    Performance airkit fitted

    Well Hooked's airbox kit arrived this morning





    First impressions...fecking fantastic quality and much much better than i was expecting makes my own attempts at airbox mods look really cheapo (which of course they were )

    photo's say a thousand words as they say, so here you are..

    removed old box

    trumpets and sensor bracket fitted


    Plate mounted onto throttle bodies and new longer breather pipe fitted

    Breather filter fiited

    main filter (little tip when fitting dzus fitting,put a cloth under it incase you drop it and you have to remove panels and oil reservoir to get to the b**t**d )



    All ready for action


    If any of you guys are considering getting one of these, take it from me they are absolutely bang on all holes matched up perfectly and fitted piss easy. Mine is the pre-preg one and the finish is great . I can only imagine how good the polished carbon looks like, but it must surely be as good as a genuine Renegade does.

    Not been out on the bike yet as it's chucking it down, and i need an MOT first so can't comment on it's performance out on the road.

    10/10

    You are the man, Sprocker....(well okay after Hooked!). Those photo's will greatly assist Mr butterfingers (me) in attempting to fit mine....ONLY problem is, I'm guessing as the wife's gone out for the day & the outlaws are away too (live over the road)...Mine will be sitting in the post office, so won't get to fiddle until tomorrow....ah well at least I'm off work then, so can have a relaxed go at it...Cheers!

    Hey Sprock!!

    Have the same unit due here in OZ next week I guess, cant wait

    Quick question for you, the Pipercross filter, is that the type of filter that needs to be washed and oiled like a motox filter?

    Not sure if it needs that maintenance, did you oil yours or anything

    Cheers Pete

    PS: TELL US WHAT ITS LIKE, THE NOISE

    Great post Sprocker. Check your PM's for a ride out.

    Oz, if its anything like the K&N air filters they come pre oiled for first use. Then when u wash them down u re oil them.

    I never oiled it, but looking at the instructions that came with the filter thats what you do after cleaning it etc.

    Here's a sound clip, but then with it just being in the shed you wont get the full effect that'll be when i'm out on the road giving it some rev abuse

    Very Nice Sprock

    Should be more than great with a little air getting into the KIT

    I am guessing it was pre-oiled then, how long are the intervals at which we must clean and oil, and does it tell you the type of oil to use.

    Cheers Pete

    Fitted my kit today too....was an interesting experience....and yes, I did manage to drop one of the fasteners into the fairing, so had take the bugger off to retrieve! Anyway...had half an hour of sunshine & dry roads this afternoon....Wow! The bike certainly feels much more urgent in the mid range, however, nobody told me I was also installing an amplifier and bass bin below my tank....Blimey that induction roar is pretty full on...I can't hear my exhaust anymore!...Anyway, well pleased with the kit & look forward to exploiting it and the bike as the weather improves...Cheers Hooked nice one!
