I'm curious if anyone has any experience with the Kuryakyn Hypercharger Intakes? They don't have one for the Fury, but was kinda wondering if the VTX1300 model would work? Anyone tried this

Might be a good alternative to the Spikes :cool:

Just from my experience, i would never put another one on my bike again.. I have one on my shadow and wouldnt do it again, but have talked to people that like theirs.. I just had alot of problems getting my shadow to run right when I put it on. I guess it wouldnt be bad with fuel injection but who knows

Had one on my 1800 VTX and liked it a lot. Decided not to put it on the 1300 VTX due to the fact that the 1800 is fuel injected and the 1300 is carb. The Fury is fuel injected but don't know if it would fit.

I thought about putting a hypercharger on as well, but decided not to. It would make sense that they work better with a carb. You shove more air through a carburetor, it picks up more fuel on its way through. In the case of fuel injection, it would only work if the computer constantly monitored the air/fuel mixture via an oxygen sensor in the exhaust, and adjusted for the increase of air. The Fury doesn't do that, so is only stands to reason that the hypercharger would make it run very lean at high speeds. I can see this happen slightly with my spike intake, and I think the hypercharger would make it a lot worse.

I'd just like to see more options period! These damn spikes and what not are getting stupid old, no offense to current owners, but damn, pretty soon half these damn fury's are going to all look the same!

I don't know how the hypercharger will perform on the fuel injected Fury but I do know that the lack of an O2 sensor is not the issue. The Fury has a Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor which is the primary air intake measuring device for mixture control. Reference 1 & 2.

Thanks for everyone's input! You all raise some great points that I didn't think of. While I like the look of the spike and originally wanted this setup, between the cost, and the majority of the people going this route, I was just trying to explore something different. I ride almost daily, and living in Florida, get caught in my fair share of afternoon thunderstorms. I was thinking that this would offer a little more protection from the elements then the spike, but still allow for mass air intake for optium performace.

Unfortunately, the person I spoke with at Kuryakyn sounds like he didn't know jack about bikes, and couldn't tell me whether or not the Hypercharger would even mount up to the Fury.

You should be able to get the Accutronix intake adapter and then buy a Hypercharger for a Harley CV carb motorcycle. Remember, it just an air cleaner, the slot along the bottom of the case eliminates any pressure build up inside the intake....

I would talk to someone who knows what they are talking about, 1/2 the VTX 1800s I see have them and they are FI, all the 2010 Hondas ( most others, inc HD) are suppose to be FI.

The models I was looking at are DEFINITELY made for FI motors. Includes up to current year VTX 1300 + 1800.

I don't think it would work properly with the accutronix adaptor, and a model designed for a carb. Again, was just searching for alternatives for the intake.

Oh, FYI - Did talk to Kuryakyn, and they are considering several additions for the fall/spring '10 for FURY part. Wouldn't go into any detail, but sounded like the Hypercharger was one of these since thats what I specifically called about.

Have you considered using an Air Cleaner Adapter?

The Kuryakyn unit for a H-D with a CV carburetor should fit with our Air Cleaner Adapter.

I like the stock cover style too much to replace mine. I talked to my shop about modifying the current one to take in more air. Also looking into getting a K&N filter. Drill some holes, and get a new filter, save some $.

Thanks! I had thought about this. I know the intake will bolt up fine with the adaptor, but will the carb intake still function the same as an FI designed model and will this make any difference? I don't really know a whole lot about the hypercharger units, but imagine that in theory they work alot like a blower setup for a car.

Not sure, but can't really afford to just buy it and find out that it doesn't work, and need to buy a whole other intake $$$$ :eek:

Only if you think a match stick works like your headlight :D. There is a lot of controversy regarding any performance gains so open a beer, Google Hypercharger and read 'til your brain hurts :p.
