Default S&S intake installation.

Gonna be installing this soon on my Highball. Is there anyway to do it without destroying the factory air cleaner? Any tips for the install?

Yeah you do it without cutting the airbox, just have to pull the motor out. Easier to cut the stock airbox

You have to cut I removed mine with one cut in the middle, the back pulled up and out under the gas tank and the front pushed back and came out of the side.

Yep, either remove the motor or cut it out.
I prefer the airsaw myself, here is a pic of the "cable saw" method that I think it mentions in the instructions.

I used the cable saw , 3 cuts and it comes right out . You will NEVER use it again anyway , and no one will ever buy it from you . Start cutting !

just to be different I used tin snips and a Stanley knife.

oh and plan on a fuel controller as soon as she's breathing.....cos it pulls in LOTS more air than stock!
after a plug chop the bottom ring of my plug was blued from heat!

Except the tubes inside of it take them out and sell them to someone making their own torque tube set up.

Yep, but a new air box with the tubes is only $35 from Victory. That's what I'm using to make my own.

Ebay special with free shipping deal of the century, my torque tubes are by far the best bang for the buck I've ever done.
