K carbs on an A + A airbox??
« on: December 22, 2018, 01:55:49 am »
Hi all..hoping someone can put me out of my misery.

I put some round top carbs on my A years ago.

I was using ram air filters over the rubber stacks.

Lately I've had a lot of trouble with the carbs,  though it has run pretty good.

I'd now like to use an airbox before trying again to tune carbs.. The K box will  not fit,  I tried.

No space with the torque converter to get under neath to do wing bolts.

So my question... is will an A airbox fit the k carb?rubbers same, enough space?



I won't bore you with details,  but I want

K box is VERY doable. But yes, tight.

I’ve removed every pod/sock filter every previous owner has ever installed on any bike i bought.

They’re not worth the time and headache.
