I am preparing for a dyno of the bike in the coming months. Rather than modify the stocks air ducts, I plan to replace the stock items with these and remove the vacuum hoses. Unfortunately the supplier has no flexibility on pricing so will look at other options.
These should have given me more power and a better ready for when I get a good map for the powercommander V fitted to the bike. The alternative is to gut the existing air ducts.
I found this picture on the http://www.vine-creative.com/ website. These were made for the Repsol MotoGP Team. I emailled Jorge and he mentioned that AXIO do have them available.
I so far have not managed to source one.
I am looking to get a set of Street Hooks so that the rear pegs can then be removed without stripping the bike down. Black and gold won't suit the bikes scheme but i'm sure something can be done about that.
I decided to get the carbon fibre cover painted Repsol Blue. I contacted Dream Machine and sent it off back in November. When I got it back, it was a very poor match. Apparently, their Repsol Replica's are not an exact colour match to the genuine Honda colours. I have received an email saying they have made a better match. Fingers crossed!
