  • Air box bolt broken

    Working on my recently acquired '03 RoadStar and noticed the K&N triangular cleaner wasn't lining up with the cover or the airbag. On removal I found the "nut" for lack of a better term was epoxied into the airbox stem where the bolt from the cover secures it. I re-epoxied the nut for now but does anyone have an opinion on the snorkel type air cleaners or should I look for an intact oem airbox? Was thinking of drilling through and using a long bolt to secure but we'll see how the current fix responds...

          I have that part of that air box. If you want it, I'll let it go for $20.00 you pay the ride.

              Same thing on mine when I got it; bloody great big wood screw holding the outer cover on and only just. I turned up a knurled sleeve with 6mm thread, glued the sleeve in place-and ran an Allen bolt through and it works fine till I get something else..

                  Who does stuff like that? Just spend an afternoon perusing FaceBook or YouTube and I'm sure you can find many. (no offense to the guys here that participate on FB/YT as there are some good ones. Just have to sift through the chaff.....)
