This goodie came in today so I put it on. Again, a pretty simple install.
I read some people are concerned with size of aftermarket intakes, this one frees up some room for those if us who bang our knees on that crap ass corner. At least for me it will work out well.
Take a look. I tried to take the pic from the same spot.

The stock air box is pretty restrictive of course. I found it interesting that the air actually comes in from the middle on the bottom of the back side. I originally thought there was a slit on the cover for air, but it was just cosmetic.

Lastly pics of the kit I got. Instructions are pretty straight forward. I have the Cobra PowrPro fuel controller and a cobra slip on coming later this week or early next week that I’ll install.

Wow that intake looks way better than the stock system, love the front facing vents. Do you notice any difference in sound/performance when accelerating?

Are you happy with this air filter, gallam03? How much smaller than the stock one is it? Does it hit your knee?
Thanks
I don’t remember how much smaller it is. I already threw out the stock one but my knee doesn’t hit anymore unless I really slam the brakes.

Well...definitely more sound. Performance maybe a little?? I have a cobra power pro on it as well as a cobra exhaust. And I did it all at once but o have never bothered to dyno it or anything.

Seriously? You threw out the stock intake?
Man I can't throw out anything "motorcycle".
I'm a little jealous right now.

hahaha...yeah...I used to keep the stock parts, and sometimes sell them but I don't have enough room to justify keeping all my stock parts.

Any chance you could post a measurement of the depth on your Cobra air cleaner? I went with a velocity stack style but it still protrudes 3.75" from the face of the throttle body to the face of the velocity stack. Thanks. jevers[/QUOTE]

As far as how much it sticks out it’s Roughly the same.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, that's pretty much the case when I was shopping for a better looking/breathing air cleaner. Nothing that I found was really any narrower. I have learned to adapt to the right leg out riding style. Thanks again! jevers

I added a cobra PowrPro. What I mean by bolt on is no modifications necessary to install.
As far as tuning...here is the general rule of thumb I personally follow
1 Slip on, not tuner or tune needed
2 Air intake to high flow, tuner or tune needed
3 Both air intake and slip on or full exhaust tuner or tune needed

Not everyone agrees with the first one...

I think the generally accepted rule is that you can have one or the other (i.e. exhaust OR air intake) without modifying the fuelling, but you’re going to need to do something if you modify both.

I think it really depends on who you talk to...I've heard it both ways...I've just been told more often than to that if you're increasing the air coming in, you have to increase the fuel or you're going to run even leaner than factory. BUT to each his own...do what you feel is best, or ask your own mechanic what they think you should do.
