Are you not going to straighten out the air intake/filter path too? When you are done, let us know what you have done and how it all works out. Thanks!

What would be really nice is a list of things changed, the costs, work in process and finished bike pics and riders report of the post modded bike - on performance, driveability and FE impacts. I would certainly appreciate that a lot.

hey mumbiker, just a suggestion instead of using K&N 1100 you can use E0900 which is a direct fit in the airfilter box and moreover saves the filter from rains and slush and if you are installing a K&N you'll have to upjet the carb. All the best.

Nickoo, thanks for your suggestion. I will check that out the E-0900 as i feel thats a good option for the wet weather prevalent now. Though the K&N would be the option for higher air intake in drier weather. Upjetting should not be an issue. I like the look of the R1100 too

THey even included a bill in the box which was about 25-30% less than what I paid for it. Good choice if they have something you cant find in your city.

I tested the Goldstart (short goldie) last night. I found the initial pickup to be a little on the higher side. I did this because I had gotten into an argument with one the fellow bikers regarding the "increased pickup with goldie or short goldie"! Is it because of its shape giving more thrust? I still fail to understand the reasons. The beat was a meatier: they had put glass wool and some how I liked it. But I still like my std 350 fit on the bike rather than the stock which I removed long back. Thinking of shifting to short goldie .
