Air filters

I have just bought a  1996 Triumph Trophy 1200.I was reliably informed that it would need a service.
Well, what a nightmare to get at the air filter box. Even when I eventually accessed it, it looked fairly clean, but I got this far so I changed it for a new Pipercross one.
    I am looking for an old 3 cyl and 4 cyl airbox to play with to try and simplify this opertion so that you don't have to take the bike to pieces when you want to check, change, or even clean the air filter. I have a couple of ideas, keeping the same system, but need a couple of boxes to try it on. I am willing to pay for the postage and a token for your old one. If if works I will be doing an exchange service.

I look forward to hearing from people. :821:

Hi there Honda... Welcome to the forum... Everyone is welcome here but you should note that this forum is dedicated for the 2012 onwards Trophy and Trophy SE. Although there are a few older model owners in here our help might be limited.

You might be better off looking here for help

As Cropbiker says, please stick around.  The wisdom to be gained and shared on a forum is not limited to a particular brand and/or model.
