Just wanted to say Thanks to all those who offered help getting me back on the road with a good map.:notworthy

The Turn One parts all fit perfectly. Thanks Brett!

I weighed all of the stock parts, airbox,pair valve etc and with removing the tool kit it was 13lbs removed. The Turn One parts I installed were very light. I'm thinking I dropped around 11.5 lbs easy.

Very noticeable increase in midrange power and a increase in idle noise. Sounds even better than before.

In all my years of turning wrenches on different vehicles this was by far the best experience I have ever had. It's almost as if the old girl was helping me out herself.:clapper

Is your bike used with track bodywork or OEM upper cowl?
I ask because I have a T-O snorkel and it will not fit using the OEM cowl and headlights.
Also, does your snorkel inlet match the dimensions of the OEM upper cowl opening? Mine is much larger height-wise than the cowl inlet.

Did you buy this TurnOne Carbon Intake direct from me?
All the intakes I've supplied in recent years will fit up to OEM Upper fairing,dash cluster mounts and headlight arrangment with out any mods or cutting required.
Got any pics of the Intake you have?

Cheers , Brett

Hi Brett.
No I didn't buy direct from you, but through Scotts Motorcycle Service who advertised them as your product name.
I also bought the airbox, and I do have to say they both are really nice.

Here are some photos of the snorkel for you.

Well you're doing something wrong. Mine is exactly like urs and it works better with the stock cowl and lights then my race bodywork.

So when you installed yours, and lined up the upper cowl bolt with mounting hole, did it wedge your headlights apart, or did it just fall into place?

Mine is all OEM. Everything fit back together fine.

Well now I'm puzzled more.
When I was trying a test fit, the more I tried to push the snorkel down (in order to align the mounting bolt) the more the snorkel was forcing the headlights apart.
If I probably forced the two into alignment, either the headlights would eventually wear holes in the snorkel via vibration, or the upper cowl would develop stress cracks.

Here's a photo showing the snorkel pinched between the headlights.
Note that that the snorkel still needs to move lower to align the mount bolt hole. I was just unwilling to force it.

May be a reflection or possilbly the side of the Carbon Intake is not spread over the inside plastic inlet return combing on the OEM upper.

If so,you need to reach inside the Carbon Intake to slightly spread it and fit it over the inlet lip and slide it hard up against the inside of the upper fairing, hope all that makes some sense ?

Did you get fitting info with the part ?

email me if you didn't and I'll get a copy to you

Kind regards , Brett

mine fits just as good as the oem one did

So for yours, there was no force involved to fit it between the headlights to align the upper cowl bolt?
And the only effort required was to spread the snorkel to fit over the upper cowl intake combing?
If so, then there is something different with mine then.
I'm in discussion with Brett to try and figure this out.

I have to spread the inside of the intake a little on one side, like Brett said, but it fits easily other then that.

Ok I see what you are saying. I do have contact on one side between the headlight and the snorkle which I didn't notice before. Hopefully it won't wear a hole. The Upper Fairing Center Set Screw isn't aligned exactly perfectly with the mounting hole in the top of the snorkle. (snorkle needs to move down) . I just removed the windshield and forced it together. I didn't tighten it down all the way tight. I did just snug it up hopefully to avoid a stress crack like you mentioned. I just assumed for a after market part this was pretty much the excepted fit and finish.

I measured the distance at the point where the snorkel presses on the headlights and it was 90mm.
The snorkel at this point (about 70mm from the front of the snorkel) flares out to about 100-105mm, so it tries to displace the headlights by this amount. If it was pinched in just a bit at this point there would be no contact and it would fit fine.
As you can tell from the photo, there's plenty of clearance elsewhere.

I'd be interested in Brett's opinion on the contact with the snorkle. I do have contact on both side exactly as you described SubSailor. I'll take off the front end after a few months and see if there is any wear and post on this thread.

The slight sqeeze in this area is not really a big issue as the side of the Intake will flex in a few mm to allow a firm fit between the headlights, this also offers some support to the sides of the headlights as the plactic pins at the rear of the headlight is no longer in use with the Carbon Snorkel.

The pressure on the side of the Intake at this point is not a great deal, the plastic molding on the headlght casing may slightly scuff the clear in this area but will not wear through the carbon, if this is a concern to anyone they can place a couple of layers of crash tape or 3mm adhersive rubber on the headlights and/or Intake at this point to save any cosmetic damage.

I would be interested to here any feedback good,bad or indifferent on the quality and fit of the current model Mk2/Gen 2 Carbon Intake.

Kind Regards , Brett

Thanks for your input on the snorkle fit Brett.

My Mk2/Gen 2 Carbon Intake fit like a glove! Absolutely perfect. I was very pleased.:twocents
