Not a loophole. It will eventually get shut down. Let's avoid those things, please.

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

Yep, they broke the first time I took my tank off! A red zip tie round the hose makes for easy identification.

A friend and I disassembled the airbox and now we are trying to get it back on and we cannot get the the rubber air connectors to completely go down and seal. If anyone has encountered this, tips would be more than appreciated.

I use a smear of red rubber grease on the connectors. Silicone grease can do the same. Just do not use ordinary grease as it will cause the rubber to ultimately perish.

Well I have tried some grease, it mostly seems like the airbox itself won't move any farther down or sit nicely. I also don't have the airbox strap so at the moment I have fashioned some zip-ties to hold it in place. The bike will run at the moment but the check engine light is on and I think it could be an air leak.

For OEM parts, best price you will likely find is from MADSS.com - 15% off list price and free shipping if order is > $40.

Use the parts fiche here - http://www.worldoftriumph.com/triump...odel_id=169202
Note that to get the OEM part number, place item in cart then click on again in the cart to be taken to OEM part number and more detailed description.

Do you have to call them? I put in some part numbers and they weren't coming up on MADSS.com.
