Air box mod

So I really like the ears on my bike. But hate the boots. Found it near impossible to get those dam thing on! I'd get the carb end on then never could get the Airbox end to go on completely. So when I pulled the carbs to clean resently I was bound to find a way to get the boots to fit. I had the gas tank off. With the top of the Airbox exposed I took a carpet knife and cut thur the plastic starting about 3 inches from we're the box narrows and ran it all the way around the back around to the other side making sure I left my cut on the flat area of the box. Then when it came to putting my boots on I ran them in from the top of the Airbox and got them to connected to the carbs. After I got the carbs ends secured I pushed the boots the rest of the way down and seated. The top was then sealed with 100 mph tape (duct tape) . Found it helpful to spray the boots with WD40.

Interesting, but unnecessary. I found that with the carbs in place, and the airbox tied up as far as it will go, you can first install the boots onto the airbox from outside, then untie the airbox and let it drop down. The ducts will turn in the airbox when correctly installed, and with lots of WD-40 on them. You then install them in the carbs, AFTER installing them in the airbox first. I've done it twice, and it worked fine both times.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
