    That half of an ALDI tank bag. ALDI have these sales that focus on certain markets every month. That is half the tank bag.

    It also converts to backpack, carry case, etc. I'll find out what the actual manufacturer is for you if I can.

    No I just though I would ride it around Naked for a while to see how it went. Works fine. I think it after was after I drowned the bike back in the days when everyone was convinced that's what caused the hard start. It started fine so I took it out for a ride to dry out its bits.

    Changed out the air filter element today for an oiled foam type. Reassembled the bike, put it in the shed.. went to lock the door.. then I saw the bloody rubber plug that goes in on top of the central screw in the filter body.

    Anybody else leave it out?

    Not going to go through all that again just to replace it.

    Will it be a problem?

    Any comments or suggestions or experiences welcome!

    No. I just got busy with other winter projects since this cold spell will not stop!
    Blinged out the Rhino with some 14 inch wheels and mudder tires.
    Which, according to my son, is now "Bad Ass".

    Tested it out on the front lawn with about two feet of old snow. Promply high centered and I noticed
    lawn coming up as I'm trying to get it unstuck. I'll explain that to my wife in the spring.:shog

    Yes I have. I hate it when that happens. I was putting the tools away and noticed
    it sitting on the bench. Did the same "Should I put it back now?" argument in my head
    and voted to leave it out until the next time.

    Unless you run the thing under water and mud above the airbox I can't see it hurting anything.
    It just keeps dirt and moisture from sitting on top of the screw. From what I see over in the
    Show me your bike thread the worst most will get in there is some car wax.:wink:

    If you have the two separate oil/foam filters probably not. It would seem the plug is mostly to prevent water from becoming free standing in the hole and ultimately leaking into the air box.

    while the Aussies and 'Canners are out playing where there is no web.
