Rebel 250 air box install

Hey guys, needing some help on getting the stock airbox back into the bike. Can't seem to get it to fit in the bike. Any tips?

Damn, was hoping it would be simple. Thank you for that info though. Any good way of taking it off without a bike stand or lift?

Is it safe to use a car jack?

Very unstable. Your a lot better in the long run just to get a stand for your bike. I've tried to jury rig something like that for my bike and it nearly ended in disaster. 350 pounds can hurt, not to mention possible further damage to the bike. Just not worth it...

You could carefully jack it up, lifting it only by the frame (not the exhaust) and then use blocks of wood, bricks, etc., on either side to support it. Having someone to steady it helps ensure it doesn't fall.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
