    Personally I'd take the engine cover off and do a PCV delete :salute:

    Positive Crankcase Ventilation, basically the crankcase vents into the intake to lower emissions which get burnt off in the fuel/air charge that enters the cylinder.

    The reason I say that is because you have to take the engine cover off to run the hoses, go faster bits FTW if it breaks upgrade it :yahoo:

    I bought those clips 2 weeks ago from the dealers and they are about £1 each. Just make sure you ask for the little plastic disc if you dont have 2 of them as these hold the clips in and stop them from dropping out again.

    Sorry Jardo but I personally think it looks neater with the cover on even with the delete. I'd only get rid of my cover if I really tarted up the rocker cover and the surrounding wires and hoses.
