The first time we checked the valve clearance on Paul's 950SE, we pulled the carbs off and what looked like a handful of trail fell down the intakes onto the valves. The horror. Like helplessly watching your puppy run into traffic. No fun to clean out either, and you never quite know if you got it all.
We decided to create a product that would stop that from happening. Our intake covers can be snapped into place just as you lift the carbs off the intakes. This stops crap that's collected under the carbs, on nearby hoses, wires, etc. from falling in as you wriggle the carbs all the way out. Not to mention keeping flotsam out while you're doing valve clearance checks and cleaning carbs.
Ships as a pair.
