Makes sense as the box shouldn't be any bigger and the weight increase minimal--will be in touch---now back to the garage.

ps has anyone messed with the Mikuni settings--I've gone up a jet size and raised the needle a notch to get the best from a more open airbox and exhaust--and then had trouble just off idle--the compensation jetting was off and it sometimes stalls--a good friend (who knows the carbs) said the same happens on the BMW F650--interestingly the cure (which seems to work) is to actually weaken the idle mixture slightly--this seems to allow more fuel for the compensation when you crack open the butterfly--strange--but seems to be true.
