I've actually heard really good things about squidskins, but have never seen their products up close. all of the prices are pretty reasonable. maybe I'll order some rad fins just to see the kind of quality they put out.

keep one thing in mind, that $150 is for the open airbox that seals under the tank and it doesnt work on the sp2 (just got off the phone with the owner of squidskinz) so anyone with an sp2 will need the closed airbox that is shown as $300 on their website for the fiberglass unit.

the tanks may be the same, but the airboxes werent. i know that they had different size throttle bodies, but not sure why else it wouldnt work. as i said i spoke to the owner named James this morning. give him a call the phone number is on the website.

also, one question i didnt ask him, but have been researching; is does the thermostat have to be removed to install the sp2 airbox?

I was under the impression that the thermostat nees to be removed for the Mori or Mori look-a-like airboxes. The Squid Skinz have been around for some time but I haven't heard of anyone on this site thats owned one. The frames are different surrounding the Airbox area for the two models which requires a specific aftermarket (tank sealing) airbox.

If the owner says his unit is for the SP1 only, I would trust that statement.:twocents

I see. I remember the Turnone's being specific. I just couldn't remember why.

Now I know.

I'd like to see that SP2 airbox in action. Who's running the Moriwaki one? Got pics?

thats right, the owner of squidskinz told me just that... the frames are different.

iirc it's the fitment for the frame vs engine component location according to T1

It's been a month, man. Any news?
So I finally received the SquidSkins SP2 airbox.
This is based on the Moriwaki airbox.
The airbox I ordered is fiberglass (unless C-F is requested). The color is just black paint.
I didn't care for the cover latch method, so I removed them.
I will be installing a couple of spring-loaded draw latches instead.

Here are some photos of the airbox.
