why not mount K&N filter pods (or Unis) directly on the carbs and ditch the airbox?

interesting project. i've thought about doing the same thing a few times myself, most recently on wednesday. do you have a thread going detailing to project?

My jet kit came with pods and I hope I have room for them under the TA tank.
I am concerned with fouling the filters and I'm thinking that if I can start with a suitable base pan I could use something like a 5"x10" oval element and possibly duct the in coming air from above the rads on each side.

To realize the potential afforded by the engine mods a lot of airflow will be needed.

It does not look like there is much room under there to work with and I want to see what other options are available.

I post updates to the project in the TA thread for now.

Thanks!

Bad idea for a bike that you will be taking off pavement.

In Italy a couple of guys did work a lot on it but all thay get was a loss of power and a worse behaviour of the bike . And thay are pro.

Thanks for the link gpmucci! I'm going to be contacting them about my new project.

I wonder why they don't show a pic of their light/insturment brackets.

They are just starting.
You can ask about Emiliano, he's a friend, and the owner of a beautiful AT.

Operation CR Kayaba fork has started. just to remind you, Im fitting up a 96 CR250 front end to my AT


The CR stem is 4mm bigger in diameter than the AT stem

Original CR stem



Machined down to fit the AT bearings



Cutting the threads for the nuts



Done and the AT nuts fit, excellent





The stem will be pressed back into the triple clamps tomorrow, then Ive just got to wait till the forks come back from being revalved and sprung and we can bolt it onto the bike and sort out the steering stops and a plate to mount the ignition and sort out some sort of front mudguard.

Jim, what did you do with your ignition switch / steering lock when you fitted up the CR forks ?? and what did you use for a front guard ??
