R1 bike carbs on zetec pics.Help needed..

Hi I have atached a pic of my R1 bike carbs with Bogg Brothers manifold and set up on my zetec.....

Question Has anybody got pics of an R1 air box still atached if you can..I need help with the pipes...There is 2 pipes that I beleive need to be fed by the airbox so that it will open the slides..?? Bogg Bro's said just to leave them to the atmosphere or cap them with a couple of vent filters.But im not convinced...
Help please I need to know where all the pipes run?? I have a fair idea but im not 100% ??Scan of haynes/workshop manual would be greatfully appreciated...

I did the cam cover my self..Shot blasted it then sprayed it up ..looks good...cost a tenner
The manifold is 155+vat

The quality is ok but the mounting holes where a bit rough and they needed some work to fit(2 of them) but on the whole im pleased ... Air filter is the dear bit !!!!!

You can look forward to those bike carbs , I put mine on last week and although they are not set correctly yet , they are still bloody good.

Opens up the top end frighteningly , it will all end in tears or a rev limiter!!

Hey, nice engine

I've also wondered about the various vent pipes which stick out of the R1 carbs.....
