I had Accutronix send me an intake adaptor to look at the fitment and stability of just hanging the intake off of the throttle body. It was a breeze to install. There is a little movement over big bumps and a little vibration of the intake at around 80mph and above. Accutronix is going to be working on finishing the adaptor and top plate to cover the electronics and secure it a little better when Predators bike gets there next week some time. Thought I would post up a few pics of how it looks without the top plate.

Thanks. Rode for 4 hours with the intake last night. You can hear the intake every time you crack the throttle. Sounds sweet!!!!!

Here is a preview of what the cover will look like. I know Accutronix will be doing a test fit before offering them for sale. Also, there might be slight design changes from this mock up.

The covers will be chrome :cool:

Did you guys know that the smaller of the two breather hoses is the crank case breather? As it's designed your pumping oil into your air intake. We know this as we have tested the blow buy pressure off this line. Problem or not for you, just thought you'd like to know. If your intake is slightly oily then your changing your air/ fuel mixture and will foul out your TPS, MAP sensors too. You'll see Honda designed this crank case breather hose to attach to the bottom of the air box allowing any blow by to drain out and with the large volume in the stock box (unless your rings are wasted) the exhaust gases will not effect the clean air coming in. We did some testing with a similar setup, the bike ran fine, but we could see slight traces of oil where we didn't want it.

For the record, Im glad to see others offering more product for the Fury, in no way do I see this as bad competition against our Honda Fury air intake adapter. We see this as more products for the Fury which would give all more options and we hope would get more Honda Fury owners out there.

There's no doubt the quality of this product as Troy at Accutronix make some nice stuff and it's good to see their customer helping.

mmm, also... looking at this design... I don't quite understand it... it's too simple and square, seriously, anybody that know's CAD is going to be looking at this and saying WTF...

BTW, Yea, heard this kind of talk before... it's a prospective/lesson learned point of view... hope they are listening... Btw, luv that intake of your's L&M, gonna order it my next paycheck. Curious since I'm writing to and with L&M, do I need to order a fuel adjuster?... please don't tell me the fi2000r or whatever it is....

Yes, you are going to need a fuel controller if you change the air intake or pipes. I had a Fuel Commander installed and the bike tuned.
RedspawnSilver, you going to join us next weekend for a ride? tony_fury is buying the first ten rounds. OOps I meant the first round. :D

Predator: The cover looks good. I'm going to talk to Troy tomorrow to give him an update on how the adaptor is doing. Probably will place my order for the cover. When is your bike getting back to him to do the test fit?

Isn't the larger hose in the pic the PAIR hose, how will that vacuum pulling on it affect the PAIR ? Is it causing more/less decel popping ?

Yes the larger hose is the fresh air vacuum, and that's a good question as in the stock air box you have lot's of volume, so it's not an issue. To be honest Im not sure, but what your saying makes sense, if your not letting enough air into the exhaust to mix with the un burned fuel or it's inconsistent feed, then you will get some hesitation or pop. But it sounds like they may not, so who knows.

Im sure the system works fine and everyone will be happy. Im not looking to smash this thread. These guys are working together to help Accutronix and any feedback Im sure is certainly taken into consideration.

Are you kidding me... sorry chopped... but, seriously, think of this in 3d for a sec... a square cover... it goes left right left... or right left right ... however you are picturing it... there's supporting somebody, then there's flattering somebody to get something... seriously... draw this out... cut it out and put it on your bike (yes, it would be that easy)

... this is not a good looking adapter unless they have something up there sleeve that I just don't see in that CAD drawing...

Uggg, nm... I don't think I can win this conversation... yes, they are supporting the Fury... by all means, that is cool as we need it... but I just don't understand the logic in this... I can look at this and understand what is going on, it just does not look good. Cruiser, maybe... chopper with unique'ness.. no

Agreed

I Have To Agree With The Red Spawn On This One... The C.A.D. Is Nothing Spectacular. Yes, It May By Up To The Task But I Think That With This Bike Everything Has To Exceed The Tasks... Built Great, Look Even Better, And Out Perform Every The "Others"... The Fury Is A Honda And Will Be Judged By Every Other Rider Out There, We Need To Kick Our Creativity Into High Gear To Leave Them With Thier Jaws On The Floor.
Just My Un-Used Two Cents.

I'm not trying to bash either, I was just curious the way I understand the PAIR system, the solenoid opens on decel and allows air to travel from the intake thru the system, seems like the venturi effect of being on the intake like that would defeat the pair, so maybe it will help prevent the decel popping.

My intention was not to draw attention to the throttle body, but to hide it. My plan was to design a simple, plain cover that would support the air cleaner & hide the ugly wiring. I wanted something simple & as inexpensive as possible.

Low & Mean went the other direction. Now you will have four or more choices in throttle body covers when you exchange your air cleaner.

Our testing did not did not show any oil in the air filter from the breathers. The bike was run on a Dyno by FUGGIN FAB & no oil was noticed at that time.

On most engines, excessive oil “pumping” or coming out of the crank case breather is an indication on excessive engine wear. If this is not the case with a Honda, please keep me posted.

Ha! I'm glad you chimmed in Troy...

It's been discussed previously that the cover will be just that, a cover :D Nothing Fancy, just something to hide the wires. I will black mine out to make it less noticeable, I don't believe it's an area you want to draw attention :cool:

Back-in-the-day, "choppers" were palain-and-simple. I like the idea that we have choices for the bike. Some want as radical as possible, while others (me :D) are not so inclined and want simple (re: inexpensive) functional parts. That is the key...as long as the function is solid then the form can be different. I welcome any and all companies that want to design things for the Fury. Having said that, we, as Fury owners, need to educate ourselves as to the way the bike works. We need to understand what we put on the bike and the effect it will have. We also need constructive critique about products and if they are giving the desired results looked for.
