induct/power filter install

Just bought an InDuct(?) and power filter kit from San Jose BMW. Getting the plastic snorkel unit on has me scratching my head. Very tight against the battery. Looks like the battery has to be pushed forward a little. Don't want to break anything. The instructions don't address the tight fit. Any install tips/observations appreciated.

I have this set-up..it will fit, just ease it on. You might want to add an adhesive-backed rubber pad in a couple of spots to keep the inside of the bodywork from getting too scratched-up from rubbing on the snorkel. You might also want to trim off excess flashing near the airbox area.

Noticed that, didja
It's TOO tight. I just got done making a custom battery box/mount that moves the battery down and forward by appx. 2". That lets me craft a custom large duct with a much straighter shot into the filter. I'm using a SJ powerfilter assembly with the snorkel I made fitting onto the top of the SJfilter base..it looks almost exactly like a cylinderhead intake tract and I can shove my arm all the way down the duct to touch the filter. When it's totally complete I'llpost pix..I call it 'uberschnorkel'..this is the second iteration, this one made of 'glass instead of cobbled up out of sheetmetal and flexiduct.

WOW....your whole arm?! Good thing you've got a PCIII, otherwise that sucker would be running REALLY lean.

Let us know how it works out. I'm a fiberglass junkie, and would be interested in how you go about it.

InDuct is a specific product name. (the one Lennie manufs and markets)
You have the plastic SJBMW piece, which is a pretty darn tight fit.

If I could find a rubber compound flexible enough to pull out of the inside of the schnorkel after it set up I could build a plug but I don't want to cut up the finished product to make the plug I need to make the mold...the mold would have to be multi-part, which I can handle.
I'm open to suggestions.

Roger is right, I misspoke. The InDuct is totally separate from San Jose BMW. Anyway, got it put in place after I figured out that the drilled holes on the plastic snorkel didn't match up precisely with the aluminum power filter holes. After I re-drilled them to match, it went into place, but very tight. I hope the $400+ was worth it (snorkel, power filter, snorkle tip). Also added some Wunderlich swing-arm covers, which should make the bike run at least 10mph faster. Plus, my new Cee Bailey's dark smoke windshield adds about 5hp.

SJBMW induct is also carbon fiber. This is true of the snorkel too.

Not only is the induct tight fitting around the tank, it pushes the left side body panals out of alignment. The snorkel in the front also pushes out the body panel. At full right hand lock of the front end, the snorkel hits the fender.

I noticed an increase in induct noise. Earplugs all the time now. The left panal vibrates enough to be noticable. It runs a little better. Someone said they were getting second gear power wheelies (bull****).

Just dont expect to much out of this setup. Don't associate noise with power.

Why not?

Harley riders do

Lennie's induct slides right into place. A little chaffing here and there but nothing to speak about.

+1

My Lennies InDuct fits damn prefect. Yeah it rubbs on the body panel but dosent make it out of line, nor does it contact the fender or any other moving parts. It also fits perfectly with the SJ Powerfilter!

Jclark has it right. I remembered the SJ product was a cheaper material than CF, but incorrectly called it plastic instead of fiberglass.

I put some adhesive backed foam, on my side panel to keep it from marking the carbon fiber on my induct, where it barely touches in one spot... other than that, perfect fit.

True, I meant fiberglass but it came out carbon fiber. Definitely not plastic. Both of my pieces have been sold so I'm back to the original plastic.

Try Devcon Flexane products - it's a two-part urethane rubber available in a variety of durometer ratings in "brushable", "castable", and "trowelable" thicknesses. I've used it for molding small "bumpers" under fuel tanks, etc and for sealing the spoke nipples on my supermoto to run tubeless.

cool, i like new product info.
i used pieces of adhesive backed cell foam and rubber gasket material on just the hot spots where it rubs...this helps keep down those vibration noises

I had to have my wife pick mine up while shopping in Tulsa - I live in a small town in eastern OK. Their website has a searchable distributer list. It's not cheap - enough to do one pair of wheels on my KTM was about $100US with cleaner and prep. Good stuff, though - in three years as my favorite street toy neither wheel has ever lost air. GE also makes a castable rubber, but the only one I've ever seen was red.

i just bought the ducts from lowery.

am kind of pissed to realize they're not cf.

took about an hour to install. 90% of that was spent stripping off the plastics, and looking for allen wrenches. only had time for a once around the block before dark. it sounds nice, but havn't got a real feel for it yet.
