The Bleeping 400f Air Box - A Tool
« on: May 15, 2022, 01:13:21 PM »
Time to give to the forum, I was looking at posts and videos about getting the air box onto the carbs after the carbs were installed. I tried yesterday, even with my heat gun and failed.
Today I made a tool out of wood and fitted the box very quickly.
Here are a few photos of what I made.

Oval shape, using the metal link part that goes into the airbox as a pattern.

It is one and a half inch thick, give or take...

In situ ready to put some pressure on the, well that part that never goes over the carb to easily.

Wrench to apply the pressure.

So, one hand on the wrench one on the screwdriver and I was pleased

Geat tip Eldric.

That looks a neat idea, really easy without any tool if you have no rear wheel or mudguard fitted - as you say an absolute  pig otherwise.

I'll look at making something like that next time I have to do it in situ. Did you look at using a long bolt instead of two long screws or does that make getting in situ impossible?

I just don't have bolts so used what I had.
