AirBox delete options

Any advice welcomed

I don't particularly want a kit.

What air filters are you using? Just a pair of 50mm conical filters?

Are there any options for the wire harness cover (I might fabricate something)

If I don't fit the 'powerthingy' sensor do I just leave the original sensor in the same area? I like the pops and bangs.

Many thanks for your input

Yes, just a pair of 50mm conical filters is all that is needed. I've been contemplating this mod myself because it does make the bike sound a little meatier, and I think it looks pretty decent.

HOWEVER, I do have concerns about riding in rain with exposed filters, regardless of whether or not they are oiled.

Sounds good. Viba cover: I live in the UK and shipping is just silly.

there's no real "kit" that i've seen for the airbox delete. it's basically just a matter of choosing which pod filters you want to go with (as well as getting a crankcase breather filter) and that's pretty much it. the rest is removing the stock airboxes, and then figuring out how to cover/organize all the wiring.

i would recommend looking into these sprint filters from A&J as they are waterproof and do not require any oil - best of both worlds!
i have them and love how they look and fit, and seem to be performing well.

@perrymoa was working on a 3D cover. Maybe ping him a message and see how its coming along?
Quite a few have been put off by the Viba´s very high price (and also the Freespirits air filter kit )

Here is a vid from Brian @ A&J:

Thanks but shipping, import duties on the total purchase price including shipping and then a fee to collect the taxes makes it a non-starter.

You should be able to find them locally in the UK. They are an Australian company.

Thanks for that. I think what we need is an AandJCycles UK branch. I could run it

It's a bit of a bummer because I was in NYC a couple of months ago

Sorry for the late update, I haven't had much time due to the work 3D printer being busy. I screwed up the sizing of the shape that fit in between the frame area. So I have to do some rework to get the measurements right. Trial and error!

Hi, I drilled a hole in the K&N to mount the air sensor. I also bent the plate that covers the wiring so that the fuse box is accessible. The air intake runners are pvc plumbing 45 degree conduits. If you look close you’ll see a piece of leather and snaps joining the plates together. I guess what I’m saying is think outside the box for some ideas and make it your own.
