    I like that way that all came out to and i love the way the the air box is cut i would concider in doing this but my thing is i usually ride all year unless im lazy or something but with this mod what are the chances of the water coming into the bike now cause if its open that much and i ride in the rain or something then how does this keep the air box and engin safe from the water? I know there is a filter but well that will get wet ha!!

    I'm serious when I say, "that's pretty sweet!" It think it looks like something NASA would build though...

    Going to swing by NAPA or Autozone and see what they got on the cheap.
    I guess I'm at stage 2! Funny the "patent pending" part. That stuff has been around for ages! It's like trying to patent something you cover with duct tape??? LOL

    There's few type of heatshield. The gray stuff weight a ton but do the same job. The gold stuff is what most of people in racing use... it's light. I ordered 2ft x 2ft and I had just enough. I have a little piece left for the rubber part over the valve cover. Hope it's going to stick good?

    He charges $300.00 for a stage 2. I spend $70.00 with shipping and it took me about 1 hr... just saying.

    Was thinking the same thing (NASA).

    You know the air box is cooler but not the air being pulled in. And of course the air does not sit long enough to be cooled down because the inside of the air box is cooler.
    Heat soak is a tough thing to deal with.

    Take the IAT sensor out of the air box plug the hole and put the IAT sensor somewhere cooler, ECU then fuels for cooler air.

    You guys crack me up sometimes.

    If you look on the right side (and left) of the bike there is a black plastic piece that is between the tank and the fairing, there is a slot or hole there, push with your finger through that hole, that is the rubber shield between the engine and the air box, I'm thinking snorkel point.

    I've been told in the past that this is where it's coming from.

    Thank you for your VALUABLE contributions to this modification. I've been following the "making holes in the air box" thread for a while now. I fully intend to invest in a full exhaust system, PC, and open up the air box as well. Purchasing a full exhaust system is a good year away, do you suppose that doing this air box mod along with a Power Commander without the exhaust change will make a notable difference? I can always adjust the PC once I upgrade to a full exhaust change.

    Agreed. I'm not looking for a land speed record breaker, but more throttle response when I'm evading the inconsiderate lane merger would be VERY nice.

    I'm eagerly awaiting info on the v-stack change in addition to the heat shield wrap. I plan to do a complete intake/exhaust upgrade later this year. Finding this thread has me stoked. Thanks again.

    I will definitely keep everyone in the loop! I should get them this week I hope. The airbox is ready to go... just waiting on the stack.
