    just cap those off as you would anyway. You should have two threaded holes in the bottom of the adapter plate, one is for the intake air temp sensor and the other for the crankcase breather tube.

    So, I got Speedracer's handmedown spike air cleaner installed. Not too hard, looks good and seems to work well. One question...

    I now have an extra vacuum tube that used to go into the top of the right air cleaner. Red arrow here. I gather that that's commonly blocked off, or the whole vacuum switch is blocked off with plates to reduce backfiring.

    I don't seem to have a backfiring problem, so my question is whether it should be blocked off, or if there's a negative effect of leaving it alone.

    yep that is the hose that gets the marble. If you are installing the coasters ( reed valve block off plates ) all of the hoses, valves etc. that is with that system is removed. if you leave that open and still have the reed valves in i would think that would not be good for the engine. That tube was getting filtered air b/4 you put the spike intake on.

    That's what I thought, I'll get that plugged asap. I actually wasn't clear on which way the air flowed in that system. I meant to put my hand over it this morning to check, but was in a hurry and forgot.

    Thanks.
