Tslewisz, wash your new aluminum with white vinegar, spray it with self etching black primer, then top coat with semi-gloss black. It will look factory!

When I was putting the subframe back on today, I noticed that I couldn't get the crankcase vent to reach its home in the airbox. I needed a hose several inches longer. WTF? I couldn't see where routing would make any difference...I don't think it was EVER in its home. Anybody else see this? Maybe I'm just an idiot.

I never disconnected my airbox from the hose; just pulled it forward and tied it off so the hose had a nice smooth curve. Unless you cleaned the airbox you should be able to tell from the outside if the hose was connected. If not look inside. You should be able to see residue around the connector. Routing should be dead simple so 'can't help there.

Yeah, that's the thing. (sigh) It's right now, at least.

Mine did that when I tore it apart to replace the clutch spring cups and cam chain. I just figured the rubber shriveled up because I had it torn apart for so long.

You nailed it. Some plastics/rubber compounds are bad about shrinking as they age. Next time mine is off I will see about using a different kind of hose.

You can probably use some kind of heater hose.

That's what I used. The OEM hose had a spring in it to prevent collapsing in the turn to the front so I transferred that over, too.

It was pushing near 60 here today.





Abandoned rail through the valley. Hope no UP/BN people are looking at this thread.
