there is a huge following for riders who want something different.
I'm still awaiting just 1 member of the "huge following" of pod users to offer feedback here. Notta 1.
I disagree with the statement...IMHO reality dictates it's a very small minority of owners who remove the airbox and accept the known consequences.
You're even admitting (i'm quoting your above post) "will pods give the bike more power "nope" will they make the bike run smoother "nope" just the opposite. But that is not the point. once the box has gone the goal is to get it running well enough to ride."
So WHY remove the box to begin with? Wow, bordering on masochism. I'm not seeing the logic in subjecting ones self to this.
I'm submitting, for a EX to ride NOW
, run as intended, reliably, and pile on miles...airbox removal negatives far outweigh the benefits.
Exceptions would include custom, show bikes....for perceived visual benefits, riding not the primary objective.
Hey, its your bike, free to do as you like. Just be aware of + and - before going in.
Thats where the OP finds himself now, employing ideas and info from others to ease and simplify his quest.
Interesting that hes's not sharing HIS information...the seller and specific jetting contents in his purchased kit, thus shielding himself from comment there. Hey, its a 2 way street, no?
I'm done...yielding to all the POD users..chime in!
