    Custom seats and pads

    I can highly recommend a Skwoosh gel pad. The pad fits perfectly, performs excellently regarding comfort and it is very well made: Here is the link to the one I bought/use:

    OEM Air Filter Replacement Anomaly

    Were the seals visually identified easily or were they deeply embedded so that you had to kind of probe them to confirm?

    OEM Air Filter Replacement Anomaly

    Looks like the reason rubber tubing/seal is being used is because the air filter is a custom piece that is attached to a metal backing plate and on that metal backing plate there are no ribs to allow it to "sit" securely in the grooves of the upper and lower halves of the air box.

    Yesterday with some help from a friend I finally got around to replacing the air filter on my '13 S10. I bought the bike used in '18 with a smidge under 7K miles on the clock. It now has 16K+. I am pretty sure the P/O never replaced the air filter. I ordered the OEM air filter from my go-to...
