Intake System and Inferno Cover
This is a picture of the Inferno theme air filter cover by Custom Chrome. There was a goodly amount of work performed to install this cover... The cover diameter is somewhat different than the OEM cover. The rear housing was cut down to match the diameter of the filter. A new center support was fabricated to accomodate the lesser depth of the new cover, and a thinner air filter was installed. LoRidr always commented about the OEM filter housing bumping against her knee, so this allowed for a much slimmer air filter arrangement.
This is another picture of the completed conversion. The air filter now draws fresh air in around the entire perimeter of the filter cover. The carb was rejetted with a #175 main jet, a #52 pilot jet, the stock needle was used with NO shims, and the pilot screw was set to 1 turn from closed. The bike runs like a dragster, and still gets about 56-58 mpg... has even done better than 60mpg on long trips! This bike has 'spanked' every 800 it has locked up with on the road, and several 1500's.
Air Filter Info: Several people have asked about the filter I used in this modification. It is available from Car Quest, and is usually located in the parts section for Lawn Mowers and Garden Tractors. It is manufactured by Prime Line, and is part # 7-02235. It replaces a Kohler 47-083-01. The dimensions are: 1 3/4" thick, 7" O.D., and 5 1/2" I.D. . The filter works great, has no problem adequately cleaning the air, and flows more than enough for the engine's requirements.
If you don't
need to use the thinner filter and move the cover closer to the bike,
it's a really easy job. Cut the backing plate to match the filter OD,
These days, there are lots of intakes for the 800 to choose from...from Hyperchargers nd Prochargers, to Tornado and Hurricane systems, teardrop and S&S style air cleaners and more. You can see lots of these at Scootworks' Intake Page.
