Air box connection
« on: September 08, 2020, 07:12:01 PM »
Hi all

Hope you are all well

I have a question please

Just rebuilt my carbs and replaced the engine breather tube that connects to a side tube on the white plastic moulding below the air filter housing




But wondered where a hose that I guess connects to a spigot on the air box goes please as in theory the air box has a open leak if air is drawn thru this spigot rather than thru the filter?

I guess is just a drain but where please does it connect to or is it just a open pipe ??

Any advice welcome

Many thanks in advance Al

The pipes just goes to atmosphere Al. It goes down the back of the swing arm and dangles out of the bottom of that area.

Hi Julie

Thanks for that

Strange it’s just open to atmosphere but will sort as suggested

Many thanks again Al

It's a drainage tube Al, so nothing gets sucked up it.
