    Xlt1200 plastic intake spacer on gp1200r?

    I need performance benefit to this? I'm piecing together a GP 1200 R and the carbs I used or from an XLT 1200 which have the bolts that are longer for that plastic intake insulator. Should I use it? And will the extra thickness interfere with flame arrestors?

    I just did a GPR with FA & they were old & a PITA to get on had to use a heat gun to soften up the rubber enough to get them on. But anyway not sure on any benefit but space might be real close & the steering cable comes right thru there.

    I upgraded my GPR with the spacer...its a heat insulator. Not a lot of benefit to it, but does help prevent vapor lock and hard starting after heat sinking the motor...i.e. running it and stopping it for several minutes then jumping on it.
