Air filter housing
« on: July 10, 2018, 07:27:42 AM »

Just shit (that should be "shot" but I'm leaving it  ::)) a K&N in and it was fun taking the tank off like always , especially when it was full :o
Anyway, has anybody modified the air filter housing by maybe chopping the tiny intake off?
With that off it should improve airflow and the filter would still be filtering the air.
Just a thought  ;)

I de-snorkeling it gets enough air. Any more is pointless. Especially in the EFI bikes. The filter in those is bigger than my car.

You can remove the snorkel in the top of the air box, and literally, hear it roar.

If you have a quiet exhaust like stock, or just a touch louder than stock, that intake roar is godlike. Its soooo awesome that it makes regular awesome look lame.

Find out!

If you find that the awesomeness is overwhelming, put the snorkle back on.

TBH I can't be arsed taking the tank off again  :o .
I wanted somebody else to do it that maybe "enjoys" removing the tank , like I don't  ;D
One tip I do have for anyone who hasn't removed a tank before is to hot glue the two rubber bungs to the small steel posts otherwise they WILL come off whilst refitting tank , disappear down the engine somewhere and it WILL take you for ever to find the little bastards  ::)

;D ;D
Yea it's good looking for them whilst your tank is on the floor with petrol pissing out of it  :o
It's even more fun because the bungs are the same color as your engine which adds to the experience of trying to find the little "bastards" .
Your tank can't go back in without those two babies  ;)

How do you like the K&N? Considering swapping one in at my 600 mile service.
