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

I am still waiting on quotes for Ohlins and Maxton

All so often the front header bolts snap on the TL engines
Lots of ways suggested on how to get the sheared part out, I've tried many times welding washers onto what left, then a nut etc but this rarely works, I've never used easyouts as generally if they snap your looking at a replacement...
A couple of people are looking at doing this mod atm so I decided to do a quick write up on how I installed the TLR velocity stacks in my TLS airbox.
Stu has done some testing and reports that there is a 7% improvement in airflow.
Parts needed: One stock TLS airbox, pair of TLR velocity...
