I've heard the only negative to this mod is that you don't want to ride in the rain. When you gut the intake you eliminate the channeling/funneling that is used for water??

**Note**
I did part of this yesterday and did not get pictures of the intake before I started modding. There are 2 vertical and 1 horizontal find in the intake. Remove them (This should be step 15)


Step 16:
Cut out the rounded part in the intake that has the two holes In the back. I found that using a hammer and a flat screwdriver works better at knocking everything out, but be careful with the screwdriver. You might have to patch up a hole or two like I did. If you do go that rout and do have a hole to patch, the easiest way is to use a soldering iron with a flat tip.






Step 17:
Clean up the edges where you removed material. I used a dremel with a 120 grit barrel attachment and a wire wheel to remove bits of the fiberglass that were just hanging around.







There are two pieces of plastic on the stay that stick into the air intake. You can leave them in, cut them, or rip them out. I ripped them out and will continue the tutorial with that.



Step 18:
Rip off the two pieces of plastic from the stay. There's only a small rivet holding them in and is easy to pull off.


Step 19:
With some thin gauge aluminum or stainless steel that you can get from Home Depot, Lowes, or even Walmart, fab up some plates that seal up the holes in the intake. I used 32g stainless steel as I had it on hand. I cut the metal, bent it, and placed it into the intake. Sealed it top and bottom with liquid silicon gasket and let it dry. Make sure to let the silicon stand until it skins over, then insert the plates ontop of it, then add more sealant ontop for added insurance.



Step 20:
Put everything back together the way you took it off, unless you got pissed and a hammer to get something off, lol.



Before I did this my bike was really lagging in the 3000-4500rpm range when going from a stop. The engine would want to bog down and not run until the RPM's got over 4500rpm. Now, the bike wants to run when it hits 3000rpm. The power curve also feels much more smooth all the way through the RPM range.

Special thanks to MXRider for helping me understand what to do and having pictures of his modded intake.

Id rather sweat then blead

Was considering doing this but god knows the pictures would. Help. Is it just me that cannot see them?

Anyone else have an opinion on this mod?
