Great idea guys! Like Mac says, this drops the price of a spike set up below $100. Well within the range of cheap bastards like me ...

Have you guys noticed any issues, performance or otherwise with this set-up yet?

There is nothing wrong with budget builds and budget projects

I haven't noticed any issues. As TRX suggested in the write-up that we made gaskets since the kit didn't come with it... just for piece of mind.
As for performance, I added the FI2000 when I added the spike so that alone probably made up for any issues of too much air. I never had a chance to try it out with our the FI2000. With the spike and the FI2000 I noticed a definite pickup and throttle response. Can't wait to see how it will feel with exhaust.

Stay thirsty my friends...

I already have a Thunder MFG adapter and a spike so I can't use this mod but NedFury and Tonto (from Newcastle NSW) have new Furys and they can certainly use this! I always wondered if the spike from the VTX 1300 would fit (as many of us did) and now we know. A very cleaver mod, thanks again for posting gents.

1. First off I used aluminum tape to tape off the hole I didnít need and filled it with gorilla epoxy.
2. I took the inter piece and cut off the nipple sticking into the center big hole
3. Then I use two different sanders to sand smooth the edge I cut, so it matches the rest of the inner diameter.
4. Then I drilled and tapped the hose fittings one on the side and the other to the back, close to where the originals were at.
5. Then I used the original throttle body seal and installed in the section you ground down smooth it was a perfect fit.
6. Install the new unit to the bike with the hoses connected and the throttle body clamp tight.
7. Made a new support strap from the back of the plate to the lower original bolt where the air cleaner attaches to.
8. Added the spike and Walla here it is now I just need to make the top cover.
9. recommend making gaskets where the cone mounts too.

Air fitting adapters @ pep boys $6.00
Hey trx450rr, I have a question about the air fitting adapter from Pep Boys. Do you have a part number or what exactly do I ask for? I want that set-up. looks awesome. Thanks, Alan

Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but if I order one of the 100$ eBay spike kits,and order a accutronix adapter that will fit my 2013 fury? Sweet!

Depends on what spike you order. Drop us a link to the one you're interested in.

For HD style spikes you will need an adapter Accutronix, Thunder MFG and L&M each have one. But if you get a VTX 1300 spike as 450rr did you don't need an adapter, just follow his directions.
