The stock airbox on this
bike is pretty restrictive although it does a pretty good job of keeping
This bike responds very
well to increased airflow by reducing the intake restriction.
Using the stock airbox and our filter kit releases another 3 + hp
Using the K&N filters alone in the stock airboxes offers no extra
power without removing the lid entirely because the lid is very restrictive.
The advantages of using our setup over pod filter kits are:
stock airbox is retained eliminating the oily mess caused by open crankcase
B) This setup offers the easiest installation.... Less than 1/2 hr. of
work to install
C ) Easiest maintenence.
Filters stay cleaner for longer period of time due to the fact that they
don't have to trap brake dust and road dirt from the front tire
Filters remain in the same sheltered location that the factory designed
them to be in.
D) Lowest cost per HP than any other kit available.
Available for Yamaha Speedstar side airbox as well
as a Filter Kit which includes:
I no longer sell the filters for this - you'll need to get them from K&N
or your normal supplier. K&N
filter for top airbox and speedstar side box - YA-1602-U (2 required
w/ speedstar side airbox)
