New Intake prototype

Got the new Intake mocked up. This is just a prototype still working out the kinks. Carbon Fiber intake tube.

Where did you get the tube? I like the idea but little scared about sand.

Looks nice but I'm also worried about dirt/water. Perhaps if there was a wall/floor under the filter, this would eliminate some of the dirt/dust/water

Like I said this is just a mock up There will be a shield to protect from dirt and water that gets slung up that way. This is not a performance upgrade for someone who rides in the mud a lot. I run the same type of set up on my YFZ 450 and never have a problem with dust or mud. Pre-Filters are a must for this set up. If you run in the sand this will work fine. For dusty areas you might want to run a UNI.

I am looking into a more productive way of getting them together. When I get that straightened out yes I will be selling a kit. I may also offer a cheaper aluminum intake set up.

Nice work

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

nice... will u make a oversize intake box for us more trail ridin guys.

i was thinking what if u made the inner surface like gulf balls surface ik my friend has this intake kit on his civic and the inner surface is like that and he got 7 more hp over his older k&n intake tube. plus some team made a body kit for a honda fit that has the same surface and they got more mpg..... this is based on the face that the pited surface of a gulf ball a very aerodynamic
just a idea....

I will look into this. I have herd of using veins in the intake to help direct airflow. I will try a few different things and see what the dyno numbers will look like.
