Was told it was frame # 025 had a full titanium exhaust and went for under 700,000 yen which seems low but I guess if Centrepoint started the bidding for this one at $10 k itÔŅĹs about right. Supply is low but so must be demand.

Bit of an update as I have had my YB6ei for a while now. Historic rego was pretty straight forward. Havenít done much riding yet as Iíve been away. What I have done has been remarkable. Corners on rails. Great brakes for 30 year old. FZR 1000 power needs to be wound on but likes to rev.

I got Unifilter to custom make an air filter that finally arrived. Cost $55 plus freight. Seems reasonable for a filter custom made in Australia especially given it is reusable.
I have used Unifilter before and while they are a bit of a pain to clean they have hi air flow and have a good reputation in racing particularly off road.
It is made to filter from the inside out and may also suit YB4, 8, 11, Tuatara, Dieci, Furano and Evo. If youíre interested search for Unifilter and quote part No. CF0591.
However when I was fitting it a small hose came off the air box between the injectors and I havenít been able to see where to reconnect it.

I would really appreciate any help or advice as Iím concerned about what effect it may have on the fuel injection.

Have you looked at the Exploded Spare Parts manual for the bike to see where it locates? It might be just a drain hose or fuel tank expansion/overflow hose or crankcase breather hose that just locates in the airbox at the end of its run

I think it connects to the (APS) Air Pressure sensor from memory which is bolted to the inside of the top frame i would have to go and check but as you now know it not all that easy to see without pulling half the bike apart

I can confirm a hose will go from the air pressure sensor which is bolted to the rail behind the throttle bodies to the silver bayonet fitting the other outlet in the bottom corner is just a drain hose that just drops down on to the engine
