Not sure how much it helps,but sure can't hurt it seeing that the euro versions are this way stock. Probably EPA noise related.

I might have to go down to the old stealership and pick up one of these "euro airbox's" if it's not to expensive.

It doesn't have a part number. its part of the Sharkskinz Kit superbike bodywork (Hayes stuff). You have to get someone to call them to have them made. Not sure if they'd do just that piece or not. I honestly don't think it would help much unless you get the larger ram air tubes which then requires the superbike upper.

I contacted sharkskinz and this is the reply I got


Hi,
It is called a plenum and I understand that it's quite involved to get it installed. We don't have instructions because we made it for the Yamaha race team and they do the installing. It is available to sell, though, and will cost $250.00. You will also need the race upper $340.00, and the snorkels $230.00. You will need to remove the throttle bodies to install - somewhat of a complicated task overall. It is not designed for street use.

Thanks,
Mary

I have ordered the plenum and it will be here next week. Will order one piece at a time. Winter time project. It looks more time consuming than anything else but definately will be worth it.

Do a write up on this install, otherwise I will pass on this mod. My race exhaust seems to work just fine on the street, lol.

sweet...I think you will need to tilt the motor forward to get it in as well...

And you'll have to do the same to change spark plugs as the plenum will be in the way

I painted the plenum flat black haha. As for the person saying it only looks good.

The plenum is the superbike plenum the ones used on the superbikes. Look carefully as it flows way more air. Combined with more fuel = more hp

The plenum will not work with the stock intakes. You have to get the superbike ram air tubes and bodywork for everything to work perfect. Will be getting the tubes next in the next couple weeks.

Will post the tubes up when I get them

The motor will not have to be tilted but the whole airbox assembly has to come off to do this mod. I will be changing the plugs at the same time
