Jumpingjerry Got the rest of the coolant lines in. Should have plenty of room now for the air filter.

Jumpingjerry Thanks!

Shortened the rear cooling tube so the rear of the hose would be lower too.

Jumpingjerry Here it is all painted up. I had flat black paint left over so it's what I used. It's not fancy but should work.

Rerouting of cooling lines for using K&N filter RC-3240

Decided to do the K&N filter that AceMcqyer posted about in 2009. I went this route because I liked the fact that the filter was under the tank and out of the rain. I commute ran or shine. So anyway I went with the shorter K&N so I wouldn't have to modify the cooling lines. It worked fine, but was tight in there and a little crooked. Also the cooling line spring would rub on the filter and it started to wear the on the filter a little. So it looks like AceMcqyer had it right the first time. I was a little nervous about doing this, but I knew I could do it. Not as neat as AceMcqyyers, but I think it will work. I will attached a U shaped hose on the left side, along with a "L" fitting to get the hose lower and out of the way of the filter. I'll post more pictures when I get there. So far the pipe coming off the thermostat housing is completed.

I used a 1 1/16" drill bit to make the hole. Cut off the bottom end and attached it to the hole I cut. Not the best at brazing, but it should hold up. Capped the top off with the end of a carriage bolt (it is what I found laying around the garage).
