center post in B4 airbox

Can anyone weigh in on whether the tip of this center post should have a hole in it, or if I should be plugging it up with something since it goes into the airbox? Or maybe there's supposed to be an additional screw there holding the two airbox halves together?

I opened up my airbox to clean up after apparently over oiling my MWR filter a couple months ago. This is the first time I've cracked it open, as opposed to just pulling the filter out the bottom. I noticed this hole at the tip of the post--which I imagine is a guide for refitting the two halves of the airbox back together

thanks

The parts diagram does not show a screw there. I also wouldn't worry about it as it inserts into a receiving hole and really has no air flow or communication with the intake stream.

What he said.... That molded post is not hollow. It needs nothing in the hole in the tip. I think it is just a support for the weight of the ECU above it.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

It is on the old 750s...which is what he has. 910R is same as your 1090. PITA.

that molded post is hollow on mine, with a hole in the tip (from who knows what), it's an open channel from beneath my ECU into the air box behind the air filter

You are saying it is an open passageway for unfiltered air to enter the engine? If so then someone somewhere has modified the original part for some reason. Plug it with some RTV and ride on !!
