Airbox mod for 1100?

I've a 2009 & have read a bit about improving airflow with an airbox & filter mod, but am not sure whats involved or whether there'll be a big benefit? I've MIVV Suono cans, so no restrictions there, & its UK bike, so no exhaust cat.
Cheers

Check out TPO parts and their Beast-R kit.... Just fitted one to my 2008 Monster 695 and it's made a huge difference. It removes the air box, changes the velocity stacks, comes with K&N filters and will allow you to also remove the crankcase breather as well. Also, it makes the bike sound great! Just took 7 days to arrive from the USA too

Thanks for the tip. They do for the 1100, so will probably go for it, and Power Commander. Just have to hide the credit card bills fo a couple of months!

Can you tell me how customs/duty works when sending parts to the UK? I want to get a Scotts Performance damper, which is expensive ($585). Duty in Thailand would be over 50% so that's out. I'll be in London next month and could pick it up from a friend. I tried find details on tax and duty from the UK website, but they don't give any useful details.

Post some dyno charts of the before and after results if you get a chance.... I'll be doing the same with my 695 once I get the custom exhaust made and fitted.

As for the import tax, it's 20% but there are ways to get around it... best way is to get the company to mark the parcel as a gift

I'll try asking them but they probably won't agree. May I ask you - is it also necessary to put in a low value e.g. $20? I believe the value of the contents must be stated.

Gift

Yes, the best way to get around the import duty (especially into the UK) is to put a low value for the gift... but not too low, that usually flags up their attention!

Just FYI the TPO Beast & Beast-R intake kits will NOT work with ABS equipped new gen Monsters (09+ 696/796/1100). This is direct from Allen at TPO. Something about the ABS controller being too large and interfering with filter placement.

Yes fortunately my bike relies on me being alert enough to let go of the brake myself. Will be ordering the 'R' kit.
Thanks

Good luck!

Let us know how the kit works out for you.... I fitted mine in under 40 minutes and was really happy with the results from the start
Will post some dyno charts of before and after when I get a chance (when the weather finally gets better over here) but in the meantime I'll be fitting a tail chop kit over the winter!
