K&N for my '88 Gixxer 750

OK, this might be a silly question, but I think I'm alotted a couple as a noobie, right? :lol:

Anyway, I was thinking of replacing the stock airbox & filter with the twin K&N's. Has anyone done this, and found it a worthwhile mod?

Sorry I don't have pics of my bike online yet, but probably this weekend, since I'll have all my fairings repaired & can test fit them before painting 8)

Oh, and by the way - thanx in advance for the advice! :wink:

The jetting should keep it from "popping".
Most likely not. You guys . . .

Use a 4 x 4 filer kit (4 individual filters). Once the bike is jetted, get it to a REPUTABLE dyno shop (one that tunes racebikes) and get it set up right. Plan on spending about $250 for that.

Food for thought: with the '88/89s, many tuners found the bikes ran BETTER when the airbox was left on. Especially w/a basically stock motor. You might want to experiment a bit with the settings. If you can sweet talk that dyno shop, try some runs with and w/o the stock airbox to see which setup makes the most power, and to see where the torque curve is.

Back to the job hunting. Suzuki is releasing this:

So, I need to keep rolling on my networking and contacts here. I want to get one of those. House is about done as well.
