LEFT AIR CLEANER PLATE VALVE ASSEMBLY

Post by BeeJay » Mon Mar 18, 2019 3:24 am

Greetings All

Just some help or advice on my air valve assembly under the left side cover.
I've noticed it is missing with the pipe attachments there and nothing else?
Is this going to make a huge difference - the bike seems to be running well atm.

Cheers,
BJ

Hello BeeJay,
Long time not hearing from you mate. How's things down under in Oz?

Are you still riding that 1996 XV1100 Special?

Could you attach a picture of what is missing on you AIS system?

Below is some information that may help you.

Here's a link to "Short Takes–Misc. Subjects/Fixes – Virago Tips"
