I have a 2004 Arctic Cat 1M 900 efi that i recently purchased and have noticed that the steering post is rubbing through the throttle body boot and bell. I have checked everything i can and all seems straight. Nothing bent. What I did notice though is a spacer plate mounted between the intake and reed valve assembly that does not show in the parts breakdown. This would definitely cause the throttle bodies to sit back at least 3/8". Anyone know if I can remove this or is it there due to a different reed setup ?

spacers

they add to the cc of the engine.
some were to move the reeds away from the case
yes remove them and gain your clearence back.
you may have to trim the carb boots if they hit your aftermarket reeds

Turns out that it's not a a spacer. It's actually part of the reed box and cannot be removed separately. Thinking maybe it's an aftermarket reed box. Still frustrated with the clearance issue even after spacing the saddle block further away from the steering post support.
