I'm guessing they take the mirrors off for the aesthetics/photo shoot, as there's no blanking screws in the mirror holes..

Spotted this when researching air box removal.
Is that the huge black thing perched under the tank? I want to do the same mod on mine after seeing it on one of the Rough Crafts XSR's at a show last month but I'm reluctant to touch it without knowing what else is dependant on it!

Please keep me posted if you find any instructions :D

Removing the airbox is annoying. They first created the airbox and built the bike around the bloody thing. It does come out but at a certain angle only.

Some report it runs fine without a tune but I would be hesitant to do that to a new engine. Be prepared to tune the bike, especially if you already have an exhaust fitted. The tune part is what has kept me from doing it at this stage. Airbox removal and removing the throttle restrictor (Australian model) will really throw out the tune.

Interesting, about the best info i've read/found so far.

As for the tune from what I understand any aftermarket filter will require a power commander or ECU flash. In two minds on the 'gaping hole and filter' mod as for now will be keeping the bike shape closer to stock than the yard builds and not sure how it would look.

I may just have to take the bike apart to see what it looks like (will post pics if I do). Thereafter it's a debate, is the PCV5 and aftermarket filter worth the cost??!!!

(lol, yes i know it most likely is,but at a cost of 5-6 hundred pounds and the future resale value is never far from the back of my mind. Along with suspension mods and R6 throttle tubes :D).

I like the look of said 'gaping hole' goes well in my head and trying to get a cafe racer esq look to it.

If you did that and a quick remap should be about 250-300 tops
