Hey!

Long time no visit!!

Bringing my Pig out of Mothballs, I've put 120,000m on the C14 and want to give her some rest, not that she needs it. 

So, I've brought the XR into the house and pulled the airbox out. 

Drilled out the rivets on top of the box and pulled out the doohickey. Is everyone also removing the raised edge from the top of the box?

She's gonna be street biased with Dave's carb mod, K&N filter, FMF head pipe and Q4.

I never removed the edge on mine. seems like it wouldn't make that big of a difference.

 

And IMO I would go with the UNI foam filter instead. Cheaper and from the grape vine they breathe a bit better.

My motos are my family.  ; )

The Plastic at the top of the air box to which I am pointing, remove it?

Right on, BRAAAP.

Well, I've got a K&N in hand so I'll go with that for a bit.

If you ever blow it up I'd also recommend a high comp piston and a bit bigger bore. It realllyyyy wakes the ol pigs up :ride:

There is minimal room for airflow under the seat. Trim the lip down only half way so water can't just run into the opening. On the bottom of the seat , in front of the air intake , there is a rib that runs across , cut the rib off completely.

Cut that crap off the bottom of the seat!  :thumbsup:

BRAAAP, if I blow her up that would be the next step.  Hell, might be the next step if I don't blow it up!!  

Right I'm now crossing fingers for a carb clean, rejet, plus parts install with a fresh battery to wake the Piggy and I get that big ol' floppy front fender leading the way again!  :ride:
