Hi guys so this is my first post on any forums. I would like to start off with I have a 2007 victory Kingpin and I am looking to remove the factory air box. Is there a possibility fabricating a new intake or purchasing a cheap but highly effective intake or air cleaner system that isn't going to break the bank. I've been riding for four years this bike has a stage 1 setup but factory air box I don't know a whole lot about motorcycles but I am looking to get into them a little bit more. I am looking to fabricate one similar to what is attached to this post.

If you have stage one on the scooter you should have the reusable, high air flow K&N air filter. The air filter access cover should have holes in it. I would leave it just like it is. There have been people that have modified the air filter set up. I don't know how cheap it was.

Ness Ram gets lots of air for the cheapest price

why not just take a hole saw and drill a few holes in the housing.
Like any improvement to much air, it will lean out the motor and lead to a fuel tuner

Sadly, I do not believe the Ness Ram-Air Intake will work on your 07 scoot. I believe the Steel Frame bikes went to a different intake assembly.

I believe S&S still offers a high flow air cleaner assembly Item #: 41-0021. I put one on my 04 v92tc and was very happy with it. The set-up really cleaned up the area around the engine and helped with performance too.

The down side is that it is not cheap and you will

likely need an EFI tuner. I used a Dobeck, which I was happy with. The folks at Dobeck should be able to help you work around the Stage 1 that is already in place.

Well, for what its worth....My take on this is Motorcycles are similar to the Military. Both entice us by visions of ultra excitement, thrills and dramatic exploration. Much of the time this works out quite well for many of us. However, many of us eventually come face to face with the ugly unforgivable truth of stark insurmountable terror. Be it your over run defensive position in a God forsaken country .OR a horrendous spill at Highway speeds on a over powered graveyard pony Motorcycle. IF you survive either, second guessing yourself will be an inseparable part of your psyche forever. But don't just take my word for it, ask Vets of both endeavors.
Vics are equipped from the Factory with enough potential for acceleration and high end speed than a rider will EVER need, trust me..OR...not...Lecture Over.

I personally could never use the full potential of the power of the bike I'm just going for the aesthetic reasonings behind it and the accessibility of being able to reach everything for a better cleaning as well as the ability to access the valve covers

Ditto. There are plenty of ppl that are happy with a stock bike. I'm truly happy for them. I on the other hand have never been happy with ANYTHING stock. An engineer designs a motor to produce X HP/performance.. and that's what's tested etc. THEN they have to take the engine to X-EPA/Govt oversight to meet emissions etc, not to mention savings from cheaper parts yada yada. There is NO reason for paper filters for intakes on earth other than cost savings and potential sales of replacement parts. Aftermarket intakes, exhaust and tunes restore an engine closer to what it's capable and designed to do. Now it's NUFF SAID.

Me too. If you're scared, say you're scared.
Just because your bike makes more power, that doesn't mean you will crash, doesn't mean you have to use the power, and doesn't mean you have to ride like an idiot. Plus, there's this thing called SKILL. The rider controls the throttle. The bike doesn't ride you, you ride it.

Vics are equipped from the Factory with enough potential for acceleration and high end speed than a rider will EVER need, trust me.. OR... not... Lecture Over.
If you rode my bike you would piss yourself... 79% more power than stock... and I haven't crashed it.

Better advice might be: If you don't have the chops to shoot the big guns, stick with a .22.
