Looks goodInstalled Lloyd’z facet cut air box. Was going to get a local shop to do it but decided to save myself some $, watch some videos and do it myself. I was a bit intimidated by the whole unbolting the gas tank part and messing with the throttle body. But after seeing how it’s done, I sucked it up and it wasn’t that bad.
EXCEPT, THE FIRST PART (file this under “what in the hell are you thinking, Indian?”). The bolts holding on the stock air cover were stripped, and Indian has decided to loctite all outside bolts. I tried a drill screw extractor, using a rubber band, nothing worked. I finally had to Dremel the screw heads with a metal cutter, which sent sparks everywhere, and then covered as much paint as possible with towels. It finally came off once the bolt heads were gone. Luckily, I’m not intending to use the stock cover again, otherwise I would have been screwed. But it’s not acceptable that Indian would make it so damn hard to remove something they know most people will swap out, unless their goal is to force you to use a dealer to do it. This was a major hassle, but I did it and put in the stage 1 tune from CraigB (haven’t ridden it yet; it’s 2000 degrees in Texas, May take it for a spin tonight though).

Looks goodI finished the horn cover insert today. I started with a 2.5 inch medal with a top loop that I removed. I then did some polishing with my dremel and finished it off with a satin clear coat. I attached it with gorilla tape. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.
