    Air Intake Mod Question

    For those of you that have removed your stock front air intake for the Kanaflex or whatever intake mod you have done - did you completely remove the entire 3 piece airbox assembly?

    I know I need to relocate the rectifier and deal with the catch can for the intake. What I am wondering is if the rubber straps are still tight enough to retain the gas tank, or not???? Seems like I would need a shorter strap..

    Some have used a section of pvc pipe to takeup the slack in the tank straps... Ron

    Others have just tied an overhand knot in the strap to take up slack.

    I used a 14" long piece of 4" PVC and it fit just right.
