    Has anyone installed the K&N High Flow Air Box Elimination Kit on the new roadster? Just wondering if it would still fit as apparently it is only listed as fitting up to an 09. Would also like to know if it makes a noticeable difference. Any info appreciated.

    can't speak for anybody else,
    but I like my 3 K&N's.
    (5 actually)
    them dang crickets chirp quit a bit but after awhile, you don't notice em much.
    Back to the question of "noticeable improvement in performance"
    I'd like to think so, but the BIGGEST bang for my buck
    came from the GiPro w/ATRE.
    mine ain't a roadster tho,
    so the crickets might not chirp for you.

    Even if you have a gear position indicator like on the Roaster, there is no comparison in performance than simply having that 7% built in power reduction (training wheels) removed by the GiPro and throttle plates. What a thrill to have a first gear with all the power and torque the bike is capable of at your disposal. Gotta love it!
    Once you get every gear equal, everything else is just for show. lol (not really:D)

    I can't imagine anything a filter company could do to sell a "kit" that is better than just slapping a filter on each hole. If you don't like the noise, then a big filter under the tank. Really, what else is there?

    That kit cracks me up ... it's been here on this site for years ... it's even been modified for a single "small" filter so that the probe goes back into the airflow. Well, I guess someone had to at least try to make money from it. :rolleyes:
