Hey where exactly did you get that fork that you're using on the granite peak? I've been looking all over for a fork of that type.

I've dealt with this before. I have purchased and built longer intakes but they do seem to rob power. Best thing that I found was the combination of a short "straight shot" intake and an all foam air filter

I have put on a Billet, "Big-Mouth" Intake Manifold on it since I wrote that and now it fits perfectly.

Good lawd, $35 for that?? Funny how things work right? Like how manufacturers build certain things and it comes out costing the same to them from a 'standard' product to an 'upgraded' product..... like in this case, just opening up the hole bigger and charging 10x more for it or whatever. Was jut thinking.

Anyway, does that intake give you any kind of performance boost at all?

I'm not sure that is the right price, when I got it I paid about $15. I didn't really get much of a noticeable performance upgrade, although, more fuel can flow from the carb so maybe the throttle is more immediate and responsive, I've even flooded it a few times.

No, I just smashed it down with my hands, very slowly, so it wouldn't fall apart, it bends quite a bit. However, I have put a short intake on and I got a new filter that fits perfectly since I took that picture.
