Watch this space .

If you were to buy this kit ( see pic below ) It would cost you around $650 yes I know sharp intake of breath ( lol no pun intended ) I just ordered two 50mm 180 degree aluminum tubing for $38 , they are 24" long winch means you can cut them to what ever length you want you could even cut them into a J pipe , Scotch Brit prime and paint black easy peasy ..I already have the pod filters . So my point Is $38 V $650 a no brainer really .

I felt the same way and I tried that and was unsuccessful. The sizing isn’t quite right and you’ll still need some sort of bracket to hold it properly.

I hope you succeed look forward, painfully, to hear if you do haha.

Exactly the same way the air intake Is attached to the throttle body .If It doesn't work out I'm down $38 oh well back to the drawing board .

Work in progress...Cut and painted the pipes , until the jobs finished I'm still not sure about It . but this design covers up most of the wiring left behind from the air box delete . The only other thing I have to work out Is a bracket to hold It In place . Legs do not get in the way .
Let me know what you guys think .

In my opinion, you're on the right track, but the pipe looks way too long to me (is it hitting the frame?). I totally understand the huge cost savings, but because of that it may be worth considering buying 2 of the U-shaped pipes, so you don't have to worry about cutting the curve off exactly in the middle. Let it wrap around a bit more and maybe take another 2+ inches off the straight part, so it has more of the Free Spirits-shaped curve to them and it would look really good. Just my 2 cents.

Brace your airinjection. Without the box it going to rattle and shake loose over the time. Even if you just zip-tie it...

Done.....The throttle body clamp holds It really tight. Its very light weight which helps a lot It doesn't hit the frame but not a lot of clearance so I used a couple of rubber sticky pads under the filter and intake pipe which should take care of any vibration against the frame. Ill be taking the bike out later today and give It some welly , hopefully the filters will still be there when I get home .
