So anyone else thinking about this mod? I put one on my buddy's v-star 1100 and it looked sweet!! I want to do it more for looks than performance.


Thunder manufacturing is looking for volunteers so they can make an adapter kit for the m109R....any violunteers?

I had one on my Mean Streak originally and hated it.
On the Kaw it hung out too far made me feel like I was riding sidesaddle.
Don't know if it is an issue for the 109.
The hypercharger may not flow enough air for our bikes either.
Personally I'd rather use something else than a recognised Harley part and be individual.
Just my opinion of course but they do look cool.

seeing that pic of our stock air intake, something like this will probably help out. i'm curious how far out it would stick out. our bike is pretty wide as-is.

It would be nice is someone can take advantage of the true intake potential in this thing. I removed the tank last night and got my first up-close look at the airbox... damn, that thing is HUGE. It could suck the air out of a zeppelin with the right setup.

2 short curved velocity stacks that point straight ahead and dont stick out any further than the fattest part of the tank with a KN cone type filter on each end.
The amount of air this motor needs is hard to comprehend, and a big pipe to get rid of it.

One of the things that will define this bike is the amount of power to be gained by uncorking it and remapping it.

Where are they located? It can't go out to much further, because she is wide enough now.

I'm not sure how much more it would stick out compared to other bikes, but The Hypercharger isn't very thick at all. If I remember correct it's about 2 1/2 " thick ( ballpark) plus the adapter.........

Well I think going to Arizona is out of the question.
