Maybe a link to the air box mod? I don't see it on their site.
I am one that appreciates going outside the box to modify, change, improve.
I have also learned that re-inventing the wheel can be a bit frustrating.
Going with a known package, as I assume you are trying to do with "Holeshot", can eliminate issues that doing it yourself often uncover.
Not sure if you got your feathers ruffled by BigB's post, but it was a valid question. He has been around these bikes for many years...
I too have some experience with them. One thing that has come up multiple times is airbox mods. Especially on the SV 1000's, which are similar to the DL 1000. In about every one of those cases, when actually tested on a dyno, airbox mods have not produced more power in bikes that are not full race setups. Power was down in fact. But your modification is a bit different than what others have done. Using a MAP sensor, it has been determined that the airbox isn't a restriction to power. It is actually a very good design. There is work you can do to snorkles to change tuning, but again that usually would only apply to highly modified bikes. If you get a chance to dyno the bike, it would be easy to simply tape over the added vents to see if they improve power output.
