    @mudnut on your snorkel post earlier (page 13 from memory). Have you done anything to seal the top of the airbox to the carby? I know there's a rubber seal there, but IMO it's a weakpoint and whilst I haven't had issues yet, it's next on my to do list (make up an airbox so I can have a silicone bend clamped to top of the carby).

    Just a large washer and a piece of inner tube.

    The real worry is the pre-heat flap inlet and vacuum diaphragm casing.

    I ran a bead of silicon on the top and used a reducer and plug on the inlet but found it was too restrictive in cold weather with the plug removed.

    I will probably get a full sized aluminium plug machined up and seal it with a fine bead of silicon so it can be removed in winter.

    Think I'm going to do away with the airbox completely and move to a patroldocta style one or similar. Have heard most people block off the vac lines from carby to airbox with no ill effects, anyone know what they do/run/change?

    Dom has posted the vacuum circuit earlier in this thread.

    Ok, all you Dirty thirty owners. Time to check and re-torque the crankshaft pulley bolt!! 152 nm or 112-113 ftlb.

    Take off the stone guard. Unclip the radiator shroud extension piece and it is easily accessible.

    Anyone have an aftermarket Airbox in their rb30? What do you do with the vac lines that feed into the stock one? Plug them? What do they all do?
