Air box lid idea...

I've had an idea for an air box lid that's NOT based on modding the stock lid.
Thought I might throw the idea out there to see what others think before I proceed.

You could make a NEW lid that's more like a picture frame... flat with NO scoop and the entire center open and covered with an outerwears pre-filter. This would be a much larger opening and about 2" lower giving plenty of room between the seat and the pre-filter. I was thinking of doing the prototype in wood as it's easy to work with and shape. It would also be good to make a mold from for the plastic finished piece. This is just an idea... Now, it's your turn to tell me if you think it's a good idea or that I'm full of shit.

That is pretty much what I had in mind. At least this tells me that I'm not totally full of crap... just not the first one to think of this.

All you have to do is re-vamp it somehow and call it your own.

I havent made one like that because its really not necessary contary to what some people say the lid we sell is a performance mod it flows enough air for what your going to get with a big 3. I have tested it with more air hence the side vents we made on a 3 mod bike it will net you about 1-1.5 hp above 7000rpm below there the gains are very very minimal. The complelty open lid like above will not flow any more useable air than our lid with the sidevents i guarantee. I have tested them on 700xx up to 56hp and im pretty sure they will support 60-63 hp then at that point the whole intact tract will need to be upgraded ie tube/tb/filter/etc.

Pros to totally open lid
its cool because someone made it themselves anything people make on there own i give them props for.
it will flow slightly more than our std lid not any more than side vent lid
probably cheaper depending on whos building it themselves

Cons
that large of a prefilter span will allow water pooling. which will then directly run onto filter
running two outerwears one in lid and one on filter hinders flow more than running a smaller opening in lid.
filter replacment if torn?

again i want to stress im not knocking that setup in anyway i think its great when people make stuff themselevs it is totally functional just pointing out the things i have learned for the past 10 years making them.

Your TB, intake Tube, and port work is only so big and will only flow so much air thats all you need to get into your air filter. On a built bike more air is necssary we saw 4-5 hp increase with the sidevents on our std lid.
