    Well on my last fitment did a new technique! I fitted the two central rubbers into the air-box and then folded the lips bike that fit on the carb's. I managed to squirrel the Air-box into place and wriggle the crankcase breather on by careful use of a screw driver! It is difficult to see in the photo but I noticed the boots either have a number 1 or 2 moulded in them! Of course two fit one way Cylinder 1 & 2 and two fit the other way cylinder 3 & 4, being turned 180 degrees to be upside down to the first pair to get the angle right from Air-box to the carburettor. Even though these boots are relatively new, I put them in boiling water with washing up liquid into soften them further for flexibility. This operation is only possible with good condition boots which are still flexible. 20200118_120803.jpg 20200118_121459.jpg 20200118_121637.jpg

    Additionally not shown, I spay the boots with silicon to protect them n' make them slippery as I put/ease wriggle the Air-box back in!

    I always use silicone oil or grease on any rubber that's not silicone based.
