I just got a 88 ninja that has been sitting for a few years. The original engine was replaced with a new one before it sat due to the person moving out of state. I know the bikes runs because I squirted gas down the carbs and it started.
My problem is, I had to replaced the carbs due to breaking the plastic nipple for the fuel line. They had put K & N filter pods on the bike and i dont want to rejet the new(old) carbs so I want to put the original airbox back in. How in the hell does it fit in between the frame rails. I tried splitting the airbox apart and trying to fit one side in and then the other but that didn't work. Now i'm looking at pulling the rear fender and trying to get it in that way.
I have a book on order to help with other things but I figured I could atleast firgure this out.
Any ideas other then dropping motor.

To install or remove the air box you have to remove the rear bodywork and tire. That is the main reason to use the K&N filter.
Honestly if you get a 0990 K&N filter 111 or 110 main and #40 pilot jets. It will make your life a lot easier.
What ever you do . Remove the covers from the idle screws. That way you can adjust the mixture when you have it all running.
