Picture of Completed Airbox Mod? New picture added

Does anyone have a picture of Ivans Airbox Mod for the full system? I have the photo copies but they are a bit fuzzy to read after being faxed. I would very much appreciate someone posting a photo of the finished product.

I have the full muzzy system and ivans jet kit and want to make sure the airbox mod is per spec for what Ivan recommends.

Thanks
DaveNC

Dave - I don't have a pic handy, but here's my shot at a good description:

Flip the cover over upside down - that verticle intake pipe that's in the middle get's split, with the cut running perpendicular to the frame rails of the bike (cut across it in the direction running from one side of the bike to the other).
Then remove the half that will be towards the front side of the bike when the cover is installed, so that you'll be able to look in through the scoop (with it installed in the bike) and see directly to the filter.
Smooth the rough edges, and you're done!

Your kidding right? If not I don't have a clue what your talking about because it makes no sense at all. As far as I can tell it looks exactly like the picture you sent me. What do you mean I shouldn't see the table and I shouldn't have gone through the top? What I did looks exactly like your pictures from the front and side views.

The orientation of the picture I posted is oriented the same way as your photo #1 diagram on the right side of the page. Whats left of the duct is at the rear of the picture I took facing up. I know the picture is dark so look at it again and explain to me how it's not right.

I think your just pulling my chain.

Dave,
I'm doing my MB jet kit & the airbox mod now. From the pictures I have (pretty blurry) the top cover of the airbox (pop rivetted on) has to stay in place.
It looks like you've removed that pop-rivetted cover, and I think that's what Ivan means when he says you shouldn't see the table through the hole.
I think the actual cutaway of the spout is ok,
cheers,
Dave

PS: I just popped in to check a detail on Pat's site. Where would we be without it?

?
Hey Dave,
I never had no stinken pop rivetted cover. There wasn't one there when I pull the airbox cover off. The guy I bought the bike from must have removed it. Mine only has the rubber cover that mounts over the opening of the duct. Apparently I'm missing something. This explains why what Ivan said made no sense at all. I was missing some very valuable information. I quess I need to buy a new airbox cover and start over again and do it the way Ivan designed it. The right way.

It's only for use with a full exhaust system and K+N with my MB Carb Kit
(the needles are different.... to follow the increased airflow)


(I have asked one of the other members to post the mod done correctly...in this topic)

**PAT...please save it to your website if it's not an inconvienience.


Thanks,

Ivan

Here is a pic of my air box lid, modified for Ivan's full system kit.

As Ivan said, you only remove part of the ducting that drops down into the opening of the air filter.

1) Take your time and go easy with the rotary tool cutting disk on the ducting and on the ribbing.

2) I used the rotary tool grinding wheel to partially finish the ribbing.

3) Finish work with sand paper.

ENJOY MORE HP!!!!!

Air Box Mods

Hej,
A very simple method to add some intake air is to drill a series of evenly spaced 10-12mm holes in the air filter sleeve that sits inside the air filter element. With even spacing of the holes there is uniform air flow thru the filter providing its clean!
T.T.

Would you recommend this simple air box mod if you just want to install a K&N air filter? Wouldn't I benefit from a bit more air in the box?
