just try blowing some air through it when apart.
Heres the one I got...$22.71 free shipping

looks like the cheap $19.99 at DCC might be just one sided shut off...but not absolutely sure about that.
the $26 dollar one might be same as mine.

Trek97- Tested the disconnect and it closes on both ends. Thanks for the heads up before I got things all hooked up.

I cut the front fender down today and welded up a crack on the side of it. I think the length is just right. Sending it off to powder coat along with the mufflers whenever I can rustle up the funds to pay for it.

Cool. Looking forward to pics of the fender on the bike. How much did you cut it?

Honestly, i didn't measure. Just went by what looked good. It was somewhere around 4-5 inches on each end.

All that is left to do is get blinkers blinking. I have a new flasher and tried the old one and nothing! Stumped right now on that one. High beam is hooked up but cannot get low beam connected. Brake light wont come on but tail light will. Might be a faulty brake light switch. All fun stuff.

Front fender is now painted. Still need to figure out how to route and keep the speedo and front brake cable back away from the side of the tire. Muffler will be going on soon. Was going to get it powder coated black but have run out of funds. Will have to wait. Need to trim tabs on side covers to get them to pop into the new rubber grommets.

Re: 73 CL350 project...DONE!

Well, this wasn't the most detailed build thread but, for what it's worth. The bike is done. It wont start up yet (I believe it is a bad coil) but all the cosmetic stuff is done. I have another set of wheels that will be getting powdercoated black here in the future that will be going on it.

I think it turned out pretty good. First couple of pics is what it looked like the day I brought it home.

......and the finished bike.

The seat is the origional pan, just shaved down and reupholstered. Dont mind the fork seal dust covers. They wont stay down. Have replacements but havn't put them on yet.

Nice bike.

I have become the Master of the Coil.  I have 3 or 4 extra at any given moment.  Last weekend I went out for a practice session and then the bike wouldn't start the next time. 10minutes later and it had a new coil and I was riding.

Like those bars, are they from DCC? Bike looks sharp. Great job.
