Is any one running a carbon fiber air box on a 426, and where do you see any gains?

I got one for a good price off ebay. I dont know of any company making them anymore.

Gains? You lose about 1-2 pounds up high. I installed it with a Ti subframe at the same time. makes the rear feel like 5 lbs lighter picking it up.

Just saves weight, but with our big bikes saveing weight is a big issue... I'd go for it if I had the money
