    Stock Airbox Air Filter

    I have a 1980 CB750C. The air filter seems to fall down a few minutes after I put it in. Is there something that is supposed to be holding it up? I feel like something is missing on my airbox that holds the filter up.

    A spring clip that goes under the filter to hold it up with a slight amount of tension. Doesn't clip at all, simply slides in and side cover of box holds it in place. Can't believe how much somebody wants for it. The black end is the handle you push it in with. You can buy say a strip of flat steel 1/16" thick at Home Depot and make one up that would work fine.

    Model doesn't matter, every early DOHC regardless of engine size used that same part.
