I was hoping to get some opinions on which Airbox Removal Kit is best and why.

I have looked at these three:

Triumph Performance USA
http://www.triumphperformanceusa.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=7&products_id=2

Bella Corse
http://www.bellacorse.com/bce010.htm

New Bonneville
http://www.newbonneville.com/html/airbox_removal_kit.html

They are all priced very similarly, and seem to be very comparable, however I like the one from New Bonneville comes with K&N filters and not proprietary units.

Thanks!

I did try a search for Airbox Removal Kit, but everything that came back was about whether or not to do it. Is there a way to manipulate the search so the information that is in the sticky posts comes up first?

I don't think so. To be honest the search function can be hit and miss.

For a laugh one day I put in "oil" and got no results. :confused:

Incidentally, the second link takes you to a wealth of knowledge and opinion on airboxes, including how to gut the airbox, and get pretty much the same gains as pulling the airbox alltogether. It makes for some good reading, and shows the many different approaches possible.

Thanks for the info and the feedback.

The bike already had D&D's on it when I got it, so no need to go for the power pack. But since the previous owner only did half the job, I wanted to open up the intake side to match.

After reading several threads from the "great source of info" sticky, I went with the NARK from New Bonneville. It was also what my dealer recommended, but I like to have the details and an opinion of my own before I just take someone's word for things.

Actually I had a really good conversation with Steve over at RPM Motorwerks in Belleville, IL. They were extremely helpful. They are going to install the NARK for me while they have the back wheel off putting my new Pirelli Sport Demons on (went 140/70 on the rear).

I know some would have saved the labor charges and done it themselves, but I just don't have the space, the tools, or the patience to do my own wrenching. I love to ride but I'm not really one to tinker with my bikes.

Save yourself a couple of hundred bucks and just do the air box "carve"... all you need to do is get a dremel cutting tool or a hacksaw blade... 2 pod filters of your choice (Uni's or K&N's) and make a carb brace up...

Not only do you save money, you maintain the integrity of the rear fender... And you're going to go through the hassle of pulling the box anyway... why not cut it and just re-install it?

I bought the Bella Corse one and it was a snap to install and very well made. I also like the big washable filters.
