SAFE INSTALLATION AND OPERATION RULES:
Before installing your new S&S part it is your responsibility to read and follow
the installation and maintenance procedures in these instructions and follow
the basic rules below for your personal safety.
••Gasoline is extremely flammable and explosive under certain conditions
and toxic when breathed. Do not smoke. Perform installation in a well
ventilated area away from open flames or sparks.
If motorcycle has been running, wait until engine and exhaust pipes
have cooled down to avoid getting burned before performing any
installation steps.
Before performing any installation steps disconnect battery to eliminate
potential sparks and inadvertent engagement of starter while working
on electrical components.
Read instructions thoroughly and carefully so all procedures are
completely understood before performing any installation steps.
Contact S&S with any questions you may have if any steps are unclear or
any abnormalities occur during installation or operation of motorcycle
with a S&S part on it.
Consult an appropriate service manual for your motorcycle for correct
disassembly and reassembly procedures for any parts that need to be
removed to facilitate installation.
Use good judgment when performing installation and operating
motorcycle. Good judgment begins with a clear head. Don’t let alcohol,
drugs or fatigue impair your judgment. Start installation when you are fresh.
Be sure all federal, state and local laws are obeyed with the installation.
For optimum performance and safety and to minimize potential
damage to carb or other components, use all mounting hardware that is
provided and follow all installation instructions.
Motorcycle exhaust fumes are toxic and poisonous and must not be
breathed. Run motorcycle in a well ventilated area where fumes can
dissipate.

INSTALLATION
NOTE: A gasket is supplied for the S&S Throttle Body or E & G Carburetor.
The gasket for stock Harley-Davidson® motorcycle applications is also
supplied. Select the appropriate gasket.
WARNING
Installation of the Teardrop Air Cleaner on carbureted motorcycles
is limited to closed course competition use only.
Some brackets have a secondary breather passage that must be
connected to a breather system or capped. See Picture 3.
NOTE: The Teardrop Air Cleaner may be used on 2001 and later fuel
injected highway motorcycles.
1- Remove the existing air cleaner and clean the carburetor or throttle
body face and the cylinder head mount faces. These surfaces must
be free of any burrs or remaining gasket material, which could
prevent a proper seal or fit. See Picture 1, below.

7/16" black cap
Picture 3
Picture 1
For S&S 41/8" V-Series carbureted engines, locate the breather hose
attached to the rear cylinder head and connect it to the secondary
breather hose fitting. See Picture 4, below.
2- For S&S® Super E or G carburetors, remove the existing enrichment
device and install the supplied S&S quarter-turn enrichment
device. See Picture 2, below.
3- Locate the bracket, three ¼" - 20 x 1/2" socket head cap screws,
gasket* and shims from the bracket kit.
Picture 4
Picture 2
2
If the secondary breather passage is not used, cap it with the supplied
7/16" black cap. See Picture 3.
Brackets for S&S Super E & G carburetors will have a brass barb fitting
on the back of the bracket. See Picture 3. Attach the supplied rubber
tubing to the brass barb fitting. See Picture 4. Route the hose under
the gas tank or in an area of undisturbed air. Make sure the hose points
down and towards the rear of the motorcycle to prevent water from
entering. Make sure the hose does not kink.
4- Measure and record the bracket standoff thickness using a caliper
against a flat surface. If a caliper is not available then skip this step
and go to the next. See Picture 5, below.
Picture 7
7- Measure and record the distance from the bracket standoff outer
face to the cylinder head mount face using a caliper. Calculate
the required shim thickness (shim thickness = bracket-to-head
distance – bracket standoff thickness) and select the shims that are
equal to, or no less than 0.020" of the calculated shim thickness. If a
caliper is not available then select and test different sized shims. An
assortment of shim thicknesses are supplied with each bracket kit.
Combine the appropriate shims to fill the gap between the bracket
and the cylinder head mount surface. See Picture 8.
Picture 5
5- Fasten the bracket and gasket to the carburetor or throttle body
face using the three supplied ¼" - 20 x 1/2" socket head cap screws
(torque to 90-110 in-lbs). There are two gaskets included in some
kits. One for S&S carbs and one for stock carbs or throttle bodies.
Verify that the threads of the screws have pre-applied threadlock.
NOTE: The gasket must be positioned evenly around the S&S® Super E or G
carburetor bore. If the gasket is too low then it may not seal at the bottom
of the bore and poor performance may result. See Picture 6, below .
Picture 8
CAUTION
If the shims used are too thick or not thick enough then damage
to the intake manifold and the carburetor or throttle body may
result. This can potentially cause leaks in the system.
8- Choose the supplied bracket mounting fasteners and washers
that fit your cylinder head mounts. The choices are 5/16" – 18 x 1-¼"
button head cap screws, 3/8" – 16 x 1-¼" breather screws or 1/2" – 13 x
1-¼" breather screws. Use the appropriate supplied washers for the
5/16" and 3/8" screws. Apply a drop of blue threadlock to the selected
screws. Install the screws while supporting the shims and torque to
15 ft-lbs. See Picture 9.
Picture 6
6- The slots of the bracket standoffs must be aligned with the cylinder
head mounts. If the bracket is not aligned then determine if there is
enough intake manifold flexibility to position the bracket correctly.
If there is not enough flexibility then loosen the intake manifold
and adjust accordingly. See Picture 7.
NOTE: Make certain the intake manifold is fastened tightly before
continuing.
Picture 9

NOTE: If the O-Ring is removed from a hot engine then the O-Ring may
need to cool before reinstalling it.
9- If the breather screws are used then the supplied breather hoses
are needed. The breather hose has a 90-degree bend with one end
longer than the other. Insert the longer end onto the barb fitting
of the breather screw. Insert the shorter end onto the barb fitting
of the bracket. The breather hose may need to be trimmed to fit on
some applications. See Picture 10.
12.Locate the single bore tuned intake assembly, two 5/16" – 18 x 5/8" flat
head socket cap screws and the two air filters with clamps. Apply a
drop of blue threadlock to the screws. Verify that the O-Ring stays
in the O-Ring groove. Align the single bore tuned intake assembly
and torque the screws to 15 ft-lbs. See Picture 13.
Picture 10
Picture 13
13.Install the air filters and clamps onto the single bore tuned intake
assembly. Press the air filters on approximately 1-inch from the
tube ends. Tighten the clamps towards the end of the air filter
flange. See Picture 14.
10-If the button head cap screws are used then the supplied ¼" black
caps are needed. Insert the black caps onto the barb fittings of the
bracket. These caps prevent contaminants from entering the air
flow to the engine. See Picture 11.
Picture 11
Picture 14
NOTE: If the motorcycle is equipped with faring lowers then it may be
necessary to remove the glove-box from the faring lowers. See Picture 15.
11-Install the supplied O-Ring into the O-Ring groove on the face of
the bracket. The O-Ring may need to be stretched or compressed
to fit in the O-Ring groove. The O-Ring will increase in size when
heated above room temperature. See Picture 12.
