    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.....)

    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..

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

    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...
