    Angry Anyone have this issue ?

    I installed my Chimera intake with a K&N filter, after about 80kms I checked the spark plug , it is white as milk. When at about 6000rm I hear a rattling sound (seems to be coming from the cyl. )Also sucking in so much air that I can no longer hear the exhaust note from my Moriwaki. Is there such a thing as too much air ?

    Anyone have this issue ?

    It does suck a lot of air and the intake sound is loud. I have not checked my spark. No rattling sound here.

    I have been wondering how folks who have added just this intake and an exhaust would fair. While it's great that this unit appears to be freeing up the oem air supply I am starting to believe that that other mods are needed when adding just these to two items to a stock bike. I find it interesting though that I have only heard of maybe three folks running lean with this intake and an exhaust. Could it be that others are not having issues or are other folks not checking the plug?

    Probably running really lean and the cylinder temps are climbing and causing detonation..... Try 93 octane fuel and see if the rattling goes away..

    try to run better gas ever better than 93 is non-ethanol or non- corn sugar gas as I call it. Sunoco has it that's I run with my inlet tube intake which was free and my briggs air filter. look at diy air box mods for my posts of more pics of how cheap easy and cool looking it is.Name:  GetAttachment (3).jpg

    I would say that my plug is about the same color as yours. I just find this to be too lean to my taste. On my C1100F I threw a valve out the exhaust running with K&N filters. I will try changing fuel. I did notice last fill up there was a claim "May contain 10% bla bla bla......Concerning fuel controlers I see there ar a f ou the, Bazzaz , ELK, the than the price difference .......wht is the difference.

    Or should I say who makes the best and the most user friendly ?
