    Airbox Removal

    Does the swingarm need to come off for airbox removal? I would like to keep it as a roller for now. I did get the panel with the screen off, which was a PIA. Iíve searched high and low and the few threads Iíve found seem to suggest the swingarm has to be removed first. Any advice would be appreciated or pictures.

    Iím not doing a hollow or naked mod. Just want to do a complete teardown and cleanup. My bike runs like a champ, but Iím seeing some signs of improper wiring and some stuff thatís tweaked. Nothing major, but now I feel like I have to go over everything. Cheers and thanks.

    It's been a long time ago since I removed everything from my first TW to repaint it. I remembered I removed the airbox but couldn't remember what I removed beforehand. Then I found this old picture and because the airbox is already removed and the TW is not completely torn down yet, I would say I was able to remove the airbox without removing the swingarm. I do remember it was a struggle removing and putting back in the airbox but not horrible.

    Thanks Admiral. Your picture reminded me that I can hang the back of the bike from ceiling supports. Thatíll make everything safer and easier to work with. Iíll keep plugging away. Cheers

    Yep, before the hammer was a thing. No wait, it wasn't that long ago. Or was it? I can't remember. Is not being able to remember mean it was a long time ago or...I forgot what I was thinking. In case I haven't mentioned it, yep, before the hammer was a thing. What was the question? Attachment 142633

    Also - anyone know what this is, was, or should be? Looks to be wrapped with electrical tape and not exactly factory fresh. It exits the wiring loom above the CDI and terminates there. Two wires - white on blue and black on blue. Cheers

    If you have a wiring diagram for your bike, you should be able to trace it.

    Has anything been disabled such as the kickstand safety? Has the CDI or the coil been replaced? Just throwing stuff out there...??

    It is a dummy or dead end. Ours is mounted in the same place when zip tied to the frame.

    Thanks Admiral. If I jump these wires, will it regrow the kickstarter that they stole from us?

    Seriously though, could this be used to power an accessory? Iím clueless about wiring. I have a nice multimeter, but havenít taken the time to learn how to use it yet.

    Like LT said, I should really study the wiring diagram. Cheers

    Grow a kick starter, that is funny but I wish it were true. Might cost less than finding one or putting one together from individual parts. Quicker too!

    I wonder if the wiring harness is common for multiple motorcycles and this dead end is something else on another one. No idea if it could be used as a power source and all I've done is looked at it. It reminds me of an appendix in our bodies. It's there but basically useless. My pictures are from last night because it was just killing me not knowing if my TW's had the same thing.
