ZXI 1100 Velocity Stacks or Air Ducts
Just picked up an 03 ZXI 1100 Triple, Upon removing the air box for inspection the velocity stacks, or air ducts, were in several pieces. After removing all debris I called local dealers and they told me they do not stock it. I am planning to order it, but would really like to test run this thing to ensure there is nothing else wrong. Would it be harmful to run it without them in there?

Very likely it WILL cause damage to run it that way! The Constant Velocity carbs (CV) on that model require that the flame arrestor be in place in order to provide the correct vacuum to properly meter the fuel. Without it, it will run uncontrollably lean and possibly seize the engine.
Order the parts and do it right. I just had to replace the tubes on an STX I bought recently. I was surprised at the poor condition they were in.

Or you could get you some '96/'97 ZXI 1100 carbs off eBay and trash the CV's
