Air Filter Box

Hello all,

The PO did use any air filter so I purchased one aftermarket from AliExpress.. but doesnít fit..
if I press it it comes in but for no way the filter is aligned with the carburetor hole.

I thought that some part were missing so I got the two hose adapters..

Can anyone tell me what is missing here?







Thank you!

Here's a diagram of the air filtering system. https://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oemp...2e/air-cleaner

The filter appears to be correct. Those two boots aren't part of the stock setup. There should be a spring (part #3 in diagram) to hold the filter against the air cleaner tube (#9)

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

What are the off set measurements? Looks like it goes in sideways.
Also wondering if this type of air cleaner element would fit in a Twinstar, replacing the old old foam one.

Those adapters go on the engine side of the carb at the inlet ports. The bolt holes go over the existing studs on the engine, and the rubber part goes on the outlet port of the first gen carburetor. On a Rebel, the inlet adapter between the airbox and the single carb is a slip on rubber part that has a airbox grommet groove that grips the sheetmetal wall of the airbox solidly.

Thank you all, the strange thing is that air filter hole doesnít aligned with carb hole.

My apologies... I saw the diagram and i realized that I was installing the air filter wrong, pushing the metal plate on the back side of air box instead on the top!
Now itís placed correctly!

First problem I see is the rubber ring inside the airbox, is it torn off or just not seated. there should be an even lip all the way around. In the pic you provided it looks like the front side is either torn off or not pulled correctly into the air box. there is a U shaped metal spring that fits into that channel to the right and presses against the filter to push the opening into the rubber ring of the carb's air intake.

I didn't see any mention of the rubber hose that connects the lower nipples, that's for the crankcase breather so fumes get sucked in to be burned, and filtered air goes back into the crankcase.

The rubber ring was in very bad condition and i tried to give the original round shape rubbing with a insulation tape.. that explains why doesn't sit exact..
Also i miss the U metal spring so i need to get one.

At least the PO had in place the rubber hose so i will connect with the air filter.

BTW a big thank you to all of guys who spend time and provide support and help to all newbies here.
