Air intake and air filters

I have a 2010 raider s and I am looking to put in a new air intake or air filter for increased performance (even if it's just a little). Does anyone know if there is an air intake you can put on a raider that will genuinely increase performance? Please feel free to post photos as well!

You can get a KN filter and keep the stock box, get a Barons BAK, Patrick Racing BAK, or google eBay for "Brains" airbox mod.

What kind of performance will this give? I was looking at the big air kit but not sure if there are any cons. I believe that Brian's mod is a lot cheaper. I have the cobra FI2000R auto tune as well.

I just received the BAM kit so I'll try to get it installed and let you guys know how it works.

Ok I did a lot of stuff while I had the tank off, USB charger, LED lights, BAM setup with the K&M filter, and at first very short ride not getting out of 2nd... VERY cool look with the lights and YES, a noticeable difference in HP. I cant wait to take it on a normal 4 hour ride to let the Cobra Fi2000R fuel manager get thes ettings down... I'll keep you posted. Also, I took a lot of pictures showing how I did all of it... of coarse you guys probably already know how to do it. Hah, no making fun of me...
Pictures on the way soon.

If you haven't done it yet, get your ECU flashed by Ivan. Well worth the cost and performance is not just "noticeable" - it's more like riding a whole new bike.

I know Ivan's flash made a very noticeable difference with my Bolt. I was a little skeptical at first but after reading through a 30+ page thread of reviews on the Bolt forum I knew I had to try. The biggest difference was on the highway. Like you said it's like a different bike.

Any idea what it cost?
Doe it take the place of the Cobra Fi2000R fuel manager?
