FBH intake silencer warning

Performed the annual ritual of putting a fresh SIM in my Danhag FBH controller today, then fired it all up.

Let it running for 20 minutes and noticed the odd puff of really acrid smoke so took a quick look and found this:





Yeah, that used to be the intake silencer. The clip has broken at some point and it was melted to the exhaust.

One to add to the under'-bonnet checks Thumbs Up

Do you actually need it? I'm not sure but I think my D4 hasn't got one. The fbh is a fair bit noisier on the D4.

Also check the bundle of black (ground) wires under the FBH exhaust, they'd come loose on mine and touched the FBH exhaust
