Because machined aluminum plates won't ever deteriorate and/or crack and split, or pop off, allowing a leak like a rubber vacuum cap could.miykl said:Go for $2 in vacuum caps and it's damn easy. Why spend $30 on something no one will ever see?
I used zip ties to secure mine, "just in case". Also, if rot is a problem for the big thick caps used, you'll have other problems much sooner from the smaller thinner vacuum caps and tubes 3 inches away on the throttle bodies. ...unless the block off caps are exposed to much more direct heat contact...:dontknow: The caps on my Busted up Bloo Bike were/are there for a year (as of next week). Zero problems.CanyonCarver said:Because machined aluminum plates won't ever deteriorate and/or crack and split, or pop off, allowing a leak like a rubber vacuum cap could.
Got the replacement peg for my Gilles last night. Champ's no cut sliders and swing arm sliders on on the shelf. Barend mirror lens should be in early next week. Should have mave Pazzo levers back soon too. They are being repainted due to scuffs from the wreck. So by next week the bike should be 100%. Nothing left to do but beat Pesky!MAVRIK said:true true...how is the new bike coming miykl
If you are developing the engine, they make life easier. When ever you goto a dyno, the air suction system has to be totally disabled. Plus they clean up the engine area, and save a little weight.crispin said:why do people care.
I think it is cool to have the popping noises.
It doesn't hurt the performance and sounds good.
Why get rid of it?
That's a trick I have to learn. I can leave the boots when pull I the box out, but that's not the case putting it back in.Bobster said:I have R&R the air box twice. Its not that difficult to me. I leave the rubber boots in place too. Just look at the angles in the frame and use the appropriate angles to tilt and twist. The second time it took about 5 mins to remove and the same to replace. Try not to fight it, its really not hard.
