If its a breather then best to leave it as it is-you could remove it and clean it thoroughly with parafin-some wire with a small piece or rag attached, make sure its bone dry inside before fitting it back, post some pics of it Kato

Have a gander in the service manual for pipe connections if not sure. I wouldnt put a filter in where there shouldnt be one. If youve not got a copy of the manual, shout up and Ill mail it to you.

Is the battery turning the bike over?

here is a link to some drag bars (they do them in different colours)Click me

and here are the cheapest risers that will be the right size, so the controlls clear the tank

you could get away with 5 inch risers but i couldnt find any as cheep Click me

then all you will need is a couple of 3 inch 12mm bolts, a 12mm drill bit, and a couple of big washers with 12mm holes

the bore in the bush that hold the original risers are 10mm but all aftermarket ones are 12mm :blink: so just drill out the hole, cut the bolts to size then put the washer on b4 the riser to hold it all in place. takes about 30min to do it all B) im going to post a topic in customs titled xvs bobber 125 pictures, so you can have a look at what they look like (iv got 4.5 inch risers and the choke lever hits the tank, but im removing it so it dont matter to me)
