Lowe's or home depot.....its a 3"~2" rubber reducer...and only lowes sells the black pvc...the only piece I could not find in black was the street 90° that I have coming out of the top of that reducer....

No, I run with airbox on....I think I just about have it figured out after changing jetting a couple times this weekend....I came out of my airbox with an inch and a half ninety, then a short piece of inch and a half pipe...then stepped up to two inch.....it needs more air....I think I posted a pic of how I ran out of the airbox...I am about to step down on my jetting to compensate k132 front k135 rear....she runs good with k138f and k142r....and runs real good without airbox lid with a k148f and k152r.....thanx for askin bro...have you ever owned a prarie 700?

Lol...now that I am thinking about it....I would never do that to my motor...thats why you will never see my intakes open....I always stuff blue rags in them while I am working...actually I am pretty o.c.d about my bike....I change fluids after every ride...this bike still has original motor...has never been cracked open....no smoke....and still runs like a scalded dogg!! :)

I didnt make the snorkel smaller, but I did make it longer with a bunch of twists and turns....back to the drawing board...gonna do dual airbox snorkel this time...more air~more fuel=more power...

Thanks Johnny. No Motor mods yet, No snorkel YET, Trying to get it running right first. just rebuild this carb...Ordered a kit of ebay. So it will start (with some encouragment) but doesn't want to rev up all the way sometimes it does when it is in nuetral but while it is driving it won't. Found a good used carb I bought today and should be here soon hopefully. i'm starting to wonder if it is electrical....I may do the snorkel like yours Lol looks good.

Also backfires like crazy when it shuts off...like 1/2 second after it dies
