Intake Restriction
« on: April 18, 2018, 12:54:22 PM »
I have heard rumours of an intake restriction? What is this and is it worth doing?

The intake noise is the best I've had on any bike. I'd be wary of tampering with it to lose the noise for an extra horse power that the bike doesn't need.

There is an intake baffle on the XR that's not there on a RR. Not sure if it makes a performance difference though.

Its called an "acoustics insert"  and this is what it looks like (Item 10).



I've replaced mine with the RR intake (Item 7 - part no. 13 71 7 717 840) and its definitely louder.



Hasn't been dyno'd but its worth at least 50 horsepowers

Can you just remove item 10 and leave it off?

I would be more than surprised that removing the this part would give you a 50hp boost in fact I would go as far as to say that it would be impossible. ( Its not April the First is it ) ..

Just had another think on this, So PB is saying it would give an increase of 50hp. it would then turn out more power than an RR over 200 hp. I Dont Think So  :084:  More like 5hp maybe.

It's not a restriction, more an acoustic adjuster to meet noise requirements. Try it - remove the item, it's louder but no difference in power. I like it better in, more stealth. It attracts too much attention with intake noise when it's out, unless that's what you're looking for.
