A little more help - routing of airbox drain tube

Hi guys, amazingly enough, my rear suspension job went smoothly (other than dropping my swingarm three feet onto a cement floor:banghead:). The only thing I'm not sure of is where the drain tube for the airbox is supposed to be routed. Right now I have it between the shock and the swingarm. I can't see any other decent place but it looks like it's going to constantly rub there. I MAY be able to get it on the outside of the swingarm near the chain, but that looks even worse. Any confirmation or correction would be appreciated. PS Felt good to finally get out and ride in nice weather today here in NJ. Went down a dirt road behind Six Flaggs and eyeballed the zebras, giraffes and other exotic animals.:thumbsup:

I shortened mine and routed it to the side above the swingarm.

I never moved mine from stock position, and it is between the shock and the swingarm.

Thanks so much my friends!!:thumbsup:

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
