  • R2 Hawk air cleaner

    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.
