Hello, this is my first post and of course I am asking for assistance. I have bought a 2001 Lightning X1 that I will be using mostly for drag racing. I have raced Sportster and full on drag bikes but wanted to stick with the American made bikes that are not heavy and slow so I went with the Buell. When I was cruising the posts I came across a DIY to build an air intake which included a parts list and instructions. If anyone can direct me to this post I sure would appreciate it. BTW- I am located in AZ so if you have parts or suggestions let me know. Thanks, Eric

The Google search bar on BOTTOM of this page works much much better than the search tool up top. The Google search bar on bottom of page only searches this site.

Team Flash, welcome to the Forum!

Actually, no; please don't post identical duplicate threads in different sections. Instead just decide what one section it should go in, and leave it at that.

If you're getting no responses, you can bump it up (post to it to bring it to the top of the 'Active Threads' list); and if it's in the wrong section, ask a mod to move it.

Steve, I am in San Tan Valley just south of Queen Creek. I go to Cave Creek from time to time on my Road Glide. Maybe we can hook up and talk bikes.

I built my own.
Are you just looking for an inake manifold?

I am looking at the Air Filter and unit much like the Forcewinder Intake. Thanks

Here is a link that you might find helpful.



The best air filter assembly out there in my opinion is the 3 inch one NRHS or Hammer sells. Even if you had a full machine shop, I don't think it would be worth the trouble to try to duplicate it. For a full on Drag bike a velocity stack is cheaper and will be hard to beat when it comes to power.
