I haven't ridden it yet, but will post up here when I do. I'm waiting on some other parts to get powder coated at the moment.
I expect it will ride similarly to stock because the length, diameter, and velocity stack profile have been retained, though the velocity stack mouth is slightly larger than stock.
Even at 8,000 rpms, the K&N filter I designed the kit for flows 4.5 times more air than what the motor is capable of ingesting. It is a 4" diameter by 6" height filter.
Here's how that works out:
*The motor flows 78 cubic feet per minute at 8,000 rpm (2208 liters per minute.)
*At 78 cfm (the most air the engine will ever be pulling in), the motor needs an effective filtering media area of 17 square inches (110 square cm)
*The K&N filter I designed the kit for has an effective filtering area of 75 square inches (484 square cm), roughly 4.5 times more than the engine is capable of ingesting.
The filters actually really cool. It has a molded negative bolt hole on the inside of the endcap, so a bolt can be inserted through the top of the filter to secure it. It also has their X-stream end cap, which has filter media on the end instead of just a black rubber cap, so the effective filtering media is actually more than 484.
