Re: Whatcha Got There?

The 1100S intake duct is inconceivably constricted and the air filter  
inconceivably tiny. Like the bumblebee, a wonder it flies at all let  
alone so well.

There are two pricey aftermarket units - a very nice one from "Lennie"  
in Austraiia which is carbon fiber and the other from San Jose BMW.

But in a few hours, you can easily Dremel out the worst of three  
constrictions and re-shape with fiberglass. Hard to think of a home mod  
which is easier to do, cheaper, or has less of a down side in case of  

Of course if you are aiding the breathing, you should get a Techlusion  
1031 to enrichen the mixture in the event you don't have this wonderful  
gizmo already.
