    I agree to a point. The brake lines are not a priority, but if I find a set of originals, Iím going to buy them. To a collector, it likely has value.

    Nothing has been cheap for this, but they were less expensive than one would think.

    Major piece, yes. This airbox is still missing the rubber boot gaskets that seal the airbox to the throttle bodies, and the pass through built in fuel lines for the secondary shower injectors.

    The airbox as a case, is complete. I’m waiting to hear back on the fuel lines, apparently a lot of the 5FL R7 specific parts for the EFI, were used in later model Yamaha motorcycles… same part, just a different part number. The rubber base gaskets may be the biggest issue.

    There are places that custom cut gaskets... can you take a scan or measurements and send them off for a custom gasket?

    Once I get the airbox in my possession and can place it on the bike, Iíll be able to see how thick they need to be. Itís more like a rubber boot type gasket, itís part #11 on the diagram.
