sense i only got about 40mpg on my last tank of fuel and this tank isnt looking much better (down to last pebble and only have 160 miles on it so far. so i thought id try to check the air filter...... well that could have gone better..... first off i was an idiot when i installed my alarm and mounted it to the gas tank.... and forgot to put a disconnect in the power cable to it...:frown2: ok so i clip the wires and add a weather proof connector and get back to removing the tank... first time doing it so oh what fun it was to get the fuel line off... but i got it ... without braking anything...so then i pull the air filter out.....errr well most of it out..... part of it fell apart and fell back in to the air-box (good thing from years of working in shops i instinctively shoved some paper towels down the intakes first) $hit!!! once i got it all pulled and vacuumed out i noticed the bottom part of the filter was covered in what felt/smelt kind of like drum brake grease?!?! the foam gasket around the out side of the plastic filter framing was all gummy and degraded and fallen apart :(
so i need to try to find a complete air filter (as cheap as possible) or some kind or replacement for both the element(those are cheap) and the foam gasket ..... anyone have any leads?


good news tho the clean side of the air box was still nice and clean looking so i guess the filter couldn't have been that degraded before i moved it ....

the dirty side (side before the filter) on the other paw was a bit dirty.. found a few butterflies and a bee... and some more of that greasy oily looking stuff... i tried to clean it out the best i can without fully pulling out the air box...
