    Hypercharger Installation problems

    Just got my hypercharger and power commander V today and I'm already having problems I was able to install the hypercharger on the bike but I dont see any hoses to attach to the back of the hypercharger to get the butterflies to open and close. Has anyone else had this problem? Can anyone point out where on the bike I can find this vacuum hose so I can attach it to the hypercharger? Also where would I be able to buy this T hose intersection and type of hose i'd need?

    Ok so I can get a vac T connector and possibly the hose for it at an autozone. But I still can't see or know where that vac hose is so I can set it up. Anyone that hooked up the butterflies on their hypercharger for their bike know where and what the hose would look like?

    any vac line on the bike should be fine for a T conncetion. Pick one and inline it....result will be what you after, vac lines likely under the tank.

    Your HC should have came with a hose that you would connect into the back of the HC then to a vac line on the bike. I connected mine to a hose on the top left side near the front FI sensor.

    cut the line then put your t-connector in and hook up the hose. pretty easy once you figure out your vac line. I have some pictures of my line below. You will need to take off your tank.

    in the first picture if your looking down at your tank a vac line should be somewhere in the box once your tank is off. my vac line had a red line running through it. not sure on yours you can see it in the second picture sorry took them quick hope they help

    Yeah I guess they stopped giving you the t-intersection part and extra hose. So what size hose am I looking for since i'll have to go to a Pep boys to find everything?

    So where in this pic is the vacuum line so I can go straight to it if I have to pull the tank off?

    I just bought my HC off eBay 3 weeks ago. It was a Kery Pro and it came with about 12 inches of hose and a T. Something seems fishy with yours. BTW you can take that hose off and use it to by a new one from Pepboys. Also one bit of advice. The connection to the T should be very tight. I would use a dab of oil around the T before you put the hose on it will help slide it snug over the 3 T connections. GL

    Interesting to see the location in the pictures above. I used a vacuum line on the other side, closer to the intake and I ended up disconnecting it a while later. I was getting a slight stumble a low rpms which went away after disconnecting the butterflies. Now I wonder if a different T location would have made a difference.
    And for what it's worth I did receive a vacuum hose with my HC but I did have to go get the T.

    Like Don I found the vac line on the same side as the HC (it runs under/along the wires/connector that has to be disconnected to remove the tank).

    Interesting about the low rpm stumbles Don. At times I experience something similar, but figured it had to do with poor tuning. Perhaps I'll try a different location for the T-fitting or remove it all together and see what happens.

    Thanks for that unexpected insight Don.

    Oh, my HC came with the hose but not the T-fitting (just like Don again).

    Well I got mine from the thunder charger website because I wanted it in black. But the adapter nor the hypercharger itself came with any hoses or t connection for me to attach. And the pic I used above was with instructions on how to install a PC V I found on here awhile ago when I wanted to see how hard it was to install it. My bike is still put together.

    Maybe something to do with the vacuum closing the butterflies at low rpms and inhibiting the airflow?

    Yeah, that or somehow weakening the vacuum that the injectors are responding to. In the spirit of experimentation I've disconnected the HC and plugged the "T". Now I'm waiting for some good weather to see if it makes a difference. To me it was a kind of surging or bogging at very low throttle input in the lower gears. Anything beyond about 10% throttle seems pretty smooth.
