Can't face the prospect of yet again removing and replacing the airbox on my '78 GS1000. That has to be the worst task in motorcycle maintenance. I am considering installing re usable foam pod air filters - one for each of the 4 mikunis. The brand I am looking at now is amsoil, they are not specific to motorcyles but look like the K&Ns and are less than half the price of K&Ns.
What do you think, is there a risk here. SHOULD I DO IT???
thats what my bike had on them when I got it, they kept falling off, and also the foam breaks down in weather situations, both my mechanic and I agree stick with the airbox, plus your carbs wiull run more equal that way. hell I even went out and bought a new airbox.
Last time for carb work. This time I have to replace the cam chain. The auto adjuster has reached its limit. I suspect I also have a little bizarre problem. On my last trip a moth flew into my gas tank as I was filling it. I couldn't get it out and I think a good part of it made it through the fuel pump and some into #3 carb plugging a jet. Time to clean out pump and carbs.
Hopefully this will be the last time for a few years.
