Default Air intake question??

Guys, I need your advise. When I purchased my bike I had it upgraded to stage 1. Now I am changing my exhaust to the Hacker Rippers and want to know if I need to upgrade the air intake or is the stage one intake upgrade sufficient? I will also be adding the AMS Fuel Management System with the Exhaust. Any help is helpful.

Where are all the knowledgeable Victory riders that used to be on this forum? I can't believe no one can answer this question. I guess this forum is getting stale. Maybe its time to find another forum that can provide assistance.

What a positive attitude!

You don't "need" to add more air than the stage 1 filter provides, but you can if you want to. If you do, you will get to milk a little more horsepower out of your setup. You can add that at a later time, when and if you decide you want to spend a little more to get a little more.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Thanks for the quick response CrossRoads. I appreciate the feedback. Glad to see that you are still willing to assist.

Do you know if the paper air filter was suppose to be replaced during the Stage 1 upgrade?

A full stage 1 upgrade should include the Stage 1 air filter, Stage 1 download and Stage 1 pipes. The Stage 1 air filter is not paper, but it's the "clean and oil" type (metal mesh). If you see a paper filter on yours, then it was not upgraded to Stage 1 (or at least the air filter wasn't). If it wasn't, K&N's a good $50ish alternative (http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...x?prod=PL-1608) or if you want to go a step above that, at $300ish you have Lloyd'z Airbox (http://www.lloydz.com/store/item_vie...itemid=1000006) or at $280ish the S&S Performance Airbox (http://www.sscycle.com/product/Victo...c/Victory-c57/). Then, if you want to go all out, at $500ish there are Lloyd'z Torque Tubes (http://www.lloydz.com/store/item_vie...itemid=1000085).

As CR mentioned....the stage one comes with the above. If yours did not...then all you probably got was the exhaust. I have the K&N filter for your current setup on ebay I believe for arounf $40 or so.
Try stepping up to the RPW or Freedom exhaust with the S&S or Lloydz intake. Remember on you JP....yopu will need to cut out all that plastic air box if upgrading to the S&S or Lloydz.

The search function on this site works well. I personally don't ask questions without giving it a try first. In this case you would have found plenty of information from people who have done similar mods to yours. The topic of exhaust+air intake+fuel controller has been addressed many times already.

Thank you for that keen insight. I don't know why I didn't think of that. I am so glad you are on this forum so you can help us poor people who don't have your intellect. Now that you have enlightened me I will remember that this forum is now for people to just toot their own horn instead of assisting others.

Got it now. Thanks
