I need help removing an airbox out of a 1983 Seca 750. How does that thing come out?
did you remove the starter or motor?
you may need to heat it up so the corners do not crack. also it disconnects from battery box
Why does it need to come out is the question.
Is it effecting your fuel economy?
Does it slow down throttle response through all the gears?
Is there a mouse nest in it? (that can be cleaned out without removal)
As XJ550H pointed out... don't crack, nor crush, kill, destroy the airbox. They can hold ALOT of value.
I know this is one of those I'm putting PODS on cause they are sooooo cool threads ???
Maybe Yamaha designed the airbox to be difficult to remove so owners aren't tempted to convert to pods?
I think that's enough piling-on.
Maybe the air box needs to come out so the frame can be painted. Maybe he's parting-out a bike.
It really helps to drop the front of the engine a bit (remove the upper and lower (front) engine mounting bolts......
