I have the Maxair predator kit on my 1100. It was easy to install took about 3 hours. I gained the mileage I had lost with the Dynojet kit. I like the way the bike sounds, runs, and starts in all temps. I have rode it in all temps from 25deg to 110deg with no problems for the past 13k miles.
I highly recomend the system.
My bike also has straight pipes, ais removed and the fuel solenoids removed.
Hope this helps.
Doug

maxair predator pro kit

I too would like to hear the good the bad and the ugly. I have a stock 2007 V-Star 1100 Silverado and was thinking about installing the maxair system. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Roger

I have an 06' vstar custom, assisted installing the maxair kit over a year ago with AIS removed. I did get some HP and torque increases, but not as much as hoping for. 50hp to 56hp and torque from 55 to 60.87 checked on Dyno just to see how it was doing. Maxair site does not trust the Dyno testing or think that the techs do not know what they are doing and go more for the feel of power. I like to see numbers though, I think I can get more out of it, so that will be next. Tweaking the carbs a little more. It does ride very good and always power on reserve even after reaching 75mph, after all it is a cruiser. No reason to go crazy. I've lowered the rear 2in, progressive spring, powder coated black custom 16in apes, blacked out most of chrome, I like the subdued look,also custom 2-1 exhaust wrapped w/ exhaust tape. I would recommend maxair kit, it is plug and play.

After installing my Sho-gun Ripsaw exhaust and a dynojet kit I put my 1100 on the dyno pulled 62 hp. Gas mileage dropped to around 35mpg. After installing the Maxair kit and removing the ais, another dyno run 65hp and mileage up to 39-40mpg. I did no tuning on the dyno either time. I think with a little tuning on the dyno I could get 70+ hp. I am very happy with the preformance of the bike now.
I do know that if you do the intake side you also have to do the exhaust.

hmmmm i lost mileage with dynojet too, dont know about mpg but i got about 120 miles to 10 liters before and about 102 miles to 10 liters after....

right now the next step in improving performance is with my intakes, the maxair looks like a good job. i was thinking twin K&Ns with custom made stainless steel intake pipes, but plonking the filters right onto the carbs is a good idea. might want something to direct more air in under the tank though...

Lowering the tone since 1969

I've got Pods mounted under tank same as alot and air has never been a problem. The K&Ns (specifically the RU-600s) fit right in the existing rubber boots for the airbox.

I have the MaxAir kit with the Cobra PowerPro 2 into one exhaust, bikes runs great and I get 45 mpg's with two up. I did fabricate a new air box that drastically reduced the intake noise and has made the bike much more enjoyable!
