Any tips/tricks for reconnecting crankcase hose to bottom of air box

Postby ecarmichael » Thu Oct 06, 2016 9:31 pm



good evening sports fans,

Replaced pull throttle cable on my 92 Aspencade today. Haven't figure out how to get the hose reconnected to the top right corner of the air box. Hose mates from the underneath side.

Any suggestions?

I must say I was a little surprised at how much "stuff" I had to move/get out of the way to get to the carburator end of the thottle cable.

It's quicker to grab it with some long needle nose and just horse it up on to the fitting.
