126 bis - air box
« on: October 23, 2019, 06:00:59 PM »
Hello everyone

I'm looking for an original or nicely compatible air box to go on top of the carb. I can't find one on a few part sites I've looked at now.

Thanks

Hi Dan, there s a complete air box and carb cover for sale on EBay at the moment....don't know if it's any good, it's in Italy and with the postage Might make it price prohibitive....👍

Thanks ever so much for the heads up!

Strange this is that it looks about 3 times more complex than the one I've got on this car and very different!

Lol.... you're welcome mate, that's the correct "system" for the car....it sounds like you've something a bit different on yours.....wonder if it's had one of those K&N filters on it..anyhow best of luck ....👍

After a bit more research it turns out that is indeed the case. Probably explains why the car gets a bit weaker when warm..

I wouldn't mind a K&N approach if it actually fitted correctly and wasn't right in a hot zone.

Sounds like that's gonna be the more favourable option Dan, I've seen pictures of Bis's with the K&N filters on, would have thought you Gould get one based on providing the carb type...good luck with it Dan, let me know how you get on....👍
