View Full Version : R2 Hawk air cleaner

12-20-2006, 07:29 PM
Is there a part that goes on the rectangular air intake opening
on the chrome air cleaner on a R2 Hawk? There are dimples in
the metal in that area that lead me to believe that a screen or
something like that may have been there originally.
I'm doing some underhood detailing and I might as well make it
right while I'm at it.
Thanks in advance for the information. I really appreciate it!!:)

There isn't a screen covering it but there is a some kind of perforated metal with some kind of cardboard like stuff behind it that lines the inside of the square part. I think maybe the idea was to deaden sound, but I don't know. It is pretty crude looking.
