i recently picked up a 2005 america and i am doing 12000 mi maintenance on it. i have not worked on a triumph since my bonny days back in the 70's so this is a new piece of equipment for me.
there is a hole about 15 mm dia in the top of the air box on the front right side. can anyone educate me as to what the hole is for and if there is something that goes into it. i don't want to pull the air box and i can't tell if that hole will allow unfiltered air into the air box bypassing the filter.

Hello, welcome to the site.
First - I suspect that what you are seeing is the hole where the AIS [ air injection system ] return hose use to go. If someone removed the system they may have not plugged or the plug/ cap fell out. Without seeing a picture that is my best guess. Hope over to the Air Cooled Twins Tech section and ask your question just to confirm what I told you.

I hope you find this Triumph site to be a great place to meet and talk all Triumph bikes with a great bunch of riders.

Everyone here is very willing to help with any issues or concerns with your bike. This is really a great bunch of riders very willing to help other riders.

Cruise around the different sections and find where you fit comfortably. There are tech sections for each of the many models of Triumphs and chat sections for the same. Also we have a great classifieds section that is well worth checking out.

If you want to just hang out and shoot the breeze the “Biker Hang-Out” Chat Section will be the place to stop in.

If you haven't already please fill out your profile. It helps others to know what you ride and where on the planet you are located.

I hope you enjoy the site. The moderators are here to help if you have questions or concerns. Thanks for joining the Triumph Rat Family.

Here is a link to the rules of the site and the classifieds. I recommend that you take a few minutes to read through them.
