K8 Hayabusa Tab and Intake Tube?

Okay, so I broke the plastic tab that is on the right side of center of the triple-tree and plugs right into the frame. The center piece is still stuck in the frame. The right-side intake tube looks as if it goes right behind the location of the tab. Is there a chance of the left-over piece of the tab to be sucked into the intake tube? Can I just push the rest of the insert through the hole in the frame when I purchase a replacement?

I really want to know if it is okay to push the broken pieces of plastic through the frame. So, when I purchase the new tab, I can just plug it in. I would not think the hole in the frame would go directly to the intake-tube, but I just want confirmation.

Perhaps, it is only because you have the "Special Edition" ZX-14.

no the hole is just inthe frame
will not go in to the intake tube , the tube runs threw the frame!

most likely it will just go in to the frame itself no big deal or go threw and fall out some place

i would not bother buying the suzuki push pins eather just a wast of money , got to hilo or autozone and get some the same size 6mm or what ever fits

Lift up the gas tank as if you would be getting the air cleaner. This will give you a better Idea of how the air intake duct work runs.

This plug has nothing to do with it.

Why not try to pull the pieces out with needle nose pliers.

I already attempted that. The plastic is just breaking into tiny pieces. It will be easier for me to push it through.

Yeah, I did not have the problem getting the one on the left-side fairing off, or the two right below the radiator. This one, I tried to be gentle, but I actually pushed the tip of a screwdriver through the center, and the head snapped off.

Okay, as I was looking for my key, I found this bracket hanging in the right-side fairing where the fan is located. The bracket was hanging above that position. Does anyone know where this bracket belongs?

that looks like it holds the throttle or brake cables..not sure.. looks like one on the gixxer, maybe it goes on the frame close to where the bars are. did the bolt just rattle loose? was that thing bouncing around inside there?

I know the Hayabusa is an awesome bike, but I had no idea that Suzuki was so "forward thinking" in developing such a monster.

If they would have only added a side-car, it would be perfect.

The bolt hole lines up with the front bolt hole in the air box. The clip part points down and holds throttle cables to the throttle side. Push the air box towards the forks to get the holes in the clip and airbox to line up with the hole in the frame.
