My 50v is missing everything but the back plate of the airbox.. I really need to get it covered because it's getting to be that time here in the South Bay where the unpredictable rains loom overhead for days and I'd like to avoid getting caught deadstopped in the rain on my way to work. As far as advice already received, I have been told by friends that a air filter sponge and a piece of nylon will do for keeping pebbles out until I have a real cover for it.
So the problem is that it is nearly impossible to find a nice, wordy explanation of the air box, or a picture that speaks a thousand words, so that I can see what it is I need to get. Here's what I've picked up off of handybikes:
1 x MOTOBECANE AIRBOX CLAMP (F19145) = $3.99
1 x MOTOBECANE AIR FILTER STUD D5MM (F21000) = $3.49
1 x MOTOBECANE AIR FILTER GASKET (F20997) = $0.99
1 x MOTOBECANE AIR FILTER MODEL 40/50 (F20996) = $9.99
I figured it would be cool to have extras even if these aren't the parts I need in total. Handybikes is all sold out of the airbox cover... Does anyone know of any other shops that might have what i need?
