Air box question
Thanks to posters who went to the trouble to record how to remove the fuel tank and access the air filter box.
I managed the job with few issues ( O.K. the fuel pipe disconnection was a bit tricky) . When I did get into the air box I noticed a area on the left side that was filled with a coarse grade foam. I am assuming this has some function but it escaped me what it might be. Possibly in some countries it has an anti-pollution role? (Mine is an Australian model)
I fitted a oiled pool filter sock over the snorkel intake tube as a pre filter.
