what the hell are you talking about?FHL said:I need an EGCV for my exhaust for it to work. What's the best way to go about getting one of these. I don't know naything about it so should I have my mechanic install the whole exhaust system for me?
or just get an HTEV eliminator and not have to worry about hooking up cables. I think a little info is still missing, FHL do you have the rest of the stock exhaust, is your HTEV broken, do you have a full exhuast, its gotta be one of those 3 I assume.SomeStrangeGuy said:It is a piece that exists on the stock honda exhaust system after the header and before the exhaust.
Your bike will run with it, just not optimally. Most folks with full systems have to lose the HTEV when they put on their full system, an HTEV cannot be added to an aftermarket system (reasonably). Might lose a bit on the bottom end and some fuel efficiency if you do not have an HTEV.
If you have a full stock system and do not have an HTEV on it :huh: you will need one to connect the pieces of the exhaust with one another. It goes under the bike somewhere afore the oil pan right after the collector. has some cables and junk going to it.
you mean the sensor piece to eliminate the FI light? You could just disconnect the cables and make sure you don't touch the sensor (I did) if that was the case too.CBR929RE said:or just get an HTEV eliminator and not have to worry about hooking up cables.
ok...so it sounds like the whole stock exhaust is there? and the HTEV is maybe missing a pulley?FHL said:The whole exhaust is there, the HTEV valve is there too, it just has 4 bolts and nothing on it. I really want it on the bike cause I can tell now that I took my PCIII off my Arata it's going to run like shit in the bottom end without it. I didn't really much like the power band of the Arata exhaust anyway I'd rather have the low end of the stock exhaust.
I'm just asking should I get oem parts from my mechanic and have him install it since I have no clue where to put the wires, or try to buy one off ebay first.
Yes I am...SomeStrangeGuy said:ok...so it sounds like the whole stock exhaust is there? and the HTEV is maybe missing a pulley?
Id say skip the OEM thing and look for something off ebay...that part is like 300$ from a dealer I think, maybe more.
But...the arata is entirely off, or you have an arata slip on on the OEM pipe?
am I remotely with the program here?
am I helping?
am I evil?
I was thinking about just taking the whole HTEV contraption out and putting in something like a Hass HTEV eliminator or one from another company.SomeStrangeGuy said:you mean the sensor piece to eliminate the FI light?

I just have no idea where the problem exists here, and it's already 5 posts old...
