newbie from new hampshire, first bike...

Post  redneckonastreetbike on Sat May 09, 2015 4:11 am

so i bought my first bike a couple weeks ago... it's a 96 gsf600s, roughly 46k on it... was told the carbs needed to be rebuilt... no big deal... seat also needs to be recovered... also, no big deal... got an awesome deal on the bike so i don't mind putting a little bit of time and money into it... this is my first bike that's not a mountain bike with an 80cc motor on it lol...
the issue that i'm running into at the moment is finding the size of the air intake side of the carbs... i'm planning to eliminate the air box and install 4 k+m air filters to let it breath better... the bike is currently about 45-50 miles away at my buddy's house so i can't just throw a caliper on it to measure... anyone know?
thanks in advance...

Don't expect a quick reply redneck, I've introduced myself nearly two weeks ago and still waiting for a welcome.

my advise is keep the STD air box , if you change to those K&N filters you need to re set the carbs , re jet , i wouldnt do it

Samcro, I've noticed that you have got an avitar. How do you obtain one?

Don't worry about it Samcro, just figured it out myself.
