here's a cheap and easy fix i made to the broken air box drain. i'll end up replacing it completely someday whenever a reasonably priced used box surfaces

coffee before i get started (Triumph Tiger mug :cool:)


broken air box drain tap


the fix though i ended up using a longer piece of red line


partial install


put fuel resistant gasket sealant on, should be dry in 24 hours

finally got to ride it today and what a difference an air leak like that makes. since the drain is on the carb side of the filter having it unblocked (there's a plug in the drain pipe for those new to the bike) causes a serious problem with the air-fuel ratio. i noticed an immediate difference when starting the bike since the air mixture is proper again

Just replaced my air filter/box.... If you want the old one, pm me.

Shipping from Colorado shouldn't be much....

Darien.
