I fixed the mounting issues (super easy), but definitely now have an air cleaner issue.
I am hesitant to cut and grind on the outer air cleaner housing, but I have no choice. There is no room for it any other way.
I hate to do anything that could void any potential warranty if the engine happens to be a lemon.
I did a quick search through the common vendors and nobody seems to sell a replacement cover. I need to do a more extensive search I guess...
