With a sharp edged orifice, if the incoming air does not have about 10 straight pipe diameters upstream and downstream of the orifice, the flow thru it is less than a smooth inlet & outlet like the snorkel provides...also..as noted...they make noise....therefore, I'd like some dyno data to tell me removing the snorkle makes power and not just noise. I'm betting on holes in my air box lid...and besides, I don't mess with nasty water crossings.

Finally figured out how to upload photos



Riding the gravel roads out Raglan way, sheepskin on seat is nice but not really necessary. Still working on how to post large photos like others have...sooo much easier to just add an attachment- but that is not allowed for some reason?

It was only flat on the bottom

Having fun today blasting through some lingering snow, it hit nearly 50 degrees here. Fun, until I realized I had a flat front tire, dang. Rode it home, with my arse as far back as I could get onto the Manrack, and still reach the bars, and went maybe 20 mph. Had the Supertramp, "Take the long way home", going through my head, maybe 7-8 miles. Turning is quite an experience, in that situation, last thing I wanted was the tire coming off the rim, then I'm screwed. So that became my excuse to mount the TUbliss on there, went pretty smooth, never did one before. I did have to go back out for Slime. I wasn't planning on doing it till later, so I didn't have wheel weights, those ones that go over the spokes, to compensate for the rim lock. Too late to take it for a ride today, tomorrow will get weights. Actually, I watched the "how to" video, already, but watched it again, and it went well. You can't use soapy water, if you are going to run slime, so I slathered the crap out of all the contact points with Armor All. Boy did the first beer taste good! The rear should be a piece of cake, now. I read on one of the forums where a guy was lubing his chain, and noticed thorns sticking out of his tire, and he just pulled them out, and the slime sealed it. If you get a larger screw or something, just use the "Caterpillar" tire plugs. Airing waaaay down is no problem with these.

Thanks Ed,
I still am letting Tracin decide what is the right way to do this since he has the experience and know how.
I will be sure to post what he did with my airbox.
Here in Nebraksa we have lots of mud and water to deal with in the spring and fall months.
Once again ... thanks for the follow up !!!

Kiwi5, you asked why some pics that are posted here are large, I don't know why mine take up a full page when I post them, but they do, I use Photobucket and pull all my pics form My Pictures on my computer, that is any pics I want to post I first put the pics in My Pictures and pull them from there and put into Photobucket. Then all I do is click on the photo in Photobucket and hit the Img. button and copy. Then when in my Reply on the forum I hit Paste and there it is when I hit Submit Reply Button. I would think is has something to do with what size the pics are stored in My Pictures on the computer, but don't know for sure. I'm sure someone can answer your question as to why some are large and some are small when they post pics.

J I tried with you picture to copy it and send it to My Pictures on my computer, but it still came out smaller, must have something with the picture sizing, but I'm lost on this. John

Thanks for that info, I will go back to my photo bucket account and do some more fiddling around......meanwhile I am planning another visit to Tongariro National Park area with "Recon 1". Do a search on YouTube for "42nd traverse" that is one of the tracks I am doing.

not enough ADV server space to allow attachments

as trainman said, the size of the photo posted here depends on the resolution/size of the photo when you take it.

You used to be able to easily have Photobucket change the size as an Upload setting but they took that away in the new version. I hate the new Photo*ucket. Now, you have to edit EACH PIC to change its size.

Increasing the size of the resolution setting on your camera should give you larger pictures. Or, like many I suspect, investigate a different upload service. Lots of folk here use SmugMug, which I see lots of discount codes for here in various sigs.

cheers

My Farkles waiting for the delivery so far..

So here is my list that I'm waiting impatiently for delivery!

- Flatland SkidPlate
- Flatland Radiator Guard
- ManRacks Utility Rack
- ProTaper CR High Bend HandleBars
- Rox Pivoting Risers 2"
- ProTaper RED Square Bar Pad
- ProTaper Pillow Top Grips
- Pro Grip Lever Covers / Red
- Cycra Pro Bend Kit with Front Mount Triple Clamp / White
- Symtec Heat Demon Heated Grips
- SHOWA Upper Fork Decals
- Uni AirBox Wents (6 Pack)
- 12 oClock Labs DRC 2 Edge Tail Light Kit (Red)
- DRC 602 Type Turn Signals 2 Pairs (Clear)
- Fixed Rate Turn Flasher Relay
- FMF Q4 Exhaust (from Harcoone)
- FMF Megabomb Header (from Best Dual Sport Bikes)
- Pre Programmed Fuel Programmer (from Best Dual Sport Bikes)

I will go with the top three holes on the side (out of six), and the three on the top cover for the air box as modifications. (assuming this will give me more safety margin for moderate water crossings)

I will wait for the 13t sprocket until I felt the need as the bike seams ok performance wise to me, plus it will probably become much much better with the FMF and Fuel Programmer kit

Pictures will come once I have everything!!

I'd be more worried about the wiring and the fact it probably goes through the switch vs a headlight relay. That's quite a big jump from stock. If you want more light, I'd be more inclined to wire in some LED Spots/floods depending on your need. 10w LED's make a nice difference.

Hey, it's only $93, see if it melts, and if it doesn't let us know: http://www.hondapartshouse.com/oempa...211d/headlight

Looking for some more off road orientated tires especially the rear but I'm having trouble finding them in the stock size. Anybody experiment with different sizes yet?
