So I've come to refit one side of the air box and I can't seem to get the big tube back into the box containing the air flow sensor, is there a special tool that is needed to put it back on or a special way of approaching this task? (Below is a picture of the tube in question)

Thanks,
DBRMN

Have you tried to lube the parts with a bit of liquid soap?

Hi mate
it's all about finding the right angle. You need a good swear vocabulary as well. Point seven five is right, add a little
detergent or vasoline but not too much and good luck

Take the tube off the plenum then fit it into the plastic top section then fit the air flow meter into place then put the whole lot back onto the plenum. When the AFM is pushed into place it locks the tube into the air box top section.

+2.

Don't forget to make sure that the worm drive is on the correct way round. I've found that if the drive head (the bit where you put the screwdriver in) is towards the rear of the bike then it's easier to get at with a long thin screwdriver. You should also be able to get a finger or two on the clip to stop it from rotating while you tighten it up.

Well Guys I managed to get it fitted today. I read through all your comments and a friend of mine suggested taking the metal part containing the Air flow sensor out first then fitting the upper part of the air box to the pipe then installing the air flow filter then installing the rest, which I tried and just as my friend was getting some WD40 I got the pipe in. Long story short it all came together and is fully installed. The only issue that I face now is that the two bolts on the inside of the lower section of the air box is only hand tight as I can't get a tool in there.

Looks like you might get more practice with that assembly. Practice makes perfect! Re Fitting the AirBox 212902

Put a pair of wire cutters through the loom where the MAF sub-loom joins the main wiring loom, then put a pair of 4-pin connectors on. Makes reseating the airbox a complete piece of p!ss.

pretty simple really
step one get the right angle for the induction pipe from the afm sorted out
then take it out again ( afm wiring still connected ) and fit the lower section properly to the engine block

then you can tighten the clamp on the top section of the air box , holding the afm in place

when mounting the induction pipe to the plenum ..use a long long screwdriver and make the screw head  for the clamp pointing down and forward  some what  maybe about 45 degrees off vertical towards the rear , which will allow you either to get a short philiips head driver  in there  or alternatively a super long one ..all the way from in front of the radiator bottom  between block and radiator ...then its a really simple process forever more

good luck
