    hehe i already tried several things to the nozzle and the airbox but this is the best fix since that part is loose i thought of screwing it will make it fix and wont wobble.

    actually i just saw a screw beside me when i was installing the rubber lips. ��

    Looks like a nice simple fix!

    I've added this thread to our mods & DIY list

    I think others have said they have put tape around the inner pipe to tighten up the fit and that works too.
