i think the lid holds the filter on. so if you take the lid off nothing will hold the filter down.Has anyone tried the lid removal mod yet? Any improvement? My question is I have an AKRA slip on and will be taking it to the dealer to have it maped. Does it matter to have the lid removed before mapping it or after? :headscrat
I understand that having a solid mechanical background, but with no know available piggyback programmers out yet ie: powercommander PCIII's. The only available mapping at this time that I can find, is the dealers KTM slip-on map, I was wondering if the computer will see the less restrictive intake and compensate? Thanks:thumbup:Intake mods often have as much if not more affect on fuel requirements than exhaust mods, so you will probably want to get am a/f reading with the less restrictive airbox. While the bike is on the dyno it would be a good idea to take a pull with the air filter removed to see what that does for power. That will tell you if you will gain anything by going with an oem style k&n if and when they become available.
Could you get some clarification from them?I was in Beaudry Motorsprots yesterday and they were working on their Race 690 SMC. They had it on the dyno (don't know the numbers) - They had the top of the airbox cut out and said with the Akro map it made a huge difference, they had also installed a Leo Vince that looked real nice and bolted right up. Not sure the model of the pipe, but I bet somebody could call them and ask.
As soon as I get my FMF, I'm going to cut the top of the box and have them re-map.
