    Airbox overflow drain plug

    Hey guys,

    Please excuse my ignorance on this one.. but just wondering if anyone can tell me why there is a plug at the end of the overflow drain tube from the airbox? As my airbox filled with fuel after me not realising it, the drain filled up and so the fuel leaked elsewhere, defeating the purpose of the overflow......

    cheers

    I think you may find its there to stop additional air being drawn into the airbox itself though the tube which would affect the air/fuel mixtures.

    The idea is to pull the plug out now and then to allow any oil / fuel or general crap to be released.
