    doesnt really matter, i ran the R&D power filter till i went to cold air from one of the 4" hull vents right to the throttle body

    I wonder how much heat is generated in the engine compartment while riding, or even sitting in the sun. Thought about slapping on a filter right at the throttle body as some have done but more air isn't necessarily a good thing if its really hott air. I would assume the stock intake setup keeps the heat away for the most part.
    Any thoughts to this?

    there are two 4" hose the pull air from under the cowling, but you still pulling heated air into the motor, weather you have the stock air box/filter or a R&D / other air cleaner, the only way to get cold air into the throttle body is pull it directly from the outside

    OK, so I have the ribbon along with the rubber insert out of my VXS and for the life of me I don't see why I need to put anything back in there. Looks smooth to me, why can't I just put my throttle body assembly back on without anything in there?

    On mine there was a lip that has been said to create turbulance going into the throttle body. I used the Riva insert, but many just cut a piece of PVC to slip in there.
