Default Stock Air Intake 2013 model modify VERSES OIL REPORT

Hi All,
Question about the Air Intake to stock Airbox Jackpot 2013,

As below pictures, the filter is nice and big, but the side covers only the Left cover has air-intake holes in them?? this would restrict airflow as the filter is nice and big? Big enough to have BOTH side-covers with the same holes into them, and now the filter only getting "dirty" from 1 side made me think it would be a good idea to "copy" the Left cover holes.

Do you guys think it is a good idea to drill / cut / grind / exactly the same profile holes into the Right side cover??

Let me know what you think about this?

YES ...Ive gone to a bigger better breathing Ness air filter now , chopped the old airbox out and yes discovered the rhs grilles had no holes behind them, if I was you Id'd make some holes and get more air in , just make sure the shrapnel don't end up inside yr airbox, maybe cut with a stanley knife copying the left holes over to the right.
If you go the big air intake like Ness S&S or LLOYDS youll find the extra air will need extra fuel to compensate and youll need to go to a PCV at best.....but just doing better to the stock airbox youd be ok I reckon

Doesn't a mirror cover to the left side come with the Vic performance air filter kit? If not I think they sell one. Have you looked at an accessory book or site yet?

I only found the high flow filters, but as my bike is still new, I was figuring I could order that on the next "batch" as the first order is already on its way, and was still reading and not sure about the next step to take on air-filters?
"on the way"
= CHROME 4 inch forward control kit
= Radius Illuminated Vertical Sidemount License Plate Bracket CHROME
= VICTORY ONLY Temperature Gage DIPSTICK
= COMPLETE BOLT KIT CHROME
= magnetic drain plug victory motorcycle
= K&n OIL FILTER VICTORY MOTORCYCLE

I did not find the L & R cover with air-intake holes yet on the websites, did you see them somewhere?, in future surly a nicer looking air-filter will be fitted? or ordering just a high flow insert as the link below, should do "ok" as the dust pollution is quite high here I need a good filtering system

http://www.lloydz.com/store/item_vie...itemid=1000013

and a good fuel filtering system too, I just figured?

That looks great! Kinda like drilling the hole(s) in the front of the old style air box. Everybody did that.... Even saw Lloyd do it. I have an 11 Pin with the same style airbox. Victory changed the newer airboxes, but not sure what year. The Stage 1 door will work on the left side, but won't get you any more air. It is open behind the chrome cover, but doesn't stick out as far and doesn't have the bottom holes. Same function, different look. The difference is, the chrome "cover only" that sticks on the right side of the airbox, will NOT fit the box. They changed the contour. I actually talked to Victory (now, THAT took several days and an act of God and congress), and they said the only thing you do for Stage 1 airbox is go to K&N filter. The holes in stock airbox are made large enough for Stage 1 air. I really do like the opening of the bottom of the left side though !!!

Pheonix, please send some pictures of your air-box if it is still in original state, and do you like the high flow K&N filter? yes i read on the forums and internet that nothing need to change, just pull out the original filter and replace it with the high flow....

This makes me think? Wouldn't the high flow air filter letting more "dirt / dust" trough?? as I mentioned it is a "dusty" place here....

Holes in the front, hmmmm nice idea, hahah ok guess I did it different by following Victory design..... of 2013 thanks for liking my fiddling around

I contact USA Victory a lot and they write back all the time COZ YOU GUYS can go to your shop or neighbor and assist fixing it??? My bike is standing parked-up because I still do not have Victory Oil...... sins 20 December 2013 anyway i bought 1 box Victory Oil in Jakarta and hopefully in my house NEXT WEEK but that will be a different tread.......

My airbox on the 2011 is the same as your 2013. The holes were drilled in the front of the earlier airboxes. They weren't even close to what these look like. If you're running the stock download, you don't want the K&N filter. You'd run too lean and would get hotter motor and popping on decel. If you run a fuel controller or Stage 1 download, the K&N is the way to go. Never had an issue with not filtering as well as OEM, IMHO. Look at thier website and decide for yourself.

You are right about this K&N filter, a lot of changes to be made for that, thanks for that info....

Better I wait for the "free exhaust" of the victory shop they will give me (no idea witch one?) and then see if I need the Lloydz timing & Fuel Gen III / ETC.. to run this exhaust AND K&N high flow AIR FILTER

Time will tell, I am never in a hurry, and the bike is running GREAT stock so actually no need to change anything ONLY i like the smaller PULLEY up front for faster acaleration, but the sound of Victory is too mellow / not that "nice" so in future need a better sound, and I love the sound of AIR INTAKE on my 4x4 so why not on my Victory????

oh yeah way cool!

if yr in a dusty place I'd be sticking with the K&N filter insert in the standard airbox with your cutouts, you'll notice the front is fairly open too.
With a lot of dust you'll need to be using the K&N filter recharge kit and following the instructions to clean and reoil regularly.
Unless you can afford the Lloydz Torque Tubes cleaning the Ness like I gotwill be a total pain in the arse as it has to come off the throttle body...The other two 'blingy' LLOYDZ and S&S air filters do at least come apart without total removal but you do need to take the fuel tank off each time.
The shiny bling aint needed cos you cant see the top of them with the tank on anyway.
Someone needs to make one not shiney that comes apart for cleaning....Id buy one for ease of cleaning.
I just sold a Stage one filter and fluted chrome covers on ebay for $49.99 post incl.
Probably go for the expensive torque tubes when I can afford em and resell the Ness
