Ok, on a rolll here...

I noticed that on some of bikes people have installed some screens on the airbox. Thinking about this more - the airbox in the left number pannel seems completely sealed, or at least close. How does this motor breathe???

Have any of you installed some fine screens in the # panel?
If so, how large and how many clicks did you need to jet?

Just a thought.

The bike gets air from under the seat, but modifying the side pannel allows for a quicker more direct route. See this article for more info...


If you don't want to tackle this yourself, Rob Barnum of Barnums Pro Products sells side panels already cut out with trick looking steel plates and screen already assembled. He also sells just the trick looking insert by itself if you want to do the rest of the work on your existing side panel.
