    And that is why I have Autotune. My check is on the way, Todd.

    Thanks NG, I'd have to argue that this is probably the best bang for the buck, both in power and sound.

    Very sharp looking installation. What kind of hp & torque improvement would I see with the lid, a PC-V and Guzzitech meg on my 1200 Sport? I'll bet it would sound terrific.

    Re: GT-Rx CNC airbox lid

    John, the dyno graph below was the result of removing the air-box lid from a 1064cc engine, and it was a big part of a 11 hp total increase... I suspect the same for the 1200's. Perhaps this Winter I'll have the time & energy to spend on the dyno. Allan here dyno'ed his Sport 1200 with a Quat-D slip-on, but we didn't get any full throttle runs from it.

    that is one pretty looking lid gents!

    if you've spent the cash on the PCV set up, this lid is a MUST I would think. more air is more gooder.

    Re: GT-Rx CNC airbox lid

    Had a quick look this arv to see what might be involved in getting started at the install.

    I notice that there are no mounts on the new aid box lid for this thing. I recon keeping it will require fabrication of some mounts, as looking at it I am sure it will vibrate excessively without some support. Not hard just needs a couple of simple brackets.

    BUT - What does it do? Can I remove it?

    Would be good to remove it, as I would like to use the space for my HID igniters.

    Re: GT-Rx CNC airbox lid

    I wouldn't 't go there, That's your engine air breather box and it is needed. No fabrication needed as it is supported by the hose's, specifically the large diameter one on the bottom. It wont move. I suppose if it will make you happy you can tie wrap it through the unused mounting screw holes.

    I'm interested for a 1200 Sport, what fuel revisions would suffice?

    Re: GT-Rx CNC airbox lid

    How much more induction sound is produced? I would love the extra torque but I dont think I would like the induction roar very much.

    I can't comment on the 1200 sport but can tell you on the Norge the induction noise at a steady throttle is hardly noticeable until you grab a handful of throttle and that aint all that bad ! :mrgreen:

    Re: GT-Rx CNC airbox lid

    Thank you Todd-
    Your airbox lid works super on my Norge!
    With the other modes already done (Mistral muffler + ECU-swap) this upgrade make the most boosts.
    Nice soundeffect to, I barely can’t stop riding today.

    Re: GT-Rx CNC airbox lid

    Nice machine work, I can see the advantages clearly. I have to questions. In the reply posts I noticed two terms I am not clear on, do you mind telling more?
    First: ARV what is it?

    Second: the PVC mod what is it and do you have pics? I understand how the pvc works as I own an American V twin, No, Indian. The pvc change for it was the greatest single thing I could have done.

    Thanks

    Re: GT-Rx CNC airbox lid

    Arv is Aussie slang for morning I believe.

    I'm confused a bit on your second question, as you seem to have answered it yourself... so assuming you mean PC-V (Power Commander 5), all details for the custom run are here; https://www.guzzitech.com/forum/160/3792.html

    Re: GT-Rx CNC airbox lid

    Thanks for the ARV meaning. I was reading PCV as an positive crankcase valve not as a power commander V.

    Bear with me as I try to learn new terms.

    ARV = arvo = slang for afternoon. Don't have slang for morning because we're always snakes hissed.
