Air Intake 900

Has anyone done this mod?

http://i325.photobucket.com/albums/k...0/DSCN1356.jpg

I want to order a second duct if I do it though. I have Cobra pipes, a FI2000R and a K&N filter with the Kuryakyn air box cover. If I hadn't spent $110 on those two I'd buy a different intake, but I was hoping to do this so it wasn't money wasted.

Thanks,
B

I had done this to mine before I bought my intake. I understand the concept behind it, but could tell absolutely no difference. You'll get more of a noticeable difference removing your secondary throttle blades. Do a search on here for more info and pics on how to do it.

So, remove secondary throttle blades, and add a second intake?

I did the same thing at first (K&N filter & Show Chrome cover). Decided a few months later to upgrade to an air intake (ArlenNess Big Sucker), also removed the secondary throttle plates (butterflies), they are located right in front as you remove the airfilter. This mod is one of the easiest to perform (there is a thread on how to do this located on this forum). My bike runs great (awesome throttle response).

Well, it's almost winter, sorta.....

I moved the intake snorkel to the front, and left the original open as well along with removing the throttle plates. After this mod with a set of pipes any suggestions on setting for my FI2000R?

Do you have any pics of the airbox mod? I'm thinking on doing this mod and adding the FI2000R . I have stock pipes debaffled.
Will I be seeing any improvements with this additions?
Any suggestions?
Thanks..
