Hi...

Wondered if anyone knew of any good airbox mods, found the one below?

Any help or thought's really appreciated

Cheers

Joe V's Airbox and Base Plate Modifications

This mod definately works but is not a patch on taking the entire lid off. This page is Joe's original mod with extra pics taken from another site.

AIRBOX


1. Remove the air box lid
2. Turn the lid upside down
3. You will see the 2 air intake valves. These will be removed.
4. Slide the actuator rods out of the flappers
5. Turn the lid over and locate the intake air control valve actuators
6. Turn the actuators and remove from the air box lid .
7. Take one of the vacuum lines that run to the actuators and form a loop to the
"t" fitting in the vacuum line.
8. Now all that is left to do to the lid is to seal the holes left by the vacuum
actuators. On the bike that I have done, I use fiberglass disks, washers really,
with gasket maker, and place one disk on the inside of the opening and one disk
on the outside of the opening and secure with a 1/4" bolt and self-locking nut.
It is important to seal these openings.


1. Remove the air filter
2. Remove the base plate by removing the screws
3. Cut away the material outlines in yellow in figures 3 and 4. Be careful not
to cut the towers that the filter bolts to. Also if you turn the base plate up
side down you will see that there is a lip that seals to the bottom of the base
plate, be careful not to cut this.
4. Reinstall the base plate and filter. Reinstall the air box lid. Check the TPS
adjustment. Re-map to +5 +10 +5 and you are done. You should now be able to
reach red line in 6th gear.

If you use a Pipercross air filter on a tlr it basically does the entire joe v mod for you in one go.
