    The mt07 is a fantastic bike! Sound so tough with an exhaust.

    Imgur ahoy! (Holy resolution batman).

    Pics of the process to replace the airbox with the FZ07 item, as well as fitting the K&N air filter and modifying the intake snorkel.






    Cut the bottom part of the snorkel off as it creates a torturous path - I think it was mainly there for acoustics as removing it changed the intake sound of the engine a fair bit.


    Stock LAMS airbox vs unrestricted item.

    And done.

    nice, I cut the bottom off my MT09 airbox and definitely makes some good induction noises.

    any plans to upgrade once your on opens?

    Any idea what diameter those throttle bodies are?

    Don't worry, ggogle fu indicates 38mm.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    The LAMS airbox knocks the intake down to about 30mm, the full opening is a bit over 40mm so a fair difference.
    Definitely increased power output, very noticeable.

    I've still got 2.75 years on LAMS. That's a long way in the future.

    Thanks a lot new licencing system....

    The link I found suggested it was worth 10 hp at the back hoop - up to 64hp from 54hp (with filter/pipe etc).
    Throttle body opening was 42mm, the diameter at the butterfly is 38mm.

    Assume that's the ECUWest article?
    I used that as a guide.
    Only thing left for me is the tune - might try and get someone local to do it though.

    OK so small update.
    Installed a HM Quick Shifter, I can now make MotoGP style noises on shifts.

    Took the bike to the strip. Leaving the line very softly (I need to harden up) it ran 12.50@107mph. Over 5 runs the trap speed was within 2-3kmh so it is consistent. Started out at 13.09 and improved each run. It half tracks well but only puts on 25-26kmh in the back half, so it just doesn't have the power like the bigger bikes/non-LAMS versions. I ran against the same bike on my last run, he easily 60'd me by .15 so there should be a low 12 in it.

    Still had fun though. Next step, Phillip Island. I'm currently modifying a newly acquired bike trailer to transport it there.

    Cool bike...

    Nice one, PI will be awesome if the weather treats you well, otherwise I reckon it would be scary as fuck (but still awesome!).

    I'll post up some snaps of the old bike trailer I'm modifying for this once I'm done.
