Sealing up the airbox

PostPost by: Ganzdachhaus » Thu May 25, 2023 6:50 pm

I have one of the S1/S2 style single bolt Airbox's on my preairflow FHC. No idea if it's original or not, I'd lean towards not, but it could have just been nicely refurbished. Either way, it had large gaps at both the font & back with any of the usual airbox cover edging I could find. Looks like Kelvedon offers something with more meat on it, but it hasn't been in stock for a while. Likewise, I found a few good recomendations here, but I couldn't find quite the right parts locally.

So, here's one more option. Should be useful for any EU folks, https://www.kantenschutzprofi.shop/p/do ... ich-1-3-mm . Cheap, just under 1m fit the airbox cover perfectly, & with just a small bit of fiddling my airbox is sealed up perfectly and it even looks "correct" when installed.
Hope this maybe helps someone else someday.

Thank you for that suggestion. I am having a S1/S2 airbox made at present and this was going to be my next appeal for help!
