Pics of (EFI) airbox baffle ?

Having trouble finding a pic thread about removing the airbox baffle. (exhaust baffle threads complicate the search ;-)

What does the EFI aribox baffle look like? How do you find it?

Mine's a 2010 EFI and I know they design of the baffle within the airbox has changed over time.

I was fondling the inside of the airbox today and can't see what it would be that should come out.

You can only pull it out from the right side. I don't know if I have a photo of it, I took mine out a few weeks ago though.

It's flat and maybe 6 or 8 inches across and 4 - 5 inches high. It also has a hole about three by one inches wide.

It's a little fiddly to remove because two or three of the right hand side cover screws are blocked by the frame. I lowered the box a bit, dropped the rear fender and removed the hoses to the throttle bodies to get to those screws. Once you are in the baffle pulls right out.

STW: I took a photo of the baffle, and I had one of the right side of the airbox when I had it open.

Here is the baffle:

And here is the airbox...there is a slot running diagonal from about half-way along side the air filter downwards to the right...that's the slot the baffle fits into.

Hope this helps . . .

Great help Junipero. Thanks.

So that's the 3" slot I'm feeling at the top of the airbox?

Do you re-glue the right side of the airbox back on or just bolt it up.

I removed the baffle on my 2010 T100 yesterday and I can tell it's a bit of a **** of a job!

Even when move the airbox box back a little, to access the difficult screws, it ain't easy.The scratches on my right hand prove that.

Just waiting for my new UNI air filter them I'm good to go for a remap.

STW; I just cleaned the old sealer off and bolted it back up. I have been wondering about that though. I probably should have put new sealer back on there. It was so tricky to access that I guessed it would be a messy job to seal it on is side like that.

I don't know whether it's leaking a bit of air or not. But I'm sure the idea in my head that it's not sealed will nag me enough that I'll pull the whole box out and neatly reseal the gasket.

Fun job, right? . You'll love it when it's remapped. Unbelievable difference. What mods did you do and what map will you use?

Loads of general mods as per siggy, but for engine mods:

De-AI;

De-OČ sensors; (helps with throttle jerkiness)

Airbox baffle removal;o nothing unusual. I've tried maps: 20498 & 20510 from the Tune ECU site, but neither worked and all I got after a supposedly successful download was a flashing MIL and no-go with the motor.

So I'm still awaiting delivery of a UNI air filter then it will be down to Piemans "Emporium of motorcycling pleasures" - for a remap number 3.

The sun's out here so I'm off out to try my new bar-end mirrors and baffle-less intake.

Laters

^ ah, very nice. I didn't see your sig as I was using my phone. I have the setup for Pieman's no. 3 map. With the ignition advance. It's fantastic!

I splurged on the NH bellmouth too. I know I could have used a Polaris, but the NH bellmouth is a thing of beauty. Too bad though it's covered by the side panel...but I know it's there!

I did mine recently. Really not a big deal. A couple of the screws are a pain to get to, behind the frame and shock. I used a pair of pliers to remove them. Some people remove the shock but I didn't. Once you get it apart remove baffle, clean it up, reapply some silicon sealant and the little gasket and button her up.

A few pics:
