the original person still had everything in the bike...

    Question about this job

    The S&S part # I found is DS-174501. The picture showes a bunch of gaskets. Does the contents of this kit have everthing you need to do both cylinders, or is this just for one cylinder? Also the kit says it is For 84-99 S&S Evolution style billet rocker boxes. Will this fit a '03 107 cubic inch?

    the kit will be for both boxes. your 107 is a true evo style so the blue kevlar lower box gasket will be a 2 piece for each box. unlike the TC style which is a 1 piece. i'd buy through a dealer if your not sure what you have.

    I appreciate the info. and That part number came from a dealer down here in Texas. I just did a google search for it so I could see a picture of what all came in the kit. Thanks again!

    Just one note on this how-to. After removing the rocker boxes on my '05 Pitbull, I had to modify 2 tools in order to remove it. The frame of the bike lies directly over 2 bolts that have to be removed. First, the rocker box lid has an allen bolt under the frame. I had to cut the short end of the allen wrench by about 1/2" for it to fit under the frame into to allen bolt head. Second, once the rocker box lid is removed, there is a 1/2" hex head bolt that is directly under the frame. I had to cut 1/2" socket in half and used the small 1/4" drive wratchet wrench in order to get onto the bolt. They may have both of these tools for sale somewhere, but it was an easy modification.
