No filter pictured here so I could verify that the rear portion of the airbox seals against the top of the tank.
I had a LED light behind the tank, I could not see any light inside the airbox through the intake with the tank bolted down.
So a perfect seal all around. Air filter is a paper panel filter with rubber border, seen in previous pictures.
The first bottom section I am molding is a " Race version " as it is a large volume airbox designed for use with a thermostat delete.
The second version I am doing is the " street version " and allows the use of the OEM thermostat, like the previous T1 - now DHC open top airbox kits.
The first production unit of the street version is already spoken for.
just curious and thought about this for a while, why don't we just use pod filters directly on the throttle bode/velocity stacks? That was the setup I used on my 2000 sv650 with a lifted front tank about an extra 3/4" to help with airflow in. Seems it would save much more weight and no air box needed.
The answer to my own question that I can come up with is maybe too much heat and or no filter will fit? any ideas or clarification.

Do these bikes have chips in the keys that need to be programed or can I just get a blank made for RC51s and get it cut to my bike at a locksmith?
I've had a request for dimensions etc from another member so they could build an engine stand. So I've drawn it up so anyone can build one. Enjoy!
And NO, I will not be making or selling them. I'm sure some enterprising Chinese people will have them available on Ebay in about an hour from...

Finally checked the RC-51 off my bucket list with a recent purchase of a nice 04' NH Edition. It doesn't have the Woody / AMA decals and the PO told me that the original owner asked the dealer not install them (he only wanted the tank decal...thought the...
