Alright, I have a 1999 SSie with the air box mod done to it when I bought it. I want to buy a new/used airbox lid or an entire airbox To cover the front of the air filter.
I have been searching on ebay and found this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1,1&item=4640134910&sspagename=STRK:MEWA:IT
The add says it is a 1999, but my airbox is square with the metal bands and not rounded like this one. Also I have seen adds for pre 1999 airboxes or parts and they look like mine (square).

Did the previous owner of my bike swap out airboxes with the previous generation bike? Is that even possible? Can someone shed some light on this for me?
Thanks

Airboxes

Hello Yellow-Duck,

The round airbox on the first link doesn't look like any SS ie airbox I've ever seen (To my knowledge all are square with the metal clips) and the pre 98 models will likely be different from ours (carbs vs injection) - the one on the 2nd link doesn't look as deep as mine but has the same basic shape.

I got the DP airbox lid with the K&N type filter (the DP kit) last month. Cost me $105 USD new from the dealer. Its cut out at the top but leaves the front 1/4 of the filter covered, provides better rain protection that way I imagine. Sounds great and with the DP ECU it runs much better than STD. I would recommend just pricing the DP lid if you can, or getting a STD lid from a wreckers and cutting to suit. :)
