Re: K1300 S Airbox assembly

PM Kiwimat who lives down there, he can help you. I’m certain that mod was done by an Aussie KR rider.

Good luck!

Re: K1300 S Airbox assembly

hey Tomo, depends what your trying to achieve. i didnt like the idea of chopping into the airbox, and i did end up using that space on the LHS of the bike for wiring for driving lights. I was getting my HiFlo air filters from america for $28 delivered and changing regularly.
If you have the cash.... and your looking for a HP gain, a set of akro or arrow headers with appropiate muffler, with or without baffle, does transform the way the engine breaths and changes gears, and which gear you ride in no mapping needed, front wheel comes off the ground before the traction control has time to kick in..... more torque and HP across the rev range, particularly low down and IMHO better engine braking..... when you take the old headers off, you will be appauled at the workmanship.... this mod takes 6-8kg off the bike too.

But... its all about the cash and what you want to achieve.

Re: K1300 S Airbox assembly

Thanks guys,

I have a bit on atm, it could be over a month before I have it sorted.
I will post some pics at each stage of the different mods with my thought on each.
Big thanks to Kiwi Matt ive take it on board and yes a full Systems is on the cards.

Whole im here does anyone know if remus make a full System for the R? Akro carbon race.. Is the slip on hexagonal or round? Very clever sales from Akro notto make the carbon slip on available its own.

Remus do make a full system for the K1300S/R. It is wildly expensive..$2,400+ and it is..IMHO.. not going to flow as good as the Akro and arrow, Remus have exactly copied the original header pipes and have the far left pipe crossing over like the OEM pipes, the Akro and Arrow pipes all come straight down, 2 into 1, then 2 into 1. Much better flow i reakon.
The full arrow system will have a baffle which you can take or leave, i ran mine with it in, no baffle was too loud for me. The full akro system comes with a carbon can which does not have a baffle, and i went to a lot of trouble to try and find one, make one for it, but gave up and cut my Arrow pipe i had to fit the Akro headers... Arrowpovic..
The Arrow headers finish in one pipe at a smaller diameter than the Akro. Not sure how that changes power delivery, Greyfox is very happy with his full arrow system, and would be happy to tell you how great it is.
The Akro Carbon pipe is Hexagonal.
I have a Akro Carbon Slip on in my possession that i might sell.
I might do a K1300 full system thread and post this info with pictures down the track.
