god its good to know i wasn't the only one whos JBR intake didn't fit right, also i rigged up my own catch can setup for the valvecover breather. however i didn't' break the connectors so i was able to re-use them.

You can buy those connectors for not too much money, but I dont know what they are called, either way they are ubiquitous so if you can find out what they are called they should be easy to get.

What I did was warm up the hard plastic hose and pull at off the connectors, then I found some rubber hose that fit over the connectors and used brass reducers to get down to the size needed for the catch can, i put metal clamps on all the connections.

I'm pretty sure it was 5/16" ID hose that fit over the conenctors but i could be wrong.
Thanks for the info. Going to run it a bit and see if any oil shows up in intake.
I'll have to see if I can find the connectors in the meantime.

Yeah you should be fine for a while honestly, but it’s nice to have the right connectors.

This is how I kept my ST2 seat from sliding when cornering, just a hose clamp on the outer sides of the existing seat clamps.

Soo, before and after Headlight Armor film install. The crack appearance didn't sand out. Hopefully the film will prolong life.

Like the turning HIDs, but not enough to replace them at ~$1000 apiece. May eventually go aftermarket halogen with LED retrofits.

Before:

After:
l believe I got the spot on top of drivers headlight a little too warm, with some air bubbles.
