    Cool High air flow Performance open air filter

    As the title reads guys. High air flow Performance open air filter kits
    For the guys i ride with it will be of no surprise that i have posted this thread.
    As it has been a long and Nearly done drawn out process inc lots of moulds, saucing the correct materials from suppliers and R&D well 8 weeks actually but hay its not my full time job plus kids etc etc.

    Anyway this is a taster of what I've been doing,This all started as i searched the forum and read the many threads and posts from forum members regarding the different types of performance upgrade filters. IE the Badger,the Homer,the Evo,and the Renegade,there's also the cut your own the wooden etc etc.The 2 mane differences between them sealed box ie evo type,and the open type IE the Renegade. The argument still remains im sure your agree there is the sealed camp,and the open camp.My understanding is the Evo offers Ram air but mid to high end and at speed but looses out low down.And the Renegade offers instant low down and mid range but is the same at the top end.So as a personal choice i chose the later open design.Also led buy the guys i ride with raving on about theres and that i must buy one.

    Next was OK where can i buy one from.The occasional used Renegade filter comes up on e-bay £120 but there like rocking horse sh-t. Tried the dealers and there all sold out and have been for months also when you could buy not much change out of £200.00 depending on dealers

    Write then i want one you guys want them.I will make the how hard can it be
    Ha Fu-king Ha.Its not easy at all.And that's why there that much to buy i suppose,anyway persevere and well Ive cracked it well nearly

    Below is a detailed link to photo-bucket, where i have chosen 13 of the over 100 pictures Ive taken during the build unlucky for some but not me. pictures with detailed write up on each picture.

    There will be x4 different prices when im done i will post them with a link to this thread in the for sale section.

    1 ... carbon lacquered ...... TBA

    2 ... carbon ......TBA

    3 ... prepreg glass (aircraft quality ) ....TBA

    3 ... Fibreglass ( aircraft quality ) .....TBA

    all will be aircraft Epoxy resin ..and stand heat well

    The fibreglass one has a the white is a gel-coat finish so it will yellow / brown through time. This is a good coat for a paint finish. I would imagine these would look smart painted with a heat resistant paint.


    The Pre-preg glass, actually weighs the same as the carbon one but is stronger ,construction is glass pre-preg with a foam core for local stiffening.


    And then of course there is the Carbon plate ive shown it twice as there's going to be a difference in price depending on weather you want plain carbon,or the polished lacquered version.

    Each kit depending only on your choice of material for the base plate,will come with the following: Plate,K&N style mini filter,Piper cross 150 bhp high flow filter,extended oil breather hose & Jubilee clip,And Duz fixing clips to attach/remove piper cross filter.

    You will Reg from your old OEM filter box. The trumpets/Stacks and fasting screw x4,the original x6 throttle body screws and the little metal plate for the sensor.That's it folks

    This is a taster of whats hooked has been up to see pictures in link

    Prices on the filters Guys

    OK guys here's the prices
    There are x4 different prices in price order .The price will inc recorded postage and packaging to your door.

    The reason for the different prices is purely your budget,they all do the same job just different appearance and weight.( however the heaviest & cheapest fibreglass one has with the white is a gel-coat finish ) is at least half the weight of the OEM airbox

    The price excludes PAYPAL charges @ 3.4% plus .20p

    1 ... carbon lacquered ...... £157.50

    2 ... carbon ......£127.50 ( This was the one pictured fitted to my bike )

    3 ... prepreg glass (aircraft quality ) ....£110.00

    3 ... Fibreglass ( aircraft quality ) .....£100.00

    all will be aircraft Epoxy resin ..and stand heat well

    The fibreglass one has a the white is a gel-coat finish so it will yellow / brown through time. This is a good coat for a paint finish. I would imagine these would look smart painted with a heat resistant paint

    There will be x1 prepreg and x5 white Fibreglass ready to be posted out in approx 7 days.These will be on a first come first served basis.However after that all plates will be available for order with approx i week turn around which i can confirm on order.
    Confirm your request/order in the for sale section please

    Im going to move this this post to the For sale section to make it fair. The first x6 plates from the above that confirm on that post will get the first batch i make only X1 remember in prepreg.Then orders for carbon ect.

    Regards Craig..

    My shop is a 2 stall garage that this summer I had raised to be obnoxiously tall with a vaulted ceiling. I have the walls lined w/ body panels and exhausts that I have bought and then gotten tired of. My wife doesn't know anything bought bikes so she never disputes when I tell her I "need" to buy something. I guess I'm lucky in that way.

    Hi Donnie.

    No problems sending anywhere mate,however i could mark up Gift for you but if there any tax/customers charges your end they would be down to you. As for the postage charge, Ive had a flying guess at this,but let say it costs £15.00 that approx $21.00 dollars.If it was more or less i would adjust that in the total. ie you would only pay what it costs.

    This is only a guide, I’m not a mechanic, I’m just telling you how I replaced mine, and the reason for putting this on here is because the confusion shown by a couple of members that were “unsure”.
    Remove seat unit 2 x Allen bolts under the rear 2 x seat corners
    Lift Tank Remove 2 x bolts at the front of tank, using tank stand (on side of sub frame)
    Place on top yoke and slot top into tank bolt holes on tank
    Air Filter removal Remove the 7 bolts on the air box lid, once you have opened the air box remove the filter and place to one side. (No longer required)
    The bottom of the is air box is held onto the throttle bodies by 6 x Allen bolts, remove these screws as these will be required to re-install your open air box
    On the left hand side of the bike (if you were sitting on it) is a sensor just on the underneath of the box. Slide this towards you away from the filter box,
    Using a long flat headed screwdriver release the large jubilee clip from the front of the airbox intake
    Disconnect the oil breather pipe from the bottom of the air box and also from the engine end too.
    The old filter box can now be removed.
    This sensor holding plate needs to be removed and added to the base of the new open filter plate.
    Remove the 2 x trumpets using the screws to re-install them onto the new base plate.

    Installing the new Performance Airbox
    Offer the base plate up to the top of the throttle bodies and install the 6 x Allen bolts to secure the plate in position.
    Tighten jubilee clip to the front of the new base plate.
    Install the sensor back onto the new base plate
    Using the supplied length of hose attach one end to the engine breather funnel and the other end to the oil breather filter on top of the new plate.
    Add the Piper cross filter back to the filter base plate using the Dzus fasteners and your good to go.

    Oh get yourself some ear plugs because that induction noise…..you will either LOVE it or hate it. It is such a great sound!
    Now that useful and saves me a job.Nice one Smiffy
