    Default Does anyone reproduce air box funnels? Lost my airbox cover.

    Been working on my 851 and I freaking misplaced my airbox cover. Dunno why it should disappear. Everything else was in the box including the air filter and all the little clips. I did find a cover - and a few isolated snorkels, but the snorkels are $80.00, more than the darn cover, which got me wondering if anyone reproduced them or if something less salty interchanges. I also need the reducers. Thanks for any input!

    Somebody will have a spare, they are either left off or butchered for more airflow.

    Yes this will work as that is exactly what I put on my SP4 as the original tubes were falling apart. Not sure on the size though but the product works............I believe it to be vacuum hose. However I believe the thread was started for the funnels at the front that attach to the front frame and very badly fit to the slots in the front fairing.

    You'll find NO DIFFERENCE if you fit those hoses or leave them off.
    Later 851/888 customer race bikes didn't fit them, the hoses are waaaay too small to actually work in the way that they were intended.
    You'll get just as much performance if you leave them off and run a standard open topped airbox IME.

    Default Replacement cover does not fit either ???

    Thank you all. Good thing I held off one those air funnels. I found a replacement air box cover ( I used part number 24610011A) and either I'm doing something wrong or it does fit. I'm beginning to think it never had a cover and was run open. Does this look right?
