Don't ya just love these little tips. Just went out to the garage and pulled it off -5 mins. 🙏So I'd read a few posts on here about removing the snorkel and truly didn't really know what you guys were talking about... Today though I found myself cleaning the bike, i thought hey ill just pull that side cover off and have a look.
There's a bloody snorkel! So i got a flathead screwdriver (didn't have the right tool) and removed the screw, pulled on the snorkel and off it came. Put cover back on started bike and gave it a rev and thought hmmm not much there.
But then i went for a ride, it sounds great! So much more enjoyable to open her up now!
I'd check it at every stop light......:grin2:Possibly, but easy to blow out if that's the case. due to accessibility I'm not overly concerned... we'll see
It's the African swallows that make the most damage. It's a simple question of weight ratios!It'll make no difference to the airflow compared to the filter, but will help prevent European Swallows nesting in there, which is a good thing as the coconuts they carry back to their nests are known to cause issues when the husks break down in the carbs.
