Default Re: Motorcycle Thread

Alright, need some cutting and bolting advice..

I've damn near got my bike reassembled, only things left now are to put the air filter box thing back in and the gas tank, put fluids in and fire it up..

Having an issue with the air filter box.. it's this big bulky piece of shit that is a serious Mother fucker to install.. I have dual carbs and (not sure if this is how all dual carb bikes are or if Honda did this cause they're assholes..), the intakes on them are 90* off (one points upwards towards the riders' crotch, the other points upwards towards the top of the forks..) so you have to put this giant box between the top frame rails as crooked as you can, then twist it into place so the rubber boots fully seat on both carb intakes..

serious headache inducer.

My roommate recommended just going aftermarket, but it seems like every aftermarket air filter I find is designed for single carb bikes whose intakes point out the right side of the bike..

What I'm thinking about now is maybe just making some bullshit out of flexible (sturdy) hose and PVC or something..

any thoughts?
