900 custom mod dual intakes

As pacomutt has said the "cod piece" looks bad, he was happy painting his on the classic. Well I went one step futher and removed it and replaced it with a Cobra Power Flow intake.

The mod took me about 5 hours to complete with cutting grinding and two runs to the hardware store but its done!

I think it looks bad ass and gives some nice lines to the left side of the bike. With the proper measurements to make a one piece bracket this would be an easy one hour job.

Here are some pics.







This is a one of a kind mod, I have not seen any others like it!

Hope you like

Good eye, Appears with the techglide forward controls they seem to be a bit off. There was a thread about it a few months back with a side by side shot. Dont really know if its a mfg issue or by design.

I dont have any issues with it actually it does not hamper function.
