I've read several post regarding reduced riding comfort from adding an after market air kit. The extra thickness reportedly interferes with natural placement of the right leg. So the question is - how much thicker are these kits than the stock air box? Anyone have a tape measure or ruler handy?

The only ones that seem to draw complaints are the "Hypercharger" units and similar units that require an adapter plus add a big, bulky housing.
The Tornado and Hurricane stick out more, but they are forward of the stock airbox location and don't pose a problem.

Sounds like the BAK is thinner and the Hypercharger is understandably thicker. How about the round units from Thunder? I don't even notice the stock air box on the Nomad and am trying to get an idea whether or not a new intake (something I am likely to do before too long) would bother me.

Thanks for the info!

How about everyone with an aftermarket and at least one of us with the stock, get over the top of the bike with a tape measure and a camera, tape from the side of the tank and take a photo?

Enough good results and add it to the Sticky threads.

Great Idea!!!

Ok, you get the "awake" award!!!! :mrgreen:

That is a very good idea. If we can generate enough good responses with photos, this thread will help many people now and in the future.

Good Thinking!!
