Just an update:
The angles are off just a bit. I'm going to try and open up the air box hole a bit and see if that works. If not, cut the hole out and fab something up.
Has anyone has installed a 650 air box into a 600? Just wondering if they're even close to the same size. I know the sub frames are different, but maybe it might work?

I put my old air box boot back on. I haven't given up yet. Just wanted to ride as I am a new rider. I will try to figure something out later on. I'm in Arizona, so it's pretty hot right now. Also, waiting to get insurance. I want to say thanks to everyone that replied, especially Tom. I will keep you guys posted on progress when I get around to the modification.
Thanks again, Tim

I did some measurements and they're close. I think I'm going to order the part and give it a try. Hopefully it works.
Thanks, Tim

cut it down and one end is perfect fit over carb inlet and the other is an interferance fit to the airbox, i can also clide a bit of 50mm pvc in the airbox end to stop it shrinking
