Ktm performance air box lid
« on: April 24, 2013, 09:47:36 pm »
In two minds regarding the airbox mods that I have seen online, most complain about major noise problems although all say performance is increased, mentioned this to Brenton at autocycles and he gave me his ktm performance airbox lid to try out, ;D
Fitted it tonight and will give it a test ride tomorrow, if it works really well I'll buy one, easy enough to swap back to stock for the longer trips,

Also picked up my mitas E09 wow mean looking rubber!

Got the Uni Filter.

Well took the long way to work this morning, and Faaaarkkkk Stakes!

It sounds as mean as a bulldog eating wasps. Deep throaty roar from between your legs, Not very noticeable when cruising on minimal throttle so should be ok for longer trips.
as for performance there is a definite increase in power especially at higher rpm, Slight up hill + slight bump in the road = front wheel in the air in 6th,  :biggrin:

only negative is its now even more fun to ride it like I stole it!

Hmmm.

Jules it's getting so that each time I see a post from you my wallet starts cringing cos I then end up wanting the same mod! :)
Please stop it already. You're bad for my economic well being.

By the way - I got my Wings exhaust and fitted it the other day. It's top class for sure! Glad I got it. Now to see if it goes the distance.

Pinch the bike between your knees and move your weight as far forward as you can. Extended screens aggravate it as they lift the front,
Also try locking one arm and relaxing the other

Yea. Im sure it will. Thing is the ktm part has a pre filter to help keep the main filter clean,  and for 300 ronts its relay not that bad

An added advantage of the Performance airbox is that you now have place for your toolbag !! :laughing4:

Hey Jules,

I am trying to hunt down one of those performance lids for my bike.

Do you have a part number for me as my dealer is not able to source it.

It does fit with the standard paper filter element, albeit tightly, which is what you want to have a good tight fit against the rubber of the filter element to keep dust out.
The performance filter box lid does a considerably better job of pre filtering the air than the stock air box lid. This will lead to longer filter life.

The KTM Instructions coming with the performance filter lid say that it should be used in conjunction with Akropovic pipe (FMF is an equivalent here) and the bike MUST be given the Akro pipe remap.

So far, I have not done the Akro remap but just did the 15 minute idle and then ignition off map rewrite.
Bike runs like a dream, with an extra pony or 2 under the new airbox lid :biggrin:

Yes, I would like to try a K&N type air filter element, it can only help things.
