    ok shipping screwed my order up so i gotta wait until tomorrow. i got the airbox completely off all the panels and have drained the gas tank. im gunna go grab some oil tomrorow give her a oil change and the petcock comes int he mail as well tomorrow so ill be installing that.

    Questions

    my air filter doesnt come in until next week, after i change up the petcock and oil change and give her some fresh gas and re install the airbox can i run her with no air filter just to see if the black smoke is gone? i wont be riding it but i would like to see if the petcock made a change?

    also is the fuel filter as easy as it seems? cut the tube fit clamp to tube and done?

    Unless your air filter is physically damaged, you can just wash it, dry it, oil it and reuse it. You should not run the engine without an air filter.

    You can run it without air filter if bike is just sitting to make sure it runs right.

    You can wash it with dawn dish soap to clean it. Watch you dont tear it, it its looks like the foam is falling apart I'd replace it as it will suck foam particles in if its wore out.

    When you get a new a filter, buy filter oil to coat it, it helps stop small dirt getting in. You can ruin a motor quick with a crappy filter.

    Sorry, I had not seen the picture before responding. You could still use that filter if you make sure to use rim grease to prevent any air bypassing the filter, but I agree that you should just replace it - standard filters are not that expensive.

    ok. canada post sucks number 1 thats what i get for getting the free 30 day prime lmfao

    , i will have to wait until tomrrow to replace petcock and i will also get the fuel filter tomorrow. i got a new oil filter today as well, i havent drained the oil yet or done a oil change yet. im reading im suppose to put in motorcycle 5W-30 SAE OIL. couldnt find any at canadian tire today. is this right?

    1 more question regarding the tubes for the carb. once i get the raptor petcock i have to plug the tube that was originally runing air to the original petcock correct? i also have another im guessing vent tube that is cut on a 45 thats running towards the air box i guess i just leave it where ever? also i seen a little bolt hole on the right side of the airbox that lines up with a part of the frame with a bunch of holes. im guessing this is the secure bolt? i dont think it was on when i got it but it looks like it fits.

    so air box has been cleaned of dirt and garbage including the metal grate that had a litttttle blackish gunk on it. i have reinstalled the airbox. waiting to do oil change and change petlock and we will see how she runs with no air filter on idle for a few minutes. i mainly just want to get rid of the black smoke first off and also see if the new petcock works well.
