I recently purchased the VO2 intake from Vance Hines. This kit cost something like $180. The milled TB adapter is very nice, But it came with cons. One of the bolts would not thread in (bad cut I think) but my biggest disappointment was that the intake comes with no filter cover. (pic attached). What became more annoying is that cover is sold separately for $80ish! For a piece of metal that should have came with the kit, another $80. So instead of going that route, I whipped one up on my 3D printer. I will paint the lettering but first I want to get a few rides in to confirm the cover can hold up against the heat. Simple PLA (the plastic used) does not become soft until 170C or 338F. I don't think the intake of our engines are seeing anything near that. But I'll find out.

That looks cool. I agree that you shouldn’t have heat related problems.
Since you can make our own, I would do one with the text being straight / parallel.
Might like that better than the text on a radius.

Don't like the radius text? I dig it myself. I can alter the cover in any way, I just found this cleaner.
I like the radius text for the SCR, but not for the 950.
But it doesn’t matter what I like. It’s your bike, and that cover is cool.

Gaiters? Am I missing some kind of British humor?
He's referring to your fork boots. They got kinks in them. It's something that drives me nuts and I typically give people grief about it. You need to pinch and pull the kinks out man.
I no longer have to mention it because someone will pick up on it for me! So there you have it. Now go pinch them gators.
