Default VTX1300 Spike air cleaner to Fury

This part was meant for a VTX1300
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.

Chrome spike on eBay $88.50
Air fitting adapters @ pep boys $6.00

So you accidently ordered the wrong one and ended up doing some work and getting it to work or you bought it on purpose knowing you was going to have to work to get it to fit?

Regardless it looks good on the bike, nice job!

With minimal work I think it looks cleaner than the other spike adapters out there.

Initially I purchased it and yes I didn't check the specifications... whoops!
Then I noticed a few minor mods that needed to be done to actually make it work
So my brother TRX450R pick his up knowing the mods we had to do so this time around it made it easier. We're actually looking to get a local CNC shop to fab that part up for us so we wouldn't have to use the epoxy to fill up those holes.

Default Spike-Mod

Guys this is awesome! This mod drops the cost of a spike by at least $200. I rate this right up there with the T-Mod for bang for the buck. Thanks for posting the how to for the Spike-Mod!
