I posted earlier about a LCO that is looking into that larger or different air filter on the 1000. This would be so sweet if it unleashed hidden hp and gave something like 1.5 gph!! May be wishful thinking. It's hard to believe as big a company as Kawi is that they wouldn't have something as simple as the air intake set up correctly. Would be super cool if this was the silver bullet though. Would maybe make up for HL blades. If this worked next thing a guy would have to look into would be if any rejetting would be necessary or not on a carbed model.
