new K&N air filter and new frame rear loop for the Honda

Posted on Jul 9, 2013 in Honda FT500 Scrambler, moto! | 0 comments

Believe it or not, last Saturday I lost the air filter on my FT500. It fell out somewhere on the rough dirt road, 40km from home, I never saw it again. Almost bought a new stock one, but I’ve found a bargain on a K&N. Say no more. I was waiting for a long time to throw this big air box out of the way. The only problem was that my carburetor had a 54mm diameter, and this filter was 57. But, quotecorner pharmacy, as someone told me before, one problem is no problem. I cut a rubber band out of a bicycle inner tube, put it on the carb and the filter fit right in.

 

that’s my crankcase breather filter if you ask…

 

my mate Lukas gave me his bent BMX handlebars, I put them into use right away

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the frame is ready, finally I can get on with the seat pan and upholstery

 

The battery is at the same place it use to be. I utilized the lower part of the original basket, had to weld back a broken tab, and used a very stylish leather strap to hold it tight. It really ties the room together, don’t you think?
