    Advice/Links for air box mod

    Hey, I'm soon to have a go at doing an air box mod to my 2005 rsvr, the one where you get rid of the top air box cover and use the tank as the seal.

    I'm sure there has been loads of posts and instructions on this, so if you know of any links to threads with step by step instructions - preferably with pics, it would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    This is a Falco one (gen 1 obviously) but might give you some stuff to think about. Not sure if I've seen a gen 2 diy airbox mod write up but being a gen 1 owner that's no surprise.

    Is it worth the hassle? Can you not run to a renegade type and put that 'plastic lunchbox' on a shelf in your garage where it belongs?

    Mmm, if you have to ask you probably can't afford it

    Not sure exactly. Some of the cheaper ones (fiberglass base plate rather than carbon fibre) might be under 100. Ask Griff (fusebox) I think he has some own brand ones he is selling.

    Cheeky git I could buy 4 of your bike, chop them up and use them as ground fill for the patio I'm planning

    But seriously if it is under 100, like 80 then might be worth thinking about. Griff is a forum member (excuse my ignorance) how do I find out exactly how much they are? Also from from what I've read the induction noise is very loud from this type, which can overpower everything else... exhaust etc... What u reckon??

    On a side note where abouts in w.York's are u?

    Sorry I should have said ask Tash too.

    The induction noise is one of the key attractions!

    West side of West Yorkshire, near Keighley. If you want to pop by and collect those bits for your patio footings drop me a pm.
