    Cutting right side fairing for air to match the left side?

    I have seen this posted but couldn't find the old thread. Are most guys cutting that little black plastic piece out of the fairing on the right side to match the left side for more air?

    Did they not do this from the factory because that is the side the intake is on? I can't imagine that much water would get in that way and cause any damage. Any thoughts before I go hacking away?

    Yep thats the way I did it.

    I also did the hood and bucket mod. Made a big difference. Gained 60 rpm.

    Jus cut mine out yesterday! we will see how she works on friday! I used a dremel (with the diamond bit, small one) and shoved a piece of cardboard between the plastic piece and the hull, work like a champ and took all of 2 minutes.

    I did that,,,,,, also under the wind screen. and a two inch hole at the back of the seat, and put a pvc pipe in the two inch hole with sealant around it.
    I replaced the bucket with a baffel.
