Air box pipe location

Hi all, so I decided to change my air filter and found when I went to put it all back together I cannot see where these 2 pipes should go!! Anyone care to help me out? I also now have the engine light on. Cheers Danny

Hi Danny,
The first pipe goes to an air pressure sensor on the left side of the air box

The second pipe is the air box drain shown as item 12 in the diagram below. I believe it has some sort of valve in the end (item 14) to let waste drain out but not be sucked in. I'm sure other owners have left this open with no problem.

The engine light has probably come on because you switched the ignition on whilst the tank was off and not everything was connected. This should sort itself after a run and the bike gets up to temperature.

Rob.

Took it for a run but the light is still on. Once I get the cable Iíll connect to tuneecu and see what faults there are and hopefully get rid of it.

Start the bike but don't touch the throttle at all. Let it go through 3 heat cycles - radiator fan comes on 3 times - switch off. Hopefully your bike will have reset itself and that engine light will have gone out.

Just ride it. The engine light will look after itself. (3 heat cycles as Rob said)
