I was taking the air silencer off of my 96 GL Vulcan and got as far as disconnecting the silencer part, but the part that extends through the fender well is one piece. If I disconnect this from the box it'll be sucking in hot engine air....a big no no. Can I just hack the big piece off that is on the wheel side of the fender well or rig something up like pvc and make my own CAI? Also...how in the world to you get the silencer part off without taking the whole front bumper cover off? Sorry if these questions seem stupid...but I couldn't find any info on this so far.
