    More Air...

    I'd like to cut a few holes in my hood under my wind screen, and then a few in my storage bucket. What do you experienced guys think about that? Good idea?Bad idea? It's an '05 GPR stocker.

    The more the engine "breathes" the better...plus , believe it or not, you will be able to hear the engine better.

    Doesnt do much good to cut holes and have the stock air ducts, so you will have to remove them too. Be sure to install some sort of filtration, so you dont injest water

    Gotcha, but ... can I really cut some holes AND remove the stock air duct without an EFI controller for some added fuel? Also, are you referring to removing the air duct all the way back to the airbox on the throttle bodies but leaving the airbox on? <---- (obliviously) Thanks.

    Obviously it would run better with a controller, but you will be OK...remember when we used to flip the airfilter lid on your folks car, for the sound effect?

    Remove all the ducts, that you can get to, leave the plastic plenum attached to the throttle bodies, and get yourself at least a Power filter.

    I think I have one and John Abbott has one for sale

    Crazy.
    Lots of folks are running without the front bucket, and that alone picks up lots of air.

    I enjoy the bucket's storage, so I found a way to block the airflow LEAVING the bucket area at the back of the hood, and force air into the holes cut in the lid, and through the bucket.

    Note the two channels on each side of the black underpiece near the gauges? I used closed cell foam (seat material) to block those channels. The air gets pushed through the hood, and then through the hole in my bucket. I experimented with different thicknesses until the lid shut, with very little gap at the top.

    yea i know...........I guess i got a little exited about having a new drill and got carried away.

    Its not going to help by going all out like that - just do the big ones at the top and it works fine.

    That looks like my grandfather's minnow bucket!

    But, it does work John.

    More air, more air, more air....20-30 rpm's depending. Rev the engine with your seat on some time and watch it move like it's breathing. Engine wants more air...give her more.

    did sponge bob drill that ?



    Also reminds me of a guitar I seen in a music shop one time




    Just Kiding John, I know it is very functional. I need to add more airflow to my ski. I have no holes at all. I may add that to my wonter project list also.
