XT600 1998 Intake

Recommended Posts

Hi! I ordered intake manifolds for xt600 1998, 3tb. I Got different which I had. Original intake has black airbox connected to intake manifolds and I got manifolds without connections to air box. Question is, what is this air box? Can I live without it? Why they add this air box to 1998-1999 models?

thanks!

The airbox is the [usually plastic] housing that contains the airfilter. Typically it'll have an access panel to get to the filter or can be separated to get to the filter. It has two orifices [oo-er] one that lets free air in and one that connects to the carburettor or throttle body.

 

edit: Hang on the manifold shouldnt connect directly to the airbox. there should be a carb in between.

From engine: manifolds, then twin carbs, then tubes, then airbox.

 No. I know airfiltter box. This box (size of cigarette box) is connected to intake manifolds. Why? Can I forget it and put intakes without that box?

That part is number 8 on previous message attach. Please, take a look, number 8

oh yeah, looks like an intake resonance box or balancer.

I'd try running it with the connectors blocked off. If that doesnt work well maybe a link pipe?

You could make something to imitate it.
