    Im working on it. There are no instructions or videos, only photos and a part number for the filters.
    I have about 30 photos I need go through and pick out the ones that are useful. All the information was previously easily accessible on the StarVmax site that went down.

    How are these filters cleaned being permanently glued in place?

    They are attached to the top part of the 2 piece air box which comes off after removing some screws.

    Just a couple of things to keep in mind when you attack this project. These filters come coated with oil when new. When you are ready to bond them to the filter box, make sure you clean the surface around the edge of the filter and opening in the air box you will be applying the "Right Stuff" to. Use an automotive brake parts cleaner to remove ALL oil and residue or the silicone will not stick.
    When the air box is mounted on the bike, the forward right corner (as you sit on the bike) clearances get a little tight with the air intake trumpets and the newly added filter. After putting the top of the air box back on leave the main filter out so that you can confirm the intake trumpets move freely without hitting the filter.

    What does "TT" stand for?
    Has this mod been dyno tested?
    Just curious. I'm not well learned in the G2.

    perhaps it's short for ''tut tut'', the sound people make when they disapprove of someone doing things to their bikes to make more power :rolleyes:

    Triple Threat

    Yes it has been tested. If I remember correctly (the dyno sheets are on starVmax), the top end HP were as good if not better than the Monster Big air kit (very similar to a stage 7 kit....individual pods....etc), and the torque was way better on the low end. Tim Nash has a specific flash for gen 2's using the Triple Threat Airbox. The gen 1 equivalent to this would be Seans muscle jet kit. You still have the airbox, and still use the velocity stacks.

    Just want to say thank you again to Mark for developing this.

    Does anybody have dyno results comparing a bike with the typical airbox mod/exhaust/reflash to one with this triple threat airbox? Also, the first few pics show 4 holes in the top of the airbox cover. Is that stock?

    Those 4 holes were from a previous experiment and not stock.

    I have some detailed data on the power improvements going from the standard airbox with a K&N to the TT. I'll post it when I have the time.

    I just spoke to an owner yesterday who has a Hindle exhaust and the TT mod. He just got the bike back from being Dyno tuned and it made 197 RWHP.

    I'd like to learn more about the Gen2 so any data you can share here would be appreciated.
