Looks like I had pictures ? I never figured out what one of the holes were in the images. The P.O. may have ground down a bit of the box, because it had been removed / put back in before. Good luck! I remember there being alot of blood and cussing.

Also, hot rod said pull the alternator. x2

How do you get an airbox out of a J model 1100? Anyone who says they can do this without taking the motor out, or destroying it,would make millions. The book says you can, tried it and tried it. Will not come out.

It's been done, but sadly not by me. Hate to admit it, but I was impatient and the hacksaw began calling me.........don't do that! What have you removed?

Im still around, and dont plan on leaving :cheers My father filled my workshop with a bunch of junk so i havent been working on the bike like i should. Ive got a set of Marvic mag wheels and USD's that keep calling to me :drool to get my butt in gear and put them on. For now, the airbox WILL be removed and some BMCs are replacing it. Yoshi carbon heatshield will be going on also, but i need to order that too :banghead

Thanks for the kind words Ken, hope all is well w/ everyone. :cheers

my old man used to do that- when i cleaned up to make room -put in his junk , almost like he was trying to be a hinderance, it caused me to be more determined that he wouldn't stop me from doing what i enjoyed doing, MARVICS would be in my bedroom
so i could make sure their warm and safe at night lol, kind words only go to people that deserve them and thanks, everyone is well -ken

What are those red hoses that are inside the box in the first pic? When I removed my carbs I couldn't remember if I had those in my airbox?

Hey Ragnar, can we ban this smart-ass? :lmao j/k



Thanks for the info, i knew carbs and alternator, but couldnt remeber if u had to take the intake boots and starter off too.
If you ban him you might as well just ban me as well, because that's what was running through my head when I started reading this. I just haven't been on here for a few days, so he beat me to it :biggrin

If i remeber right, he had an aftermarket carb tuning thing on his bike. So you could dial in mix on the fly. Our bikes never came factory with this, which is why you never saw it on yours.
