Fuel Customs Intake Install Question

Hey guys, I have an 06 YFZ 450 and installed the Fuel Customs Intake today using the box. I was just wondering if you guys bothered putting a clamp on the filter or not considering how tight it fits. Thank you!

I guarantee you it will vibrate off! Use the clamp!

+2. I haven't seen it happen personally, but I've seen what happens after the fact when a bike gets brought into the shop with a blown top end. Not pretty. Use the clamp.[ThumbsUp]

I want to put the clamp on, but there's not much room for it. Does anyone have a picture of there setup with the airbox?

You'll figure it out with the clamp. DO NOT RIDE IT WITHOUT THE CLAMP!!!! It will wiggle loose and cause engine issues asap. The only analogy I can use for this situation is: You wouldn't become eskimo brothers with Magic Johnson without using protection. Not putting the clamp on is equivelant to trying to give your bike engine HIV.

Ride it like your health insurance deductible has been met!

Yeah I know that haha I just didn't know how you guys put the clamp on. The rubber on the filter is tight to the tube in the box.

Also, the adapter that goes on the carburetor, why is there a tab on it? Is it supposed to stick out?

You need to push the filter through the air box, then tighten the clamp.

If I remember correctly there is a slot on the carb which keeps it lined up correctly.

Is there supposed to be a big gap in between the carb and transition ring like I have in the picture above?
