I thought you installed these foam filters without the stock cover? Is that not correct?

If I'm not mistaken, there are two different kinds. The one that goes on top and replaces the snorkel, and the UNI foam filter which goes in place of the OEM in the same fashion with the snorkel.

This particular Uni filter is a direct replacement. Simply remove the paper filter then install the foam filter in the exact configuration. No more to it than that.

Proper canister SAS removal?

I am in the process of putting on my RR twin tanks. All is going fine...

Expecting this I had my dealer pull my canister & SAS system a couple of weeks ago awaiting my RR tanks.
I found when pulling my air intake for tank fitment a sensor (?) not fitted underneath.
Looks like a 1/2" hole for dirt to enter unfiltered.

****Do I need this sensor? Or should I plug the hole? My intake looks pretty free of dust but...
Looks like screws just threaded into plastic?

Pictured is the sensor & the hole where it should be fitted.

How do I proceed with this? Thanks for any info.

Max,

That is your air intake temp sensor. YES, you need it and it should definitely be plugged in and installed in the clean side of your air intake system (some people who run a pod filter have just tied it to the frame though due to necessity only). (2) of those black screws are used to fasten it on. The screws are the same ones that are used to hold the stock front side panel mounts on. I do believe that you removed those for your RR tank install so, you should already have a couple extras to use in place of the ones the dealer took.

Who is your dealer???? Major Oops there. Pulling this from the air intake isn't part of the typical SAS/Cannisterectomy procedure........ (I would like to think that they just forgot to install it but, not with the sensor plugged into the harness like that)

Were you riding it like this while following your buddy on the 530 and eating his dust?
