Snorkel Anybody?

I have found just about all of the parts that I need to finish my '85 K100LT with one exception. I cannot find the rubber piece (snorkel) which fits between the air intake horn and the grill in the radiator cover. It does not appear to exist in any of the fiche drawings.
One of my local dealers tried but came to the same conclusion.
Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks for the link WayneDW but it just takes you to Max's version of the same fische drawings that we have been searching through.
In which drawing did you find it?
It does not show where any of us would expect.
It is not in the drawing which shows the intake horn or in the drawing which shows the radiator trim. (Kind of crazy as the rubber snorkel goes between these.)
My local dealer special ordered a part shown in the Casing Upper Part/Headlight drawing but it was not correct.

Thanks for the help.

Maybe we aren't talking about the same part. If you type in the part number I suggested it should take you straight to the correct picture.

Let's try this link:

air intake pics

Edit: Yes, that one works. Isn't that what you are looking for? By the way, according to these, the K100LT didn't come out until July of 1986??

We are getting closer to being on the same page.
I need the rubber part which goes between the air intake horn and the radiator grill.
My original rubber between the air horn and air cleaner box is good.

Man, I need more coffee.
I have an RT not an LT.
According to RealOEM, (using my VIN) my bike is from build 513 built in late '84
Sorry for the goosechase.

I've messed with a lot of K bikes and I've never seen any gasket between the snorkel and radiator grill - in real life or on the parts diagrams. I think you're chasing a part that never existed - and it wouldn't matter if it were missing even if it did exist.

Oh, it exists. I still have what is left of the original attached to my radiator cover.
I will try to post a photo later tonight.

It might be something someone added. Either way it's not necessary so personally I wouldn't worry about it.,
