Ol'crazy Posted September 1, 2020 Share Posted September 1, 2020 (edited) After reading some posts in wich the removing the snorkel is recommended, I have do it during a couple of days. My opinion is that the acceleration from idle is smoother. Probably the design of the air filter box and the snorkel limits the breathing capacity of the engine. I don't know if this is due to reduce emmisions or just a bad design. But the problem with that "solution", removing the snorkel, is not a great idea, saddly. Today I wash the bike in a petrol station and before starting the engine I decide to take a look to the air filter box. And the result of that inspection is in the first pic. After drying it and returning home, I reinstalled the snorkel, but I have cutted 4,1 cm (about 1,6 in) of the tube who enters in the box, trying to facilitate the engine to get air, and in the hope that the air filter will be usefull in his entire surface, not just in the bottom, where is visible the great majority of the dirt. The best solution could be to buy a snorkel with a bigger diameter, and making the hole of the box bigger too. I hope this was useful. Sorry by my english.
