Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

sub air filter

Post by skyrider on Mon 11 Jan 2016, 7:52 pm

as I had the tank off the bike I thought I would check the sub filter, I un coupled it from the pipework and looked in side the plastic box and was greeted by what really I was expecting, it was a disintegrated gungy mess and it had probably been installed when the bike was new in 99, so I took it inside the house and washed everything out with hot water and fairy liquid and then dried out the box I then cut a small piece of a sponge the right size and thickness and put it in the box and then back on the bike so see how it goes on Smile

ok I have just looked on fleabay for a new sub air filter (I have realised that the home made foam idea wasn't going to cut it as it would just break up) but without success, it looks like im going to have to go to a Honda dealer, but strange I thought I would get one on there Neutral

Mine was so horrible today... I couldn't find anything really so I substituted foam for part of an old sock.. it's better than nothing at all
