Another Mod Just Arrived For My Black Beast

A New Mod Just Arrived For My Black Beast.
I had the same unit on my Raider and loved it so I went ahead and purchased this Air Spike for my Deluxe.
Purchased it on www.T-Motorsports.com for under $90.00.
The unit is heavy and the chrome is perfect.
This will be one mean looking coil cover lol.
I plan on putting some of my new LED's inside the tip of this spike.
Should look cool.
Anyways here is is.

@ Digitalbroccoli yeah we have to order the air spike for the yamaha Vstar 1100. Much like you i went looking (because I didnt want to do the Pseudo HYPERCHARGER for a whopping $250) so had to do a little homework. Hope this helps.

You can purchase the spike for the Yamaha 1100 or the Honda VTX 1300 air spike.
All you will be using from the kit is the mounting Plate and the spike.

Both kits as far as the mounting plate and spike are the exact same thing.

Hmm...interesting, as I love the look of the thing, and that price is a really nice deal when compared to the hypercharger. Sure makes the idea of grabbing an air cleaner and PCIII a lot more appetizing.

I'd love to see pics once it's installed, just to see how complicated the procedure is.

i hope you realize this is ornamental only. it doesn't hook up to the air cleaner at all. just coil cover. you can fool all the others in to thinking it does something though.

It does do something.
It houses the coils and will be accented with red LED's.
The factory side covers are just cosmetic to hide items so I say dress it up with what you think looks cool, or take the factory cover and do the home mod I've already posted.

Why would you put a fake air cleaner on the side, regardless of how cool it looks? Seems a little silly to me.
