    Yes you will need some type of fuel management. I've had mine in the rain with no issues ever. Easy mod for a small amount of $$ that looks great

    Buy the rain covers that I posted and leave them on bike if it rains put them on.you only need fuel management if you do both air and exhaust if you only do one you don't need anything

    Well I have Suzuki engine guards and I have ordered the forcewinder kit and will make it fit.The guards can be spaced out a bit if need be or I will modify the kit,maybe with a shorter filter on the right side,which is the only side with an issue.wish me luck.

    After seeing some filter replacement links in this thread and having been to the K&N site,I should be able to source a shorter red cone style filter.I have been told it's apprx 9 inches from center of air tube intake to end of cone filter which is about 2 inches too long.But if I can space the kit out slightly or the crash bar out instead depending on what needs to be done,or turn the cone filter vertical instead of horizontal on the intake tube or whatever,I should be able to figure something out.But I have to get the kit first.I actually ordered right from the source and they supposedly had a new batch available at the first of this last week,but I have not received a ship notice yet.

    Maybe try contacting Bill ( Damguy ) he makes custom plates for these intakes. Mine are centered and would not interfere with crash bars. Just a thought..

    I see lots of spike intake products but I'm trying to find a basket or cage intake. Do you have a link for those ?

    K&N makes the RC-70040 which is a half inch shorter and the inner flange is 65mm vs 62mm. It may work for you.

    Well it looks like my Force air kit should be here tomorrow.If I can not get the right side to fit,I will remove the guards to use the air kit for now until I get a shorter rightside filter or mod the guards,as I really like the look with the guards.

    Did you buy or make a backplate?

    No not yet.Want to have a look at its fitment first,but do you have a pic or links to show me this backing plate that moves the right side back for clearance issues.I would think that any plate would require an air channel on the back side to the stock intake for it to be effective.

    Thanks for the Link MRG.I see what he did but cannot see what he used behind the plates to mount them on the bike?I assume by what I can see it was the stock air box cut in half??

    Ok the Kit came in and the K&N filter the kit comes with is almost 2 inches too long for the right side with Suzuki crash bars in place.So I have temporaily removed the crash bars for now,so I could use the supplied filter.I am going to search the K&N site first for a shorter filter but so far all I have found is round ones ,and would like to get the oval end so it matches.May have to go round end on both sides if I cannot find an oval one.I had a good look at the crash bars and could mount the attachment point at the top farther forward if I was willing to cut a slot in the front radiator shroud for a modified flat extension to go through,which is a thought I had.So for all you with crashbars ,you cannot mount the right side as the force kit comes without lots of modifications to mounting points of crashbars on both sides so there is symmetry from the front view.Still investigating filters that will have to be minimum 1.5 inches shorter to fit the right side with crashbars in stock positions.I really do not want to cut my stock airfilters ,like some of you have done,at this time, but may go that route later.

    Yes I was thinking the same thing.Would be nice to have the filters even on both sides.

    I can make my own if I wish.I am also thinking as nice as would be to have the filter offset on bothsides the same,you only see one side at a time anyways and the cleaner I can keep the mount the better.Not saying the plates do not look clean ,just the less clutter(maybe not the right word)the better.
