just thought id chime in on the gutted airbox, after i did mine, from a standstill it almost seems to be kinda laggy? but it seems more responsive on the move, but im probably just in need of a tune up...as far as sound goes theres quite a loud noise on cold start...i also have about a 3x3 opening in the front, im sure i did something similart to MOS, i also removed BOTH baffles in the air box, one on each piece of the air box...the engine has a much deeper sound to me now...more throaty instead of whirry at high rpms...if your anything like me youll like it...but other than maybe a bit of throttle response i didnt notice much difference, but do it for the added sound if nothing else, mine quiets back down after a few minutes after start up, cause its REALLY annoying kinda when you first start it.
