High flow intake

Today I received my much anticipated high flow intake from Giuseppe Starace in Italy. A little backround on Giuseppe, he used to be a n engineer for the factory ducati race team. He came up with this new air filter housing that he makes by hand 1 at a time at his shop in Italy. I am told that much research and testing went into these and there are graphs and whatnot floating around as to how it performs. I am a HUGE fan for pieces like this, small company making pieces in house/by hand. These are made to order and I ordered mine about 4 weeks ago. Just my luck, the Italian postal service went on strike for 2 weeks(Giuseppe was in co tact with me throughout the whole process). I am impressed with the visible surface build quality. Usually, from my experience, land made carbon fiber pieces are wavy and pitted, not this one. Everything is included, right down to a fuzzy strap to support the wire harness. I am surprised howmuch it takes to get to the air filter on these bikes. I wish I had known that the 2 bolts on the rectifier did t need to come out to take the rectifier out. I learned that you just need to unplug and slide the whole tray twards you. There is an hour I will never get back. LOL

$160 American. Shipped. It doesn't come with an air filter though. But when you factor in that you can no longer get the larger intake replacement piece from whomever was making them and the only other option is to cut a big hole in your air box directly above the rear cylinder throttle body, I figured i would go for it. Plus, im a guy who loves hand make pieces from small businesses.

My corse intake cost me $15. But this is definitely a wider opening and it's beautifully crafted. Too bad it's gonna live hidden under the gas tank, that thing is a work of art.

How's it seal around the edge of the opening in the airbox?

Included in the kit is a adhesive foam that attached to the perimeter of the carbon fiber piece. I was conserned with sealing at first(before I mounted everything) but once it is all tightened down it looks Like there is a solid seal all the way around. One thing that I didn't realize, I looked at the shipping receipt and it cost him 40 euros to ship it from Italy to Michigan.

Where in Italy is his shop located? I'm moving to Naples soon. Guessing just over $100 if I pick up in store?

Airbox access is a nightmare. I went with MWR as the Corse piece was harder to find than unicorn sperm - went to dozens of Duc performance sites with no luck. Luckily I did the filter mod with 9K service but I still get indigestion thinking about pulling the tank again.

You really think it's that bad? I've done it 15+ times. I have it down to half an hour to remove and about 45 to install.
