"MORE BOYLE CUSTOM MOTO QUALITY" OR "THE 'PURPLE PENIS' LOSES SOME GIRTH" . . . . ANOTHER BOX OF THE GOOD STUFF ARRIVED TODAY FROM KIM AT BCM, THE LARGER DIAMETER 'JJ' TUMBLED FINISH AIR CLEANER . . . . ONCE AGAIN, THE DUDE HAS EXCELLED HIMSELF, NOTHING SHORT OF BRILLIANT . . . . DESIGN SIMPLICITY AT ITS OPTIMUM, CLEAN, THIN AND SWEET AS A FUCKING PEACH !!!
I knocked off work a poofteenth early this arvo, couldn't wait to get home and have a fondle and then fit my new 'JJ' air cleaner to the Purple penis, hot off the plane from Kim at BCM. The same level of quality as the original Thinner Pinner I already have put aside for Project Shoveller, every aspect of the thing is executed in immaculate attention to detail, machining, fit, all of it is seamless and bang on the money . . . . I've been wanting to get rid of the old, modified cheapo Zodiac unit ever since it displaced the factory letterbox sized, double-extra ugly thing over a year ago and now the job's done, I couldn't be more stoked, I reckon it looks a treat, simple, clean and purposeful, classic lines and style . . . . Boyle Classic Moto, absofuckinglutely ??
Grabbed the tools and the two BCM Willis Bolts I'd previously purchased and hooked into ripping off the old thing, proceeded to remove the filter body and plate, breather hose, ghastly breather balance pipe, bolts and bracket all in about five minutes . . . . cleaned all the threads on the throttle body and the breather holes in the heads, a dab of Loctite on all the fasteners and attached the backing plate, Kim's bloody gorgeous, hand made Willis bolts were a tight fit but doing it bit by bit before a drop of Loctite went on got the gig done perfectly . . . . then inserted the fine, rear gauze plate followed by the sweet little Unifilter element, the front piece of gauze, popped the circlip in with my thumb, repeated the process on the other one and job's a goodun . . . . Like I said, couldn't be more fucking rapt, the thing sits nice and snug in against the throttle body and virtually under the tank, the wee Willis bolts look totally cool and the entire caper is exactly what I wanted and well beyond all expectations . . . . I love simplicity of design and quality and Kim nails it !!!
