    Default Marthy's Airbox mod

    Not sure if it's really my mod, but I figure I'll put everything at the same place. As some of you know how I do things... I'll go all out and do the airbox mod the right way.

    I did try the 4 short velocity stack and felt a noticeable improvement. So after few test ride I decide to take the plunge and order a complete set of those. Should be here within the next 2 weeks.

    Velocity Stack 32mm ID x 120mm Long (TAPERED) - 1.6mm Gauge Ali

    While I'm there I will use the spare airbox that I have. I did order some heat reflective tape to isolate the heat from the engine to airbox. (If I have some left over I'll do the bottom of the fuel tank too)

    Still not sure to go ram air or not. I don't think i will have any effect at the speed I'm driving usually. But the cold air might not be a bad thing...

    To be continued...

    Little bit of facts... about ram air. Worth it or not. Seams from reading few article that it does have advantages... but pressure build up comes around 80+ MPH.

    After looking at the 32mm stacks your speaking of I'm curious, very curious. What r they? Do they go in place of the air box? What do u use to filter the air and my other question is will they fit under the gas tank? Thanks for your time on this matter.

    I believe (marthy correct me if I'm wrong) that this new v stack will fit inside of the stock air box thus using stock filter set up. Marthy did mention that they may need to be cut down.
