Angry Lost part on road.

Well, it was bound to happen. Lost one of the chrome nuts that holds the air filter cover on. Maybe a little loctite in the future. I went back and traced my steps but it was nowhere to be seen. Darn! Anyone who's shaved their ears got an extree I could pay ya for?

I'm talking about the two chrome nuts that hold just the chrome cover on not the entire housing. The ones that tighten onto the tiny screws that the air filter itself slips onto. I'll see if I can get a pic.

Ok, now I see what y'all are talking about. The clymers manual shows the cover with the three bolts. I wonder if its a model difference. I have a 2000 and it has two large chrome nuts holding it on. I'll keep checking.

There were no model year differences on the stock air filters.
We are talking about the plastic air filter covers on a stock intake....right?

I can only assume someone stripped out the nut and bolt that came with it, and replaced it with a acorn nut on front with long bolt from behind.

Well, I didn't know it before but it looks like these are aftermarket covers, all chrome so I guess I gotta find out what kind they are and go from there. Thanks.

X2 The Kawasaki manual shows only part number 224, 3 screws that hold the air filter on for all years. Manual download on this site.
