I've always been a big fan of the hypercharger look and this just further solidifies that belief. Great job. Did you mod your pipes and if so what did you do?

Great job, pix and video. Could you share with us the install process. I am very interested in the "How To". Thanks in advance.

Looks great. How did you modify the left one and the drain hole issue? I believe the hyper charger is only made for the right hand side of the bike thus the left on is upside down? I am sorry but have been weighing in between these and a big air set up. And just want to know all challenges before i start.

Yeah Gene,how about a little info. :bigthumbsup:
It's not too difficult. You use the old mounting brackets from the stock air intake. If you can get ahold of the Hypercharger body your good to go. You don't need the Kuyrakyn mounting brackets stuff, but you do need to make a trip to Home Depot for longer mounting bolts, spacers, and vacuum hoses. You also need a section of flex air intake tube from Pep Boys ($18.00).

P.M. Me if your interested in doing it. I can talk you through it.

The backrest is a aftermarket Victory backrest. You have to bend the bracket a little to make it work, but it fits snug without any mounting hardware. It greatly reduces back ache.

The left side is upside down. You can either 1) not ride in the rain, or 2) drill another drain hole on the bottom. I personally not mind the look of the left one with the top exposed. Your choice.

Of all the ones out there I think (Just my opinion) that this is the best looking set-up. Performance also seems to be much better than stock. It uses an air filter approximately the same size at the "Big-Air."

What about performace. Don't quote me on this, but I believe that Lamont indicated that these weren't much for #'s.....just looks.

Can you hook us up with the source for your backrest? You say it is an aftermarket Victory, but which manufacturer. This looks EXACTLY like what I am looking for. My big a$$ keeps sliding backward on this beast!

I think we need a Step by Step on both these mods. :bigthumbsup: :doorag: :super:

Looks like you did some great work, very impressive. I also prefer the look of the hyperchargers to any other style air cleaner. I have contacted Kuryakyn and they replied with regards to the 109. They are scheduled to be released in spring of next year. If they look as good as what you have modded, I will be very happy :D :bigthumbsup:
