    Veccy Airbox

    Managed to get my hands on another bargain recently. Guy on Zlet.co.uk was selling his 2.2 airbox with hoses so snapped em up.

    Went to fit it today but realised i needed a crankcase breather filter so ordered one from eBay, took original hoses off to have a ganders at what was needed to be done. After taking the airbox lid off to fit the brand new Courtenay filter i find a brand new K&N filter already fitted and what is underneath but a crankcase filter He had run a bit of samco hose from the breather into the bottom of the airbox, i figured it was there for some other reason .
    After taking the crossover pipe off i decided the rocker cover isnt in great shape paint wise so gonna get another one and paint it but typically i'm skint at the mo so it'll have to wait a few weeks. Also the crossover pipe was rubbing on the plug cover and i dont want my new VXR cover scratched just yet.

    Anyways, got all this for £45


    Now my next 2 questions, are the Z20LET and X20XEV rocker covers the same and anyone who has done this mod, what wire did you use to extend the cabling for the AMM?

    Good find.... I bought all the above gear seperate and cost me almost double what you have paid . And you don't have to worry about lots of cutting and fitting.. . I was unaware of the crank breather filter needed to be re-positioned as well, what size do you have? (I have seen some for 11 squid but the sizes are 13/16 & 19mm). Advise would be welcome, along with the original question of the which wire to use when moving the AAM...

    Apologies in advance for slight hi-jack.....but u can get crankcase breathers for as little as a couple of squid on flea bay - dunno what the quality is like but Ive just ordered one myself. cant really go wrong for what is a simple piece of cotton gauze and for a couple of quid.
