Wondering if anyone has one off their bikes right now? I bought a hypercharger "knock off" if you will and I'm wondering if the adapter would fit? I'd prefer to buy one as they're not too expensive but if it's not going to fit then I'll just have to machine one myself. Pretty much what I'm asking is if anyone has the abilitly and time to take some measurements for me? Thickness, size of round hole etc... etc...
Thanks guys

It's not quite a "knock off" but it's the same shape as the hypercharger without the butterflies... I'll take some pics as soon as I can.

i will take it apart tomorrow and see i looks the same but not sure i will write you tomorrow
Thank you so much that would be awesome of you. I would make one myself but if I can just order one that would work it would save me a headache of fabing one up.

No worries man, no worries at all... I'm kinda leaning towards getting the adapter anyways. If it doesn't fit then I'm sure I can always find someone to take it off my hands.

I bought it off of Debrix's ebay store... with Shipping it came to 90 bucks. It's meant for a Harley but I'm going out on a limb that most of the air cleaners have a pretty standard size and that's where the adapters come in. Probably a lot easier to stamp out all the same size aircleaners and just make some adapters for different bikes.

Like I said, no worries at all man. It's Christmas time... we're all busier than normal :) Given that it fits then I'll probably let everyone know so that we can all start using different aorcleaners then the few we can.

Can you give me the exact listing for the e-Bay store when you got your hypercharger?

Yup... that's what caught my attention to try this. If it works with the thunder air adapter then we've found a cheaper alternative to the hypercharger. It's not just the hypercharger rip off but all the round hole ones... like the maltese cross, round one, bell ones.... and they're all under 90 bucks!
