So recently I added a hindle exhaust and bazzaz to my Z...since I had to get the airbox off to make the bazzaz install easier I went ahead and tried to make my own airbox mod while I waited for my Mtake to come in the mail just to see what the difference was. It's just a little silicone pipe they sell right? Similar in length to the stock hose intake I made. So I removed the black corrugated hose from the airbox then zip tied the stock air filter to the end and made a makeshift cold air intake. Got the bazzaz installed and tested it out. The bike flat out ran like garbage. No top end power. I get the Mtake in the mail today and install it...man oh man what a difference it made. When mnnthbx says they tuned the tube length they meant it. I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm glad I spent the money on the Mtake because it flat out works. Solid bolt on power just as advertised. The difference between the Mtake and the airbox mod is night and day. Keep up the awesome work guys!
