Air box lid fit - fixed, for now!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I recently bought a used TRS 250 RR and so far I've been delighted with the bike. I went through the rear end greasing linkage and swinging arm and was very pleased with how easy it is to work on.

My only minor gripe I found was the airbox lid didn't fit very well. I remember seeing the bike once with the previous owner and noted he was using a ring of pre cut clear vinyl to cover the gap. The problem seemed to be the sides of the lid were lifting up, i.e the lid had flattened. 

Having fitted a clean air filter I didn't fit the lid immediately, instead I put the lid in the vice and gently squeezed it closed a little and left it a week. Today I removed the lid and was delighted to find it now fits perfectly. 

I did a little search and didn't see anything else posted about this, apologies if it's already been discussed to death!

Not sure if this helps but when I had mine I couldn't get it to sit flush, the back wouldn't seat properly and I fussed with it. There was a ridge that made me uneasy. Finally, I tapped it gently with a rubber mallet and it went in and stayed in. No more gap.

I just removed a bit of the edge of the lid with a sharp blade, it appears to be just a tad to big to easily snap into place. Never an issue since.
