    JD air intake system

    Anyone else out there running this? I'm kind of surprised by the lack of interest in these. I got a true 100 rpm gain over the RIVA piece. A lot of do-it-your-selfers could benefit from this as well. The JD kit is a FULL 4" feeding the supercharger that connects to the housing with a very nice cnc machined adapter. For $160 bucks I just don't see how you can beat that.

    Absolutely NO issues with water intrusion for me and I rode back to the ramp in an absolute downpour of rain and wind waves yesterday and I wasn't even running the prefilter.

    Also, the kanaflex hose is super easy to remove if you need to check your supercharger clutch or inspect anything in the front of the motor. My RIVA intake was an absolute pain in the ass to get on and off for just quick little inspections.

    Just a little food for thought. Happy riding.

    Hitman…Agree with everything you said… its is a great air intake system…
    I was testing ride plates and air intakes on a 27 degree Celsius (80.6 F) day and found the JD air intake provided a small drop in air intake (after SC) approx 1.5 degrees C (2.7 F) over the Riva Powerfilter…

    I am rapt with the JD intake because…
    Provides cooler air….
    It feels much more ‘instantly responsive’ over any rev range… (yet to fully test)
    It takes less than 1 minute to check & feel the SC wheel… and no more struggling with a plastic pipe or Lord howl nut….
    I luv the sound it makes…

    As I often ride open ocean…I intend to…
    Together with the installed JD intake…Run another 4” kanaflex (have to search in Aust) or similar hose with air filter & pre filter mounted further fwd on top of the fuel tank….
    Then if I go out in open ocean, or want to bury the nose and fool around, I can change my intake system in 1 minute with one screwdriver… that’s great.

    Was also thinking of fitting two flow rites … towards the rear and underside of the cowl near the JD intake point to let more air in.

    Personally, the only reason I'm not running one is the fear of water getting in the intake. Even though I ride a lake, I still do some stuff that gets her wet... Not thinking the intake right there is where I want it.

    Will probably get one at some point though.

    Loving my JD sponsons.

    The lack of interest might be due to the fact that it just does not look like there was much manufacturing in the components. Aside from the adapter, everything else in the kit are off-the-shelf items. Looks like most of the effort went into gathering/packaging the parts together instead of building the parts. Just a thought. The JD Intercooler on the other hand.....

    where did you get it for $160? I just checked the greenhulk store and its $189 plus $12 to ship. For $160 I might get it but $200 theres no way.
