Open Airbox mod? - May 29, 2009, 01:11 PM

Anyone done this? Seen a lot of custom made ones, with a dremel. the ASB kit looks like it just completley leaves the filter out in the open, I'm feeling the airbox still there just with vents or ports cut into it. Anyone done this or know how?

depends on the bike, if the intake system counts on any kind of RAM air system, opening up the airbox will be terrible for it, usually you only see this done to older carbureted bikes so that jetting can be changed to compensate. If you take a look at super high end bikes with tons of power, the trend is towards bigger and bigger airboxes not opening them up

yeah, you better be ready to retune if you do it.

do your research and see how well your bike responds to it...

yeah, don't want to run your OEM filter anyways. I opened up the airbox on a carb'd Monster. I'm not sure if it ran any better, but it sounded pretty cool.
