Re: 1999 Blade 918 RRX Airbox
I have the RRX as well and i done work in this area a few weeks ago. it wasnt hard to change the airfilter in the airbox or the sparkplugs. get a haynes manual and some tools, they will pay for themselves soon enough.
to see the airfilter you take 3 bolts off holding the tank on and 3 or 4 tubes off below the tank (depending if the fuel tap has the extra tube for the vacumn model) and lift the tank off. 9 screws hold the airbox lid on, undo them and lift off, you can remove the filter element. the underside of the airbox has 4 holes on it which push onto the carbs like blade says, and 4 large jubilee type clamps are tightened by screwdriver to form a seal. if they were loose, that would be the hanging off bit. although he prob just meant loose as theres not the room for the airbox to really hang off.
mine was really dirty as it was the original i think (10yrs) when i replaced it and the plugs, i really noticed the difference in acceleration and noise.
good to know i saved myself £130,lol
