01 600 Air Box Question

I'm rebuilding my carb and in the process I removed the air cleaner air box; but i had trouble doing so and broke something on the bottom underneath the box toward the rear. It looks like a little port of some sort and it has some type of grease clamped to it. The plastic broke around the port and now there's a hole in the air box; can anyone tell me what this is? I cannot find it listed anywhere in the service manual. Can this be effectively glued back in and still function properly? It looks like it could be. BTW what is the function of this thing? Thanks!

Was it just a small piece of rubber clamped to the underside of the airbox? Drain probably. Post a picture if you can.

there is a tube of some sort with what looks like a sticky grease attached to what does look like a drain with a clamp on it as you can see. Is this normal? And if so for what purpose is it??? Thanks!

That is just a low point drain for your airbox. It is probably just dirty. Clean out that little tube and give your airbox a clean and you can reinstall that tube and clamp once you glue the piece that broke off.

Otherwise you will get some water coming in if it is not there. Enjoy.

That's the drain. Don't worry about the broken piece.

Do worry about the fact that it's a rodent entrance hole. Stuff a piece of stainless steel scrubber pad into that hole, and cover the air inlet duct with a piece of hardware cloth, formed to snap over the rubber in duct.

Oh, I made the mistake of leaving my #1 600 in the garden shed this summer. When I went to find out why it wouldn't crank, I found the air box stuffed with eaten acorns.

The reason it wouldn't crank was, of course, the source/pickup coil, (but you know that already...)

Well, if you drive in water deep enough to enter that hole... duh.. .

The little flexible rubber nipple is a pinch drain. J-B Weld will make all correct there.

There is a way of installing that air box so you don't have to bash it in. You set the box in, nose first, on about a 45-degree slant, press down, and rotate to the final position. It's not an intuitive motion, though.

Thanks Keith! Will try the JB if the Gorilla glue I used last night fails! I will try that install; that was why it ended up breaking trying to remove that thing is not easy!
