What are these holes?

PostAuthor: festerbestertester » Tue Jan 08, 2019 8:34 am

There are two holes on each side of my frame just below where the petrol tank bolts on at the front. Can anyone tell me if they have to be blanked off or what they are for?

I thought they are for mounting crash bars.

Are you talking about the 2 rather large holes that face downward towards the front of the frame near the steering head? If so, these are part of the intake system. The left side connects to the air intake filter and the right side connects to the air injection system.


edit: My mistake. I was referring to an XV1100. I see this question is about an XV535.

The holes are on the side of the frame 4 or 6mm diameter so possibly
for chrashbar. Have blanked them off with rubber grommets.
