I really like the stock intake but I'd like to cut a design into it like the ones made by Ducks Custom Intakes. Is anyone running one of these on their bike? Does it need additional filtration behind the cut out? Will it effect engine performance and is a fuel controller needed? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
I sent my spare air cover out last Saturday. Currently Len is not doing any covers til possibly the end of July. He was involved in an accident while riding.
"I was involved in a motorcycle accident. I will not be doing covers for a while until I heal up. I will try to answer emails if I can. I have a bunch of stitches and a fracture in my arm. I hope to be doing covers by the end of July if I am healed by then. Thanks for looking into Ducks covers.
Yeah... I saw that on his site. His work looks really awesome. I'm really wanting to do it myself, as my idea isn't very intricate and I'm pretty good with a dremel tool. I'm just wondering if I need to find some type of black foam filter to put behind the cutout and if performance will be affected. Not even sure any air flows into the motor through that portion of the cover. According to some suzuki m109 sites, which is what he mainly does, air doesn't even enter the motor from that area anyway and no filtration is needed. Can't find any info though about the Fury.
You would be fine on performance, I would think you will need to clean the filter a little more often because it will be bringing in more air, which means more dust. These are just my thoughts. As for fuel controller, I dont think any others have complained about a change in performance or need for air/fuel controller. I would attempt this myself, but thats just me. I have a dremel and "ain't skeered" LOL!
I still have my original cover, give me an idea of what your wanting and I will try something that someone would be interested in and if it turns out, you can send me your factory one and pay me for my time. I won't expect to make what Ducks is making, I just would like to play with the idea possibly.
