Help me choose an Air Intake...
Guys, I've gone back and forth on different intakes for a week now...I even tossed around the idea of making my own, but out of the RIVA, R&D, and JD...which do you recommend??? I like the idea of the JD, but can't seem to find much info on it. I know RIVA is probably the most proven and is a true 4", but the R&D looks nice too. I know they all will net about the same gains, just looking for opinions here.

I'd say save yourself some coin and do YoYamma's cheap air intake. I love mine! It looks good, works great and I can use the money for other mods. The setup only cost me about $28 bucks, How much is the Riva? Is it worth the price differance?

As for the reflash and wheel? I think it's one of the best upgrades you can do. The acceleration and top speed are outstanding!

I don't have the wheel (c1 coming) but the R3 reflash is well worth the money. Gained 2 mph and the mid range is unbelievable. I can only imagine the gains once you add a wheel.

"Sure, the filter is Spectre part no. 9132 supposedly fits a 3 inch intake system.
The problem is the oddball OEM Yamaha rubber tube; that elbow was the only solution I could find locally that would fit both ends. You have to remove a collar on the elbow, then it will barely fit into the filter side; you have to be careful not to force it.
The 90 degree plastic elbow is also by Spectre, part no. 8698."
I'm glad to hear you like that Re-flash / Wheel combo. I was talking to Chunk on here the other day and he mentioned you were running that set-up and he is leaning that way.....I may too, still researching.
