    Did you have to do anything else, ie fuel control, or and remap? Or just left everything stock except for the changing of parts?

    Will regular air cleaners (Indian stock, Indian Big Sucker, Floyds, etc.) work with the 60mm Throttle body? Or is the Venom Plenum the only thing that works with the 60mm throttle body?

    I've had both the Indian Big Sucker stage 1 and the round very nice looking Wimmer 111 intake. But the bike really woke up when I switched to the Venom Plenom (with stock throttle body). From what I understand the issue with the round intake is that the outer cover sits very close to the opening of the throttle body causing restriction at the opening to the throttle body. And moving to the 60mm makes little to no improvement. You can hear the gasping for air noise these intakes make. The Venom Plenom gives the velocity stack effect, maximizing smooth airflow into the engine. It measures 60mm at the throttle body with a smooth taper to match the 54mm manifold. Note that the stock 54mm throttle body still has a restriction at wide open due to the area taken by butterfly valve. Very happy with this intake, although I switched out the hose clamp and pink K&N filter with the Spectre and got a hydrophobic rain sock from Outerwears. Currently running PVCX FM stage 2 tune and just waiting on a tune for 60mm throttle body before buying.

    Looks pretty good all black. I ported my throttlebody and just put a k&n open element on mine and it made a huge difference. If that is any better it's a really good setup.

    the 60 mm throttle body is a direcr replacement over the 54, everything bolts up, its just bigger

    I'd like to see dyno pulls with and w/o the Venom Plenom to validate the seat of your pants. :)

    I like the potential performance aspect of it, if it really does add the ponies substantially, but I don't think it looks good at all. Imho, it ruins the looks of the engine. Just my opinion but it just doesn't fit the lines of the motor from a visual standpoint.

    I do like the OEM performance breather very much. Fits along with the overall design and my butt dyno tells me it also adds performance so I'm happy with it. . .
