Can't sleep so figured I'd look for needed parts. Realized that the hole in my snorkel that's been covered with black tape should be addressed. Might even find some missing ponies?

Thanks for the reply. Looks like you were right. Id heard of the flapper valve but assumed it was in the airbox...not in the snorkel. I also thought it was odd that it wasn't throwing codes without the baro sensor. As the "cover" was held on with electrical tape, I should probably tear it back apart and see what the po did with the vacuum line:) Thanks again!

The vacuum line should go to the left radiator, where a little valve thingy is. The PO on my bike just capped it off there, but the vacuum line runs all the way to the throttle bodies.

For what it's worth, I ran the electrical tape forever on my bike. Much cheaper and lighter than any fancy cover you'll buy, and easier to replace.
