The only reason I can see to do that is if you are removing the airbox and going with a totally different air intake system.

NO! Unless of course you like the idea of an oily film mess around your new "breather". I understand that the hoses are a pain to install but they are there for a reason. This reminds me that I have to replace mine with new hose and I want to try putting some kind of an elbow into the air box itself to make this easier. I have been experimenting with a product called Plastex that is really the best thing I have found to repair plastic. If I can find a plastic elbow I am going to cut out the straight nipple and replace it. That should make it easier to install the hose I think. Hmmmmmm........................! Fortunately I have spare air boxes if I mess it up. :roll:
