It's on my radar. I need one like a punch in the face. Problem is; I don't want to thin the heard but add to it. I'll pick one up once the hoopla dies off.. maybe next January.

I have the "Tusk" knock offs, and a pair I made myself. Good gloves / heated grips are nice, but when I get up into the Mnt. snow areas and temps dip into the 20's I slap on the mitts.

Uni-prefilter/Carb vent hoses?

Installed the Uni pre-filter (in place of the snorkel) on the Super Enduro today. Now what do I do with the carb vent hose that ran from the snorkel and into the Air box cover?
