has any one made a successfull airbox that sealed to the bottom of the tank....???
i'm guessing this would give a nice performance increase...:p

you may gain a little at low speeds.....but you loose the ram air effect the faster you go...you'll also be getting unfiltered air....:eek:

Interesting reading, even the standard airbox mod could reduce power by the sound of it. and if the resonance as been calculated at its maximum for the tls, then making the airbox larger could decrease power as well.unless the intakes are modified and the resonance checked for peak performance. when you brainy types work it out can you let me know plz :)

Beautifully succinct smmary.A bit more delving produced a recomended 0.4 metres primary intake length (guess I'll be putting the snorkles back on) and the capacity of the airbox should be a minimum of 130% of throttle cubic capacity of the engine. In V twins the still air in the plenum chamber. The filter should therefor be away from the throttle bodiies (ie in ramair runners) or as suggested elswhere in place of one of the headlights, although is it not open to damage by rain ingress.
Please correct /clarify as required
