Hi folks. My D14 had a pancake air filter fitted and I am in the process of returning it to original RH side panel and rubber tube. So I have a few questions that I hope someone can answer.

The PO had fitted the filler panel between the two side panels. I had to remove it to fit the rubber tube. It leaves quite a gap through which can be seen the frame tube, battery and spacer tubes. Is this how they're meant to be? I can't see any other filler panels in the parts book.

The parts book shows a wire clip on the side panel end of the rubber tube. Does this fit inside the tube to expand it and make it more secure?

The tube fitting onto the carb was a bit baggy but has pulled up with a hose clip. However I've just been reading stuff on here and someone referred to an adaptor that screws onto the carb that the rubber fits onto. I don't have one and there is nothing shown in the parts book. Should I have one and where can I buy one?

I've ordered an 850 mini filter element that I hope I can adapt to fit.

and yes D14 do not have a centre filler panel
and no adaptor that screws onto the carb

Thanks Mike. Any idea where I can get the wire clip. I've never seen one advertised anywhere.

To be honest you dont really need it the air filter rubber stays in the inner panel hole ok without it
my D14 one went AWL on the garage floor some 4 years ago

Okay thanks Mike. The Mini air filter arrived today and looks like it'll work. The inside diameter is the same as the rubber tube so once it's clamped onto it it'll stop it from moving. I just need to order some threaded rod or long M5 screws so I can fix an ally strip across it to blank off the outer hole and clamp it onto the rubber carb hose flange.Img_2269small.jpgImg_2263small.jpg

How deep is that filter I had a problem with the depth of a car paper filter like that, the cover would not fit properly
so I used a wire Pancake filter which fitted ok and used rubber straps to hold it in place from

It's in the shed so can't measure exactly right now but about 40mm. It'll fit in okay. The pic shows it's below the level of the cover fixing stud. How did you blank off the outer hole Mike?

I used the outer end cover off a Pancake filter
and a rubber strip cut from a inner tube going from the bottom right original clip fitting to a new one opposite it
