Ok, so I have had the original Accutronix intake adaptor on my bike for a few months now. I was concerned with the amount of movement and did not want to damage the rubber boots that hold the throttle body together. I ended up buying the L&M adaptor because I liked the way it covered the electronics on the top of the throttle body. Of course I decided to do this just before Accutronix came out with their updated adaptor that has a lower support, but I didn't want to wait for their top cover to come out anyway.

When installing the L&M adaptor, I was concerned that the spike intake screws right to the fiberglass. I ended up using the back ring off of the Accutronix adaptor (that has the three threaded holes in it) behind the L&M adaptor to secure the spike intake to the bike.

All in all, it came out really nice. The intake is now rock solid and sealed up very well with the D&M gasket and the stock intake gasket. Surprisingly, everything fit together and you can't tell that I did anything different with it.

I dont like it that the Low & Mean adapter kit doesn't allow the vacume lines to connect to the adapter. They supply the little filters that just dangle behind the cover. The vacume lines are connected to the adapter for a reson "For Vacume". Just as your car had vacume lines connected to the carb for vacume, otherwise your car would have had little filters on the end instead of being connected to the intake. Im going to go along with the Accutronix intake adapter with the bottom bracket as it allows the vacume lines to connect directly to the intake, just as the factory OEM intake does.

The L&M adaptor retains the stock function. If you take apart the stock intake, you will see that the lines connect behind the filter. The L&M filter does the same thing with the small filters on the vacuum lines. Their small filters have rings on them that I ran zip ties through to secure them where I wanted them.

Correct! The stock lines do connect behind the filter, on the intake I might add, witch allows the vacume to work when the bike is running or excelerating. If you unhook the vacume lines from the intake and put a little filter on it, how does the vacume work? It can't, because it has been dissconected from the vacume source. There is a reason for these lines to be connected to the intake so the vacume works. The Low and Mean intake adapter would have been perfect if it allowed the vacume lines to connect to the intake, just as the OEM intake does or the Accutronix does. Again, I will add that the Low and Mean adapter with the big cover is the nicest looking adapter as it hides all the stuff you don't want to see, but they should have put more effort into what it does instead of just the look. I think we can agree the this would be a better product if we could just connect the OEM vacume lines directly to the intake like there supposed to, rather then having to chop the lines, add filters and come up with an idea to keep them from rattling around the adapter cover.
Question.. Why are there vacume lines connected to the OEM intake, what purpose do they serve and will dissconecting them cause problems or longterm damage to the bike?

Refer to one of the other 2 threads you posted this question on. I posted up a quote from L&M on the BREATHER LINES.
