    Cool Forcewinder and Spike styled intake on the cheap

    For those looking for an intake mod. The parts listed below will give you two different intake looks. Forcewinder or spikes, have both looks for approx $120.00+ less than the Forcewinder kit.

    - http://store.knfilters.com/search/pr...x?Prod=RC-3680. (2) w/shipping $82.00 or
    - http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc...ntifier=161028. or
    - http://www.meancycles.com/store/part...?partID=216349. Tornado cone style filter


    - http://www.motoleather.com/48-0515.html. Force winder show off cover (flames)
    - http://www.phatperformanceparts.com/...p/5061-100.htm.
    - http://www.bikerperformance.com/forc...its-p4294.html. Forcewinder show off cover (Bad Ass)


    - http://store.knfilters.com/search/pr...Prod=RC-3680DK $21.00 per + tax (K&N dry sock) or
    - http://www.debrix.com/Forcewinder-bl...p/31091-k1.htm $27.99 each +tax (Forcewinder dry sock) or
    - http://www.outerwears.com/proddetail.asp?prod=75598 $16.45 per + tax (colored dry sock)


    - http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_...506.m270.l1313 $299.00 shipping included.
    You may be able to find the spike intake on ebay for less than I paid.

    Approx $423 or less for the entire setup.. Two different looks for the price of one.


    Note: Psycho Moto has 4 sets of Spike Air Cleaner Intake for $179

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Suzuk...ht_2677wt_1054

    That brings the price down to approx $303

    Installation instructions and photos courtesy of Scott109:

    Note: Rod installation... B goes on the left w/ the B on top and connected to the engine. A goes on the right w/ A on the bottom and connected to the engine. The tip of the A points to the engine.

    1st Take the tank off (if you use a long allen the tank removal is not required), Remove the filters and fit away.
    The first adapet will go straight into the exsisting hole of the rubber grommet .Loosen that clamp right off they are tight as a nuns nasty to push on, lube will help.

    Since A and B rods are a tad bit short, you will have to bend the tabs flat on the mounting brackets (this the the pice with the rubber grommet. The tabs are designed to fit between the engine fins but for this install the tabs are not needed.






    Place the Second piece on with gasket



    you will see one hole has no thread on it, This is for the black rod and use the longest bolt and nut with it ,i bent mine the slightest bit as it was against a hose , And just place the other end of the rod onto the bolt that is already there holding the standard bracket.There is spacers provided but you dont need them.

    I took that bracket off and just used that bolt you can see, as the bolt that came with it was to short. the two rods are market A and B, Dont know why, obviously they dont know either or they would have instructions.

    On the right hand side mine wasnt able to go into the rubber grommet like the left side did, I just removed that bracket, just fit the Rod the same as the other side.

    As Bobby mac said they do not sit equal ,the right sticks out further then the left and more forward,So if your Anal forget about them , if not go buy them they look the goodsand for the price you cant go wrong.

    will post pics tomorrow was to dark by the time i finished fitting them up.

    cheers scott

    first picture is the left side see the rod? that bolts to the motor head take out the original mount .




    2nd picture same side differant angle
    i used the exsisting original mount ,just left it there and pushed the stub into the rubber grommet


    now the other side ....same as the other straight into the motor head .

    again same pic differant angle this one kept jumping out of the rubber grommet which held the original air filter on so i put a ball of jb weld on the end of the stub after i pushed it through the hole. it aint going anywhere now.it is a bit hard to see here but do the same as the other side and use the bracket , you might need to reshape them a bit to fit also might need to bend the rods a little . just takes time.




    Dont forget to get rid of the grub screws holding the actual filter spike on,they are useless as **** on a bull.

    i just used a stainless bolt and nut to hold them on.

    I've been running it for two months now... With no issues.

    Lots of other board member are running the spike intake. The only thing I did was to remove the spikes an use the same filter as the force winder kit. I get the look I'm after at a BIG savings.

    It would drive me nuts as well. I love the look from the side! If someone finds a fix for this I would be all over it.

    The one side being lower .. I can fix. But the kit is as designed by force winder and copied by the eBay supplier. The pipes are the same length but because of the design of the bikes main intake and the kit the filter do end up staggered. That doesn't bother me. If you don't like the staggered look and have the money then the tornado kit may be for you.

    With the kit as is I can trade off between the spikes and the K&N filters. And the price was right for me.

    There is a way to fix it but it requires a redesign of the intake hose length under the tank.

    Well installed mines and they went on pretty easy, both sides fit in the rubber holes, only difference is on the right side I used the bottom hole on the motor to mount the black brace, what you all think.

    Looks like the right side is up againts the plastics but its one inch away plenty or room..
