Leaky air box?
Posted January 17, 2016 - 06:09 PM
Ok, I oil the everloving shit out of my airfilters. I open it up to see this dust in the airboot. As you can see, I even grease the seal. Don't see dust in the grease. I THINK the clamp between the airbox and air boot is loose, or the connection is leaking. The dust on the upstream side of that connection is dispersed differently than downstream (you can see it if you look, the Allen wrench is pointing at the mating surface)
OR, the dust is leaking through the air filter where the plastic cage know slips through the filter..but that looked clean.
The clamp is in the top right hand corner of the airbox...it's impossible to tighten. It looks like there is no access and the airbox is riveted together. Clamp FEELS tight.
Help? Maybe I can put a ring of grease over the gap?
I just had valves checked, they were perfect. ...This is one ride,since then, maybe 2 hours of riding. Should I be worried?

I'll bet the boot is not on all the way at the back of the carb.,.....

I'm not sure what it is, but have you lifted up the subframe and inspected the rear boot?

I siliconed the outside of the airbox where the boot connects, and switched to the twin air. Will report back after the rainy weather stops. Hopefully this issue is resolved and this thread can be helpful to someone else
