  1. Do the airbox tubes shrink over time?

    Africa Twin
    Hi, do the airbox tubes that fit onto the carbs shrink over time? When I took the airbox off during a recent service it was nigh on impossible to get the collars back over the carbs - it was like they were about 1/4 inch too short.... Can they be restored or do I need new ones?
